Apple has developed a new augmented reality headset called the Apple Vision Pro that promises an enhanced experience.
The gadget is controller-free, opting for eyes, hands, and voice commands to run the many functions of it. Once users place the device on their heads, they can browse apps by just looking at the icons via the visionOS operating system. Users will be familiar with the apps, as they are most of the same ones available on most Apple products.
Of its 12 total cameras, Apple Vision Pro is equipped with a downward-facing camera that can capture photos of your hands, which will come in handy for those wanting to record themselves doing hair, and nails, working on vehicles, or any other form of labor that can be used for content. The headset will also use Bluetooth to connect to Macbooks, allowing people to access their computers using their eyes. Buyers will view all this through a glass 4K display and aluminum frame that is cooled with a fan to prevent overheating.
People can create their own reality by projecting 3D objects into real spaces. Say, for instance, you wanted to make the Beyoncé Renaissance World Tour but missed the ticket window. Simply pull up a video on YouTube, and just like that, you can virtually launch the show into your living room, curating your very own unique music experience.
Anyone ready to get their hands on the Apple Vision Pro will have to wait a bit as Apple puts the finishing touches on the headset. It is expected to hit the U.S. market in early 2024 with a price tag of $3,499.
