Apple acquires German specialized AR


Apple today confirmed its acquisition of a German computer vision company called SensoMotoric Instruments.

Apple has not officially confirmed the deal, as it never publicly discloses its acquisitions.

Yet Apple CEO Tim Cook has expressed in interviews that he thinks AR is a burgeoning and hugely impactful technology.

WWDC gathering earlier this month, Apple also unveiled its new ARKit platform to let developers build new apps that take advantage of the iPhone’s camera and sensors to perform depth estimation and place virtual objects in real-world environments.
