Apple Inc.is reported to have acquired Vrvana Inc., a Canadian virtual reality company for $30 million, according to a report from TechCrunch. Vrvana continued to work on new prototypes and has recently been touting a new headset that combines VR and AR as an all-in-one package. VRvana says that the headset is an "extended reality" gadget, which implies it takes from both increased reality and virtual reality innovation.

Apple seems to have declined to comment on the reports, but a number of Vrvana employees have relocated from Montreal to Apple facilities in California. Apple has just purchased VRvana, a company which makes a VR headset called Totem which features several cameras, including an RGB set with a 120 degree field of view which brings the outside world to the inside of the headset, to high resolution OLED screens with only 3 ms latency. Last month, Apple CEO Tim Cook in an interview with The Independent talked about the augmented reality technology in length.

Vrvana's camera-based approach is different from those of others like Microsoft, which deploy transparent-based displays for its HoloLens headsets. The system of cameras enabled 6DoF tracking, so the device can track its position in 3D space, while also using infrared cameras to track the user's hands. It is believed that the company has kept 2019 as the deadline to finish the product and ship it by 2020 if the project goes on as scheduled. Prior to these two, the iPhone maker acquired companies such as Flyby Media, Metaio, Emotient and Faceshift to empower its AR efforts.
