51 sec read

Apple’s newly granted patent for a pair of goggles designed for watching video from iDevices raises the question: How dumb are you willing to look for a quality mobile video experience? Detailed specs of the, well, specs were revealed by CNET today, showing what essentially looks like a pair of ski goggles designed to be hardwired into an iPhone or iPad. Referred to as a “Head-mounted display” in the official form filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark office, the patent describes the goggles in short detail.

Apple may cook up a pair of goggles for your own personal viewing pleasure. Published Thursday by the US Patent and Trademark Office, a patent application dubbed simply “Head mounted display” describes a head-mounted goggle system that could serve as your personal TV away from home. The device would display movies and TV shows from your phone or tablet, offering you a more private and integrated viewing experience. As Apple describes the concept in its patent filing: “A goggle system for providing a personal media viewing experience to a user is provided. The goggle system may include an outer cover, a mid-frame, optical components for generating the media display, and a lens on which the generated media displayed is provided to the user. The goggle system, or head mounted display may have any suitable appearance. For example, the goggle system may resemble ski or motorcycle goggles,” the application reads.
