Apple patent filing involves an augmented virtual display for an automobile

Let the Apple Car rumors roll on. Apple has filed for a patent (number 20200082638) for an augmented virtual display (VR) for an automobile that would implement methods that address problems with vehicles in motion that may result in motion sickness for passengers. 

The VR system may provide augmented or virtual views that match visual cues with the physical motions that a passenger experiences. It may project virtual content so that the content appears as a distant object stabilized or fixed in the external environment. 

Apple says such a system may aid in productivity, as passengers may perform work while riding in the vehicle without experiencing motion sickness. In addition, the VR system may provide enhanced virtual experiences to passengers in moving vehicles by matching accelerations and motions of the vehicle to accelerations and motions in the virtual experiences.
