Apple swallows Akonia Holographics
Industry observers suspect that the corporation seeks the acquisition of a revolutionary comeback of the iPhone.

Hardly surprising that the concept of “Holo Mirror” by Akonia Holographics should be at the center of Apple’s efforts.
Specifically, this technological approach allows for colorful images to be projected onto the lenses of the headsets – an optimal extension of the existing Apple portfolio, experts say. And yet, the iPhone group should have a hard time in the competitive AR market segment. Last but not least industry figures like Amazon, Google, Facebook and others want to make the technology accessible in many application areas.
