    I just realized after finishing the video that 95 percent of the video there was no background music. I just think it proves that your explanation and analysis are very well explained and that it doesn't need music to make the video " better ".

      Matt M 3 months ago +9

      We wouldnt need to model anything if everything is scannable. We are already developing VR in rendering programs like twinmotion. I think modeling will become largely obsolete. With exception to really conceptual designs that aren't in existence yet. With the availability a vast array of details online already, I struggle to see how the profession stays high paying or as viable in the future. I could see the profession being reduced to project coordinator and SD phase of creativity. Def. more of a specialty or niche opposed to general requirement.

    The thing I do appreciate about the 2-way passthrough is that it’s a visual cue to tell the people around you if you can see them or not. That’s a thing I’ve wanted to have for AirPods Pro and Max; Some visual that tells people around me if I’m in Noise Cancellation mode or not

    I'm interested to see developers come up with apps, and if these apps can add much value to our lives or not. Tough to say without some time and trial/error going by. I think there's a decent chance the majority of use-cases are non-essential, which is fine for people who are simply interested in the tech for tech's sake.
    However, for this to actually supplant the current system (personal computer in everyone's pocket) in a more significant way, then they will need to figure out how to add practical value with this device. What's really the benefit of some information overlaid into the world? Saves me 2-3 seconds perhaps at the trade-off of the costs and cumbersome aspects? Or maybe there is a world of practical possibility not yet accessible to us with current tech limitations... Only time will tell!
    The irony is that aside from special cases, the happiest people will probably still continue to be the ones who disconnect from excessive electronic device use anyway, lol

  • The Review Parlour
    The Review Parlour 2 months ago +4

    This first attempt at mixed reality headset from Apple seems really advanced. Apple is out with another revolutionary series of devices. Just really skeptical about the price tag. It's so audacious. But we'll see the adoption rate.

  • Mxlly
    Mxlly Month ago +4

    I think this is the first iteration of it, and it will start out as gimmicky for the select few who want to buy it and be like “hey, check this out!” Eventually, as they improve the tech (like they’ve done with iPods/iPhones) and people become more familiar with it and it shrinks in size/bulkiness, more people will use it as part of their daily routine. This improvement and innovation will probably happen much faster though since apple has the ability to hire and fund the best and brightest.

  • The Engineering Mindset
    The Engineering Mindset 3 months ago +3256

    I've had the oculus for a while, it was revolutionary when I got it and I loved the idea of being able to have extra screens and a nice work environment. But quickly you realise your eyes get sweaty, hot and sore from using the device. The battery life isn't good. The device is heavy on your face. You look ridiculous and aren't going to wear it outside the house. I haven't used it in months. Will this device have the same pitfalls? Perhaps it will finally crack the VR market because of the loyalty of the fans, but the price point is so high, how many people can justify the price.

    • Dennis P
      Dennis P 3 months ago +164

      This is a first gen product to market, I don’t see it taking off in the consumer space but I do see it being very competitive in the enterprise space and government space.
      Specifically, being a strong competitor to Microsoft HoloLens. Give it a few generations to see where it really ends up going.
      I was a early adopter of the 1ST gen HTC vive and a few generations later cost game down and the product got soo much better
      One thing that apple is doing which is massive and gets me excited is the fact you can get custom prescriptions for the lens. As someone that wears glasses, it was one of the key factors that stopped me from using VR headsets since it requires me to put in contacts among other prep work.

    • Morgan Rennie
      Morgan Rennie 3 months ago +241

      A big hurdle for VR is when you have guests at your house. Game consoles, TV, even phones are all acceptable to use. But someone visiting doesn't want to sit there while you're in VR.
      The dad at the birthday is a perfect example. That is too socially unacceptable for now

  • Mars
    Mars 2 months ago +10

    I love the idea for most cases, especially since its not something I would wear for a long time, so many of the long use issues would be an issue, but I have 3 problems:
    1. Apple doesnt have many games and even with this most will likely stay for windows and linux
    2. its super expensive and most people (including me) will not be able to use it because of that price tag
    3. used sale of the product will be nonexistant because of what you have to do to be able to use it
    If this works in the long term it could possibly replace iphones but thats a longshot, but if it does or get to the point where you get an iphone or an apple vision if you get another apple device (so both would be around the same price) all these issues could be solved and ngl issue 1 would probably be the least likely to be solved imo.

