Apple recently purchased Sensomotoric Instruments, a German company that makes eye-tracking glasses and virtual reality goggles.

Talk has it that Apple has further interest in the augmented reality world, this time the company has purchased the German company Sensomotoric Instruments.

Sensomotoric Instruments specializes in eye tracking technology, providing professional service for a variety of businesses which calls for eye trackers that can be combined with motion tracking systems, as well as with other biometric data. SMI eye tracking technology can be integrated into virtual reality head mounted displays such as Google Glasses, and Oculus Rift, as well as other similar virtual reality hardware. The company’s eye-tracking glasses are said to record a person’s natural eye movement as well.

This recent purchase would tie in with one of the latest rumors stating that Apple is working on its own Smart Glasses, it’s apparent Apple is quite serious about incorporating AR in the company’s future projects. During WWDC week this year, Apple announced that a kit called ARKit would be coming to iOS 11 which is supposed to assist in future integration with Apple devices.
