Engadget reviews Apple Vision Pro: ‘It’s magical, almost telepathic’

Friday February 9, 2024. 03:09 PM , from Mac Daily News
Apple Vision Pro features a pair of advanced, custom micro‑OLED displays deliver more pixels than a 4K TV to each eye — for stunning clarity.
Apple Vision Pro is a spatial computer powered by visionOS, which is built on the foundation of decades of engineering innovation in macOS, iOS, and iPadOS. visionOS delivers powerful spatial experiences, unlocking new opportunities at work and at home. Featuring a brand-new three-dimensional user interface and input system controlled entirely by a user’s eyes, hands, and voice, navigation feels magical. Intuitive gestures allow users to interact with apps by simply looking at them, tapping their fingers to select, flicking their wrist to scroll, or using a virtual keyboard or dictation to type. With Siri, users can quickly open or close apps, play media, and more.
Devindra Hardawar for Engadget:

It’s magical, almost telepathic. The Vision Pro’s eye tracking makes it feel like you’re discovering the power of the Force, a sensation that’s buoyed by the intuitive hand gestures used to interact with whatever your eyes are focused on. But by relying so much on your gaze, the Vision Pro can quickly become exhausting when you run into issues, like trying to hit a tiny button on YouTube’s visually overstuffed website. The eye strain is real.
That’s pretty much the Vision Pro experience in a nutshell. Wonder and frustration. A peek into the future that’s limited by the hardware that exists today — even if that hardware is among the best we’ve ever seen.
This is just the beginning of Apple’s spatial computing journey. Like the iPod and iPhone before it, the Vision Pro has the potential to fundamentally reshape the way we live with technology.
That future is likely years away, assuming Apple manages to deliver a cheaper and lighter headset. But it’s fascinating to see the company set off an entirely new direction of computing, without knowing exactly where it’s headed.
