What technology is Apple developing that might eat away at their biggest success - the iPhone - and might (incidentally?) lead to a revolution in how films are delivered and watched?
In 2012 Apple has filed an additional patent application for a "head-mounted display" or "HMD."
Such a wirelessly connected "device that a person wears on the head in order to have video information directly displayed in front of the eyes" might just kill off the iPhone - replacing the brick that falls out of your pocket, with a pair of glasses that allows you to phone people by simply giving verbal instructions.
Here's the question that should intrigue filmmakers: In addition, could an HMD from Apple also allow you to watch motions pictures that are streamed wirelessly to your headset with iPod quality audio - motion picture images that might appear to bigger and better than anything projected on a multiplex screen?
