Apple could be the latest company to join the virtual reality race after a job listing was posted on the company’s website.
Apple is now seeking an app engineer with experience with "virtual reality systems." This person will be responsible for creating “high performance apps that integrate with Virtual Reality systems for prototyping and user testing." The ad also states that applicants are required to have experience in iOS and OS X app development and "VR/AR development."
Naturally, the ad doesn’t get much more detailed than this, but it indicates that Apple could be preparing to take on virtual reality. This technology is currently the remit of Sony (with Project Morpheus), Facebook (which owns Oculus VR), and Google.
We don’t expect to see anything from Apple any time soon, but there could be some interesting projects on the horizon. Virtual reality is yet to truly take off, but Apple apparently plans to be in the mix when it does.