    The eyes passthrough display and the facetime "avatars" are definitely in the uncanny valley, but this thing is absolutely going to take off. This will make 3D movies a thing again, and I'm sure there will be concert experiences for every major artist soon enough, along with front row seat sports and theatre subscriptions.
    The recording of scenes through the glasses to relive later will go in some weird directions though. Like, you just know some rich old dude is going to be recording his home visits from escorts and amassing a huge collection of "experiences" for later enjoyment (or perhaps sale). It will add a whole new and horrifying dimension to the issue of revenge pr0n. The pr0n industry generally are probably going to be "pioneers" with this technology.
    They just need to fix the battery life.

    • The Ever Here Guy
      The Ever Here Guy 3 months ago +169

      @opinionated_take 6DOF means in a nutshell - 6 Degrees of freedom - Basically how the element ( also you ) moves inside a 3D space is being tracked and fully used.
      What we just saw is basically a person just sitting and doing something on a 2D flat screen just that the screen is projected in front of you through the headset. 6 DOF would be if the person would move in that space based on his headposition ( X Y axis and X, Z axis) and rotation.
      Its complicated but I hope I could clarify it to you :x

    Imagine where this is heading. A computer that not only knows what pages you visit or things you interact with but everything you look at, on a pixel level, and for how long. Couple that with AI and imagine just how accurately and accutely they could pitch adverts to you or steer your behaviour.

    Wow, that battery life is a deal breaker isn't it? Am I right in thinking that the headset has zero battery at all - you would have to put the device to sleep in order to swap out the battery? Curious to see if Apple would offer a 'power bundle' with two extra battery packs for an extra $500 - and that propriatary cable, good old Apple. Alternatively, everyone's going to be buying 20ft USB-C cables and creating trip hazards everywhere...
    ...Oh wait, the deal breaker is $3499 isn't it?

This is a lovely push in the MR/VR/AR industry! Features we see here have been wanted for the last 10 years in the VR community. Trust me, I've been in VR since the Oculus Developer Kit 1 in 2013 I was 12 at the time The future is looking sweet for this tech! I may not get Apples headset, but now companies will want to compete and bring us an equivalent experience for a cheaper price, that is the bigger picture for us consumers!

You should be happy cause this will only make other companies that do VR step up their game and make something better.

    Just watched your video and came to the part about the stereoscopic recording with the headset and how strange it would be to see someone recording a moment with it.

    The Apple Vision Pro makes the iPhone seem archaic. When I watch a video about the experience someone got in a Vision Pro demo (like this video), and then I look at my iPhone, I get very emotional because the Vision Pro might be today's iPhone. This is a moment to cherish, everyone.
    If the Vision Pro changes the world, lines such as "this is the first Apple product you look through, not at," and "you can see, hear and interact with digital content just like it's in your physical space" will all become classics.

      @Christoph Never is a very long time.
      Personally I think AR, not VR, is the future. Things overlayed onto the real world, inevitably there'll b personalised ads on communal billboards ala Minority Report etc. Once this tech shrinks over the decades to be on a contact lens, who wouldn't want that sort of overlay of maps, messages, internet search based on what you're looking at etc?

      But that's less the fault of Apple but rather a matter of context. If Apple says "the eye-tracking is novel, the best out there and the hand tracking works well", then we'd just perceive it as the sellers advertisement, whereas when Marques says it, we're inclined to believe it. And in fact it's a false dichotomy - Apple chooses who to give test-space to, so you ought to consider Marques review as part of Apple's advertising campagne just the same.

