It’s incredibly foolhardy to ascribe any concrete plans to Apple based on the publishing of a patent. The company is incredibly prolific in this department, publishing literally thousands a year. Sometimes, however, a patent is interesting enough to point out just because it indicates that the very smart engineers at the company are even thinking about a topic.
That’s the category that a patent granted to Apple today falls into. It’s entitled “Peripheral treatment for head-mounted displays” and it centers around techniques for projecting an image onto the eyes of a user via a viewable display. Much in the way that Google’s Project Glass appears to work.
