Today the US Patent & Trademark Office published a continuation patent from Apple relating to wearable electronic devices, such as AirPods Pro and smartglasses, that could produce haptic outputs that could be felt by wearers. More importantly, the haptics could provide users with a distinct directional sensation that would direct the user’s attention to look in a direction in a virtual teleconference and beyond. The patent discusses the use of spatial audio in a video conference which was just introduced at WWDC21.