    Another con (for now, we'll see how far the devs can take this) is that while it is a seemingly stand-alone device, a lot of the features seems to be dependant on someone already being within the Apple ecosystem. Requiring an iPhone to do facial scanning (the headset has a bunch of depth sensors and an outward facing screen, it should be able to do facial scanning on its own), only working with Apple exclusive apps like Facetime and can only mirror screens from MacOS. For someone like me who doesn't own any Apple devices there's not a lot of incentive when on top of paying the $3.5k I also have to pay thousands more to switch over to using iPhone and a Macbook to really take advantage of all the features of this headset. The most I'd be able to do is simulate a movie theatre and browse the web.
    It could be very useful for privacy though. If you're stuck using public transport or in any other kind of public setting you could watch whatever content, browse whatever websites, or do data sensitive work without the fear of someone peeking at your screen. Then there's the other major problem of carrying this thing wherever you have to go. That major problem to me is the reason why I think AR stuff is not going to really take off until the glasses/goggles are almost as simple to carry around and use as regular glasses. I guess until then we'll have to get used to having this headset hanging from our neck or put it in our backpack next to the already bulky airpods max.

  • EmZeeTheTrilogy

    Feel like right now, this is the introduction to a new future. If we look at the first computers and phones, and think how big they were and then over the course of 20 years they got smaller and smaller, now imagine in 15 years time and how small these goggles will be. They are going to be expensive now, but over time they will get cheaper and cheaper and become more attractive to consumers and the masses. My thought process is that they are trying to shift us into a future where we aren't just walking around staring down at our phones, and instead looking around and seeing straight. Not just apple, other companies will start creating products like this, and in no time, they will be as cheap as phones and everyone will have one. Reality turning into Ready Player 1 for reallll.

    I’ve already seen concepts for how this headset can be used to simplify daily life. From logging visual profiles of people you meet, to on road AR directions for biking, real time translation on screen, etc. Over time as it gets cheaper and more adopted into society, this is going to be up there with how cell phones impacted society. everybody will be using it. It’s going to be more convenient and humans have always strived for easier/more convenient ways to live. With AI as a player in the game too?

  • Skadisson Deboye

    Great hands-on review or first impression video, this is the first headset i actually have a personal interest for and can see moving out of this nieche field VR is still in. For headsets to work, for me, they have to have all the setup and room restrictions removed. And this is the only headset that seems to be doing and succeeding at this removal of restrictions and setups.
    I'm not an Apple fan. And i'm a Gamer. But Apple has one big advantage here versus meta, Valve and Sony, they are not held back by Gaming. I know, hot take, but i think their push towards gaming with Apple Arcade and hadwarewise with M2 and M3 is completely missplaced, nobody wants them in the current Game Industry anyway and nobody will ever think of Apple first when it comes to classic Games. And i'm glad this headset doesn't even hide that Gaming is nowhere on it's list by not even coming with controllers. At least the classic style of Gaming seems to be completely neglected by it's design. Who knows when we will see the real VR breakthrough where Gaming itself will change thanks to new hardware and this headset with its features might become a viable way to experience and control the game.
    And why would Gaming hold back headsets? Because Gaming always needs a setup and controllers. Awkward, unintuitive things a casual user has big problems with. Casual entertainment and professional work mostly don't need complex or restrictive setups. Only some professional lab or manufacturing work requires controll devices, but they usually have way less buttons than a controller and could be controlled vritually, way better, too. And in those fields there's still Microsoft's way more practical Hololense and it's way safer AR implementation.
    I agree with your take on the high pricing. Apple is known for offensive, nasty prices but it's kind of a technological prototype, like graphics cards of a new generation always are technological prototypes that will always cost more to cover their maker's investment and give it the potential to go into massive series production with a slightly cheaper, usually more streamlined variant once it catches on. Just like graphics cards. If they started at a low point the entire life cycle of the product would be at a loss, like Nintendo's and Microsoft's gaming consoles, and they could only recoup with a completely new build, like Nintendo with it's Switch OLED.

    This feels like one of those technologies that people wont buy into because it's less comfortable than the current ones.

If we reach a point where you'll just have to wear a pair of glasses then maybe, but im more prone to believe that the future is no VR headset. We will either develop more and more sophisticated types of cellphones or some kind device that will interact directly with your eyes / brain.
