Vision Pro
« on: June 06, 2023, 07:15:28 AM »
Obviously, I didn't need a whole lot of selling. All they had to do was come to the table and I was pretty much ready to go, but sheesh Apple!  I'm not sure if I was more impressed by the technology and the hardware or by the messaging. Never once VR, no metaverse, no goofy avatars, no cartoony home worlds,  no fluff at all. Only the lightest mention, late in the presentation, about gaming. So well done. I see this thing changing computing, changing work, changing entertainment, changing communication, changing content creation, changing education, changing collaboration. So many things. Did you watch it? What did you guys think?

I've got friends who work in the VR space and it's still early but it will change the world once it's debugged and smoothed.

I think AR is the way to get people in. I can see using it in design and architecture and pretty much anywhere multiple people have to look at a screen in the same space, or apart, together.

Like all Apple products it'll be too expensive at first... and it'll create a new market where one didn't exist.

Much better than I expected.

Made me think, hum, maybe the Apple Car won’t be a flop if it ever arrives.

The apple car will be absolutely amazing IF it ever arrives.  That's the thing.  Apple would never launch it unless it is - that's core to the engineering culture there.  They've been screwing around with the project for 10 years now and I bet we'll never see it.  But if we do, I'm confident it will be jaw-dropping

Wow wow wow.  We've been using these for 5 days now and holy crap. Apple has really done themselves with this thing.

One thing to know if you are interested is that fit is king and will make or break your experience. There are 30 different options for light shields, four options for light shield cushions, and six options for straps.  you have to get this part perfect to really enjoy the product and the widget which does it for you online doesn't work well. You need to go in and spend your time at the Apple Store trying on a lot of different options.

So stoked to see where this is heading!

Utterly thunderstruck, and yet mildly underwhelmed. I actually know what he's talking about. It's equal parts super incredible (and oddly for Apple) kind of buggy and hole-ey. The fit can be done, but it is problematic. All those first GEN, first world problems :-).
