Apple EyePods Coming Soon

According to a note from TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will release its version of smart glasses in the middle of 2020. I have no idea what they will be called.

When I think about the recent history of augmented reality eyewear, I fondly remember being called a “Glasshole” when sporting my Google Glass in public, and being too embarrassed to wear my Snap Spectacles in public.

While Microsoft’s HoloLens is an awesome device with all kinds of obvious uses, it portends a population of humans in Star Wars stormtrooper or Darth Vader helmets and battery-pack bandoliers to power them and to hold powerful low latency, high bandwidth broadband transceivers.

It looks like Apple is thinking about smart glasses as an iPhone accessory. That sounds like a good place to start. We shall… um… see.
