Apple finally revealed its much-rumored Vision Pro augmented reality (AR) headset yesterday at its annual WWDC 2023 conference. The Vision Pro has been in development for years, and it finally appears to have enough cutting-edge features to justify its exorbitant price tag.
However, the announcement was about much more than hardware. Apple also introduced its brand-new visionOS operating system and a host of compatible apps alongside the Vision Pro.
Incredibly impressive demonstrations were presented at the event. The headset looks like other virtual reality gear, but it has that certain Apple flavor. While it’s true that Apple’s hardware isn’t cutting-edge, the quality of its software and user interface is up for much more discussion.
Drawing on the new Vision Pro Headset was demonstrated by Twitter user @BenGeskin. A video showed how to use the Augmented Reality headset and how to draw with motions and eye instructions. The process as a whole was, to say the least, astounding.
There appears to be a clarification in the video for the previously unanswered question of response accuracy and precision. Apple undoubtedly completed the task “its own way“. The device’s eye tracking capability allows the user to simultaneously draw with his hands and move the pointer on the screen with his eyes. Although it may appear complex, its use is actually rather easy.
Using the Apple Vision Pro Might be a Problem
However, without controls, the need to constantly use your hands to move and create objects becomes a huge obstacle. Your arms may get tired and uncomfortable from the extra effort you put in. Despite their fumbling appearance, controllers are crucial to making the process smoother and easier for end users.
Since neither the public nor reviewers have access to the product just yet, all conclusions made are purely hypothetical. Reviews from those who have had the chance to use the gadget firsthand are likely to appear soon after Apple makes it available to the public. If there are any updates, we will be sure to share them with you.
