The era of spatial computing is here. Apple has revealed the Vision Pro, it’s take on the VR headset.
The Vision Pro is a standalone headset that wont have a dedicated controller. Instead, it relies entirely on voice inputs and hand/eye gestures using multiple external and internal sensors and cameras. A new feature called EyeSight uses a seamless curved display on the front of the headset so that people can see a user’s reactions while wearing the device.
It will also have the best optics that has ever been created for a VR headset. The Vision Pro uses a three-element lens with a 4K micro-OLED display for each eye. Those displays will deliver a total of 23 million pixels.
The headset will run on Apple’s visionOS, which uses a new R1 chip to process sensor data, and an M2 processor to run everything else.
The Vision Pro will go on sale early next year for $3,499 USD.
