APPLE is working on augmented reality glasses that could ‘beam pictures’ into your eyes.
That’s according to a recent patent application filed by the company.

AppleInsider spotted the application document which stated that Apple was looking into a “Direct retinal projector”.
That means it could skip the need for lenses in the glasses.
Mirrors could be used to beam content into your eyes instead.
The US patent also mentioned a “gaze tracking system” that “automatically adjusts projection of a scanned light field so that the light field enters the pupil”.
Apple is reportedly looking into this option to try and bypass issues that some companies are having with AR.
