Apple will have paid about 250 million kronor for Vrvana. The company has chosen not to comment on the data, but a number of Vrvana employees have moved from Montreal to Cupertino.
Vrvana's first product is an unprecedented headset called Totem, which mixes years and years in any company called "extended reality ". The headset has sensors for measuring both the movements of the head and the hands without any external controls or gloves. Like Apple's Face ID technology, Totem uses infrared light to look in 3d.
