Apple Built Google Glass Like Prototypes

Around the time when the iPod was coming into its own, Apple Incorporated is said to have flirted with the idea of producing a Google Glass-like device. The former Apple exec, Tony Fadell even claims to have constructed a whole bunch of such devices from scratch. The basic concept was one of manufacturing a visor that you could attach to your noggin. The experience was said to be purely theatrical. And although many samples were created ultimately the whole process was sealed. 

Apple instead opted for other products which have made it quite a household word in the league of such greats as Microsoft and Yahoo. However, Fadell’s words ought to be taken with a grain of salt. They may be more hype than reality. While Apple did have an affair with the Glasses Game back in its iPod era, it was brief and probably never amounted to anything. 

The iPod was in fact what Apple concentrated upon and perfected for the market. And it was a huge success. Virtual Reality (VR) was never Apple’s strong suit. So, all this talk of prototypes may be more hearsay than hard talk. And while Apple did deconstruct everything that came in its line of vision, ultimately it stuck to basics when it came to feasible products. 

With billions of dollars at its command, Apple Incorporated has better things to do with its time. It is working on its rumored wearable device, iWatch this time. It can’t afford to spread itself too thin in the process of diversification. To keep it simple was good enough for Steve Jobs and his company
