Apple Vision Pro won’t suffer from the ill-fated collapse that 3D TVs did.
This time there’s trajectory. We know exactly where we’re headed, although emerging from the formative stages will take a while.
The bulky and cumbersome nature of this first iteration lacks aesthetic appeal, so will fail to convince the masses to splash out £3,000 on a set.
Apple knows this, but they can always depend on that sizable minority of fanboys and fangirls eager to be early adopters. Their feedback will be key for future versions.
The biggest issue, though, is these gigantic goggles look like they’d be socially unacceptable in almost any location other than the comfort of your home or a ski slope. ⛷️🏂
However, let’s be honest: we’ll all be wearing glasses in a few years, irrespective of our need to enhance visual acuity. 👓
Once they find a way of packing the next-gen tech into the rims and temples of a pair of spectacles, that’s when it’ll get exciting.
We’ll all be walking down the street gesticulating, swiping, pinching, and flapping our arms about. 😄
It’s bizarre just envisaging it, but you know it’s coming, folks!
Are you planning to snap up a Vision Pro or play the waiting game?
I, for one, will be doing the latter.
