Patent: a digital crown for Apple Glasses

Apparently, Apple would consider integrating a digital crown to its Apple Glasses, just like the AirPods Max. This is, in any case, the meaning of a new patent published today by theUSPTO. In the latter, she thinks about possible actions in order to take control of her ARVR headset in the easiest way.

The Californian firm starts from a description of the current situation -using subtle paraphrases to designate his helmet and preferring to use the consecrated term of head-mounted device that displays visual information in the user’s field of vision. It can additionally be used as a virtual reality (VR) system, augmented reality (AR) system and/or mixed reality (MR) system. The interaction between the user and his helmet can be done by visual, audio or tactile messages with haptic feedback.

As for the Apple Watch, it would thus be possible to turn the crown, to press one or more times or for a long time depending on the desired action. Equipped with haptic feedback, the Digital Crown of Apple Glasses could thus easily inform the user taking into account his request, without having to vibrate the entire device, which could be annoying.
