Apple’s new Vision Pro headset mixes virtual worlds with our real world
By: Letian Zou
Imagine if virtual worlds in video games came to life. Apple has released a new high-tech headset which has made this possible.
This newly introduced Vision Pro headset is a combination of a virtual reality (VR) headset and an augmented reality (AR) headset. The headset has shocking features. It can act as a huge movie screen, which can appear anytime in any space. It also allows users to play games as if they are in the game. Unlike VR headsets, users can still see the real world so there is no worry of crashing into walls while playing VR games through Apple’s new product.
In an interview with Apple’s CEO Tim Cook, Cook said, “Blending digital content with the real world can unlock experiences like nothing we’ve ever seen. Just as the Mac introduced us to personal computing, and iPhone introduced us to mobile computing, Apple Vision Pro introduces us to spatial computing. Built upon decades of Apple innovation, Vision Pro is years ahead and unlike anything created before.”
Despite having such a big project released, Apple has also released more updates and features like a new screen distance feature that sends an alert when a user is too close to their device. They also released a daylight sensor that will measure how much time an Apple Watch wearer spends outside.
