    Not gonna lie I’m getting the strongest “real life Black Mirror” vibes I’ve ever had from this and it feels absolutely surreal

    • Zaydan Alfariz says:

      Yeah, it defo looks like it. Maybe Apple should redesign it to something other than ski glass

    • MrUnknown says:

      Also, Watching a guy take a photo of his kids playing, while wearing ski goggles in the presentation might be the bleakest thing I’ve ever seen.

    • Glenda Baptiste says:

      This is as small as Apple could manage for now. I’m sure it will be refined in future versions

    • πRMD says:

      especially in the memory section that was uthopian as hell… When the price will drop let’s get ready even for more isolation! (to be fair the price is lower then expected I don’t get why people are freaked out, the tech is indeed impressive, especially if it’s going to work as well as shown)

      @MrUnknown Imagine being used for…

    My biggest question was about how multiple Vision Pro devices will interact with each other. What happens when two of these are together in the same room? Can you work on the same project together, in the same space? Can you have a 3D model of your friend sit on the couch next to you and watch the same movie together? How about when they’re apart–can there be a scenario where you go to your friend’s room across the country, you see each other, like in VRChat, and you can sit and have a conversation?

    The one thing that stood out for me after watching Apple’s release video was that ridiculous use case of the dad recording a 3D video of his kids. I had the exact same reaction that Marques had: really? there’s this precious moment unfolding right in front of you and you’re choosing to experience it from behind an opaque plastic helmet? It’s like how people pay hundreds of dollars to go to a concert and choose to view it through their smartphone display, only worse.

    • TheHardcard says:

      Is it much worse than Dad having a giant camcorder or film recorder on his shoulder sticking out 2 feet?

    • BattleBladeWarrior says:

      That’s pretty normal for most peoples childhoods though, Id assume. Weather its a camcorder, headset, phone, etc, there’s usually always one parent (typically the father) in the back filming everything, so they have a memory they can look back on later, at school plays, birthdays, etc.

      I’m actually shocked people find that strange.

    • Eon says:

      ​@BattleBladeWarriorPeople just like to complain about new stuff

    • Truth Watcher says:

      Some people have spent their entire childhood being filmed by their parents in a way of another, nowadays they’re even being posted online without their consent, so this headset in particular doesn’t look like such a big deal in comparison

    • 10BlackGuys says:

      Y’all complain about anything

  4. Marie Tailor says:

    Can I just say – this genuinely seems like a breakthrough in communication technology for people with extremely limited mobility.

    The coolest part is seeing that MB is truly excited by how fast he’s talking. This is the review I’ve been waiting for since the end of the event yesterday

  6. irfan koç says:

    I think the crazy stuff and timing is with Amazons *AMZT30* in case you didn’t know it’s also something which just came up and way smarter

  7. Karl Rock says:

    Great explanation. It’ll be really fun to try out and experience it that first time. Can’t imagine I’d buy one and use it a lot though, not yet anyway.

  8. SOUNDWAIV says:

    This honestly is a bit creepy, but I think it’s really good especially for a first-generation project. Later down the line, if it’s more affordable, I think it would be very cool to use.

  9. None says:

    As a VR enthusiast starting with the Vive in 2017, I’m a bit lukewarm on the headset itself but excited to see tech giants making major investments to advance the AR/VR space.

    • Cam says:

      watch the disney apple vr video. i thought it was nothing new, until I considered disney and the implications for vr

    • B G says:

      Same here. Still got my original HTC vive. I am not into apple ecosystem but it is a huge moment for AR/VR or “spacial computing”.

  10. Tanstaafl says:

    I can see the reason for the display on the outside other than “neat”. It’s kind of a safety feature for people around you while you wear it. They don’t have to think, “Is he looking at me?” They just know by looking. Can cut down on the creep factor for some people.
