Apple wins a Patent for a Mixed Reality HMD that could assist those with various stages of Alzheimer’s Disease – Patently Apple

Today the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office officially granted Apple a patent that relates to head-mounted devices, and, more particularly, to head-mounted devices that can detect and respond to a user's behavior. More specifically, Apple's patent envisions their future Mixed Reality Headset being able to test and assist seniors suspected of showing signs of Alzheimer's Disease. With the use of Augmented Reality, exercises could be performed in the real world that test for aphasia and apraxia. It could also detect and respond to a user's expressions of agnosia. Lastly, the AR features could flash names of people in front of them should they forget and much more. This is a great endeavor and I hope that Apple will one day be able to deliver this patented concept to the public.
