is building a new augmented reality headset that will overlay digital information on top of the real world, according to Bloomberg.
The headset could work similarly to the that are already available for Apple's new iPhones. These apps allow users to peek through the display to see information — such as games or even digital furniture — placed within the real world.

The product is now more targeted at enterprise users. Apple will need to avoid the same mistakes Google made, including developing a headset that looks more normal — perhaps like a regular pair of glasses — to avoid some of the Google Glass' shortfalls.
Apple declined comment for this story.
