Stop deciphering what Apple may do in the VR or AR markets—former Apple exec Richard Kerris’ logical break-down of the VR-AR space just gave us a huge clue as to why the company is taking so long.
Many Architosh readers may remember Richard Kerris from his days at Apple as Senior Director of Developer Technologies (his role from 2001 – 2007) where he led worldwide developer relations and technical marketing across audio, video, photography and other pro apps. Presenting in eight Steve Jobs keynotes, Kerris was one of the few Apple executives permitted to talk to the press about Apple products. In this second Architosh interview (his first was well over a decade ago) Kerris discusses his career at places like Apple, HP, and Pixar and provides an informed market perspective on virtual and augmented reality (AR/VR), the changing nature of the creative “pro” in digital fields and of course the new Avegant Glyph.
Where is Apple in the VR revolution? VRLA certainly didn’t provide any clues or evidence of why the largest technology company on earth is a no-show in the world of VR.

Chief among them were this blurring of lines disciplines, fields, tool chains and the boundaries between design, manufacture and product use. What we saw at AU 2015 was the emergence of a CAD company transforming into a company that will service industries far and wide across the full spectrum from initial concept to end-user and configuration and optimization based on performance and use data. It is a brave new world and Autodesk is at its leading edge.
