Apple may have just turned reality upside down.
Considering their latest technology innovation, Apple has just introduced its first augmented reality headset that has been trending on the internet ever since its recent first look at the WWDC.
What’s dubbed the Apple Vision Pro, this new product is more than just your average VR headset considering the new technology is able to blend reality and what’s in front of you and digital content.
It’s also the first item in the Apple universe that lets you “look through and not at” while wearing the headset.
While wearing the headset, individuals will still be able to see what’s happening around and in front of them unlike other VR “googles” that completely block your view.
“Vision Pro creates an infinite canvas for apps that scales beyond the boundaries of a traditional display and introduces a fully three-dimensional user interface controlled by the most natural and intuitive inputs possible–a user’s eyes, hands, and voice,” Apple explains in a press release.Apple
Not to mention, the headset also omits any type of controller that’s required for other headsets and is able to solely operate with just the user’s eyes, hands, and voice.
So when it’s time to exit an app and enter a new one, all you have to do is move your eyes.
Of course when it comes to gaming that most VR headsets were intended for, Apple’s Vision Pro can do the same with more than 100 titles that will available to play.
Other apps such as Disney+ will even be available to use with your headset as well as the possibility of virtually attending sports games.
Can you imagine sitting courtside, virtually at your favorite home team’s basketball game.
Consider away games easier to attend.
While plugged in, Apple’s headset can be used for 24 hours but if you’re only relying on its battery life without using an outlet, you can expect up to 2 hours of usage at a time.
Apple plans on making their headset available to the public early next year with a starting price of $3,500.
So if you’re thinking about purchasing Apple’s VR headset, it’s going to cost you a pretty penny.
