Apple reportedly filed for a May 3 patent for an entertainment system, which could replace a real-world scene in a car with virtual environments, according to Huff Post.
An Apple patent, granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, is for a headset that helps relieve motion sickness for those using self-driving cars. “A virtual reality system may provide immersive virtual reality experiences by replacing a real-world perspective with virtual environments. Active vehicle systems and/or vehicle control systems can be combined with a virtual reality system to provide physical effects with virtual experiences,” states the patent summary.
