Before trying it— Vision Pro seems much improved over earlier VR like Vive, but feels like niche use cases rather than daily productivity.
Focused on productivity over gaming, with iOS apps available. I don’t buy this yet. For comparison, AirPods Max are enough friction to don / doff that I sometimes just use the crappy built-in speaker on the Mac mini—let alone something significantly heavier which covers my eyes too.
I’m skeptical people will strap this to their face for half a day. I could see using this for specific, relatively short purposes.
Eye tracking is faster than a trackpad, famously used in fighter jets.
Gesture tracking seems like it would be much less reliable than tapping a trackpad, but is more natural than controllers.
Higher res gives you much nicer video pass-through, which makes it more convenient to leave the headset on, and less likely to have people sneak up on you.
Nicer materials, Apple-style, at the cost of excess weight, again Apple-style.
Travel: portable IMAX, nicer experience. But not more portable than a laptop and AirPods.
Warby / Zenni knocked out most of the optometrist racket, except for the eye exam cartel. Cut my cost for reasonably stylish glasses by 90%.
The Vision Pro prescription lenses cost more than my entire pair of glasses, including lenses and frame.
