Apple Inc. has gone ahead and finalized a deal that would put them one step closer to providing virtual reality to those who will use their devices in the future.
According to initial reports, it appears that Apple has acquired the German company Metaio.
Metaio specializes in crafting applications that focus on augmented reality.
The company had abruptly ceased selling any of their products Wednesday night, which had left some puzzled.
But on further investigation, documents filed with the German courts appeared that confirm the purchase.
Metaio’s products range from business tools to cloud services, and consists of six in all.
Apple’s move puts them closer to manufacturing a virtual reality aspect for their company that can be applied in different ways; one point of speculation deals with the possibility of trying on clothing with the assistance of the Apple Watch.
