The reported Apple mixed reality headset might make app development accessible to those with no programming background. According to the Information, Apple is developing a technology that would allow anyone to make Siri-powered augmented reality apps. You’d tell the voice assistant what you want, and digital animals would run around the room. You wouldn’t need modeling, animation, or other traditional programming software.
Fabric Software, a Canadian company Apple stealthily acquired in 2017, is thought to power the AR authoring tool. The acquired startup’s Fabric Engine uses procedural generation, a method found in games like No Man’s Sky. It enables developers to construct environments and objects autonomously. Most people think that Fabric co-founder Peter Zion is in charge of the development tool project right now. Also, in 2016, Apple purchased DigitalRune, a company whose goal was to simplify the creation of 3D video games.
If you’re developing a headset app for the Apple TV, you may not need to make any custom assets. However, scanning and importing things that, with any luck, would appear and behave realistically would be possible. No longer would standard devices from Apple need to suffice. Apps like Object Capture, which turns iPhone photos into 3D models, and RoomPlan. It lets you make virtual floor plans seem to be part of these efforts.

There will be no more comments from the corporation. However, the current status of Apple’s planned Siri-based development suite is unknown. However, insiders claim that the company’s initial intention was to release it simultaneously with the headset. But, the latest rumours suggest that the release of the wearable could come as soon as this spring.
The initially mixed reality headset (perhaps named Reality Pro) was expected to be quite expensive. Besides, it aimed towards professionals rather than casual users. However, rumours and leaks indicate that Apple is still working on features that appeal to a wide audience. These features include avatar-based FaceTime conversations and health and fitness apps that may offer a meditative experience. By encouraging the creation of apps and providing a simple programming environment, Apple may be laying the groundwork for a more affordable wearable device.
