Discussion of Apple's New Patent to Dramatically Reduce the Size of VR Headsets

TXRX Labs 205 Roberts st , Houston, TX 77003 (map)

It's gone largely under the radar, but Apple just dropped a bombshell of a patent that has the potential to reduce the size and weight of VR headsets dramatically. What do Maksutov–Cassegrain telescopes have to do with ripping the lenses out of VR HMDs? Drop by and we'll turn patent-lawyer gibberish into a human-understandable explanation of how Apple may cut the weight and depth of VR headsets by 50% or more!

Also, if you have a VR or AR project in progress, drop by before the presentation to sign up for a 5-minute time-slot for Project Show & Tell!

As always, we'll cover the latest VR and AR news, and have multiple Oculus Rifts and HTC Vives to try out. The more hardware, the merrier, so if you have equipment, feel free to bring it in!

Everyone is welcome!
