Apple makes its AR/VR headset official with the Vision Pro

Apple has finally unveiled its long-awaited augmented reality headset, the Apple Vision Pro, at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). The $3,500 device is Tim Cook’s signature addition to the Apple lineup, making it one of the most significant announcements of the event and, who knows, most likely his career. The Vision Pro headset is what you’d get if ski goggles and an iPhone had a wild night, resulting in a mind-blowing fusion of spatial computing shenanigans. The Vision Pro is primarily focused on AR but can switch between AR and full VR using a dial – talk about having your cake and eating it too. The headset runs on an M2 chip paired with a new R1 chip for video streaming, boasting micro-OLED displays that are sharper than a tack. Apple even teamed up with Zeiss for custom prescription glass inserts, so glasses-wearers won’t feel left out. While this fancy headset isn’t exactly meant for casual strolls outdoors, it does have some impressive features. EyeSight, a front-facing display system, reveals your eyes to others in the room, creating an “authentic representation of you” on the curved front glass. Your face scan also becomes your avatar, giving everyone a taste of your digital doppelgänger.
