Apple Vision Pro is Augmented Reality: Basically, it’s a see-through computer on your face


Important Takeaways:

  • Apple Vision Pro review: magic, until it’s not
  • There’s a lot of pressure on the new Apple Vision Pro, Apple’s long-awaited entry into the world of computers you wear on your face. Apple claims that the Vision Pro, which starts at $3,499, is the beginning of something called “spatial computing,” which basically boils down to running apps all around you. And the company’s ads for it do not hedge that pressure even a little: they show people wearing the Vision Pro all the time. At work! Doing laundry! Playing with their kids! The ambition is enormous: to layer apps and information over the real world — to augment reality.
  • As I’ve been using it for the past few days, I kept coming up with a series of questions — questions about whether the tradeoffs were worth it.
    • Is using the Vision Pro so good that I’m willing to mess up my hair every time I put it on
    • Is it so good that I want to lug it around in its giant carrying case instead of my laptop bag?
    • Is it so good that I want to look at the world around me through screens instead of with my own eyes?
  • Basically, I keep asking if I prefer using a computer in there rather than out here. And as interesting as the Vision Pro is, there’s a long way to go before it can beat out here.
