Rumor: Apple AR Headset to Include 15 Cameras

i-Micronews and AppleInsider quote analyst Ming-Chi Kuo saying that Apple rumored AR/MR headset is to be presented to the world in 2022 and will include 15 integrated cameras:

"Eight camera modules, supplied mainly by Largan, are expected to be placed around the wearable "helmet" to facilitate pass-through VR, a technology that allows users to "see through" the enclosed device by feeding exterior images onto interior screens. Apple's product is said to utilize high-resolution MicroOLED displays.

Along with the eight cameras dedicated to pass-through VR, six modules will feed "innovative biometrics," Kuo says. It is unclear if the analyst is referencing user security biometrics — like Face ID — or the ability to capture facial features and body movements of others nearby for inclusion in a simulated experience.

Finally, a single camera module will be installed for environmental detection purposes."
