Apple reportedly has hundreds of people working on a secret virtual reality team

Apple CEO Tim Cook this week said virtual reality "has some interesting applications," so much so the company has already compiled a secret team of hundreds of people to work on the technology, according to the Financial Times. The team was created, the FT says, through calculated acquisitions and the poaching of virtual and augmented reality experts from competitors like Microsoft and camera companies like Lytro. The group marks Apple's second under-the-wraps foray into virtual reality, having once tried in the mid-2000s under former CEO Steve Jobs before scrapping the project because the technology wasn't advanced enough yet, according to the FT.

Not surprising. What tech company wouldn't be interested in both AR and VR?

"Alright team, corpo wants us to develop VR, we can start by making a team to do all the work, it just has to be secret. Sounds good team?"
