Apple Vision Pro is a groundbreaking spatial computing device that flawlessly integrates digital content with the real world, while enabling users to remain in the moment and maintain connections with others. It provides an unlimited workspace for applications that extends beyond the limits of conventional displays and presents a fully three-dimensional user interface controlled by the most intuitive inputs – the user’s gaze, gestures, and speech. Powered by visionOS, the first spatial operating system in the world, the Vision Pro allows users to engage with digital content as if it physically coexists in their environment.
The innovative design of the Vision Pro incorporates an ultra-high-resolution display system, with two screens containing a total of 23 million pixels, and proprietary Apple silicon in a distinctive dual-chip setup to ensure that every interaction feels real-time and immediate, as if it’s happening right before the user’s eyes.

However, opinions from those who have tried it appear mixed, let’s analyze some of them.

Summarizing what wrote:

Apple Vision Pro appear as impressive as it sounds. The visuals from the interface and various applications are so exceptional that Apple showcased them straight from the device in its keynote. The interface is vibrant and pronounced, creating a sense of real presence due to its interaction with other windows, ability to cast shadows, and response to different lighting conditions.
At this stage, however, I’m reluctant to make any sweeping statements about whether the Apple Vision Pro will live up to Apple’s assertions about ushering in the era of spatial computing. My time with it has been too brief, and it isn’t yet a finished product—Apple is still refining aspects such as the light shroud and certainly numerous software features.
That being said, it’s truly a superbly executed product. It represents the ideal form of an XR headset. Now, all we can do is wait and see what Apple and developers can achieve in the forthcoming months, as well as gauge the public’s reaction.

Of a different opinion is the popular tech portal

I’M NOT A gambler, but I’d bet everything that Apple’s Vision Pro will flop.
When the $3,499 mixed-reality headset goes on sale in 2024, no doubt diehard Apple enthusiasts and VR/AR hobbyists will bring their sleeping bags and line up outside the Apple Store doors, hooting and hollering and having a ball. Maybe some gamers will get on board.
But the rest of us? No. Absolutely not. Don’t be ridiculous. This is not a “revolutionary” gadget, no matter how confident Tim Cook looks when he says it is. It’s a rare misfire, and a sign that Apple is losing its ability to turn tech-geek novelties into normie must-haves. It doesn’t augur the future so much as suggest that Cupertino doesn’t have a clear view forward.

On you can also read Mark Zuckerberg’s opinion about the introduction of this device, of which this excerpt is particularly significant:

From what I’ve seen initially, I’d say the good news is that there’s no kind of magical solutions that they have to any of the constraints on laws of physics that our teams haven’t already explored and thought of. They went with a higher resolution display, and between that and all the technology they put in there to power it, it costs seven times more and now requires so much energy that now you need a battery and a wire attached to it to use it. They made that design trade-off and it might make sense for the cases that they’re going for.

But look, I think that their announcement really showcases the difference in the values and the vision that our companies bring to this in a way that I think is really important. We innovate to make sure that our products are as accessible and affordable to everyone as possible, and that is a core part of what we do. And we have sold tens of millions of Quests.

As can be seen, opinions about the Apple Vision Pro are quite divergent, with some considering it the gadget of the future, while others do not yet consider it mature enough for such a name. What do you guys think about it? Feel free to leave your opinion in the comments.
