Apple introduced its first-ever augmented reality headset, the ‘Vision Pro,’ at WWDC, the company’s first big product release in eight years. The Vision Pro is an AR (augmented reality) headgear that looks like ski goggles and effortlessly interacts with your natural environment, displaying an interface comparable to an iPhone in your ambient space. The Apple Vision Pro AR headset does everything an iPhone does, including watching movies, programmes, playing games, accessing apps, and making FaceTime calls.
The Vision Pro headset introduces what Apple refers to as “spatial computing.” The headset can also take images and films, and it is outfitted with several cameras and LiDar sensors to bring technology into your life. Let’s have a look at what this innovative new product has to offer.
Apple Vision Pro price, availability
The Apple Vision Pro costs $3,499, which is around Rs 2,89,000. The augmented reality headset will be available for purchase on Apple.com and in Apple Stores early next year. It will first be offered in the United States, with additional countries on the way. There is no indication of whether the Apple Vision Pro would be available in India.
Apple Vision Pro design
The Apple Vision Pro has two high-resolution displays, laminated glass, and an aluminium frame. It also includes an adjustable headband and flexible straps. It has a total of 12 cameras, including TrueDepth cameras, IR cameras, and a LiDAR Scanner. There’s also a button for taking spatial images and films with the headset, as well as an Apple Watch-style Digital Crown for adjusting the immersive display and more.
Apple has also teamed with Zeiss to provide glasses-wearing customers with lenses that will be linked to the headset. The Apple Vision Pro also has an extra battery that plugs into the headset and can be kept in your pocket when not in use. There is no remote control for the headgear, which depends on vocal instructions, hand gestures, and even your vision. Siri, as expected, is also available with the Vision Pro.
Apple Vision Pro features
The Apple Vision Pro includes a number of functions that allow you to experience immersive video on the fly while also exploiting your surroundings. So you’re not only watching and accessing stuff, but also experiencing an immersive experience. The Vision Pro blends the information you’re watching with your surroundings by changing the colour, dimming the lights, and even projecting the movie or show’s background.
All of the content on the Vision Pro can be moved and expanded as you see fit. As a result, you can fill the entire room with the movie or place many apps side by side. The Vision Pro also includes Spatial Audio, which provides a surround sound experience when watching films.
Apple also highlighted that, while the Vision Pro provides an immersive experience, you are not cut off from the outside world or the people around you. If you’re using the headset and someone walks by, Vision Pro will notify you and even make your eyes visible so they can see you.
Apple Vision Pro Specifications
For performance, Apple’s AR headset is powered by the company’s own M2 chipset. It also includes a new chipset known as the ‘R1’. For rapid and high-quality content, this chipset processes input from the 12 cameras, five cameras, and three microphones. According to Apple, the R1 chip reduces lag during the process. On the software front, Vision Pro runs a new visionOS that has been customised specifically for the headset. And, like any other Apple gadget, this one joins the ecosystem, bringing data and content from all of your other Vision Pro-enabled devices.
Optic ID is also used by the Apple Vision Pro to unlock the headset, make App Store purchases, and use Apple Pay. The AR headset also develops your digital character by mapping your face and incorporating pre-scanned data for this digital avatar that will be utilised while engaging with others.
The Vision Pro is without a doubt Apple’s most important innovation in years, as well as one of the most groundbreaking devices in general. The wait for the Vision Pro to go commercial is long, but it will be interesting to see how Apple handles this huge step.
