Listen to the audio version of the article

Will virtual and augmented reality be able to recover from Zuckerberg’s disastrous Metaverse operation? The arrival of Apple’s Vision Pro says yes and the owner of Meta should buy a drink for the Cupertino company because it will give a strong boost to the entire sector. As for the product, Apple defines it as the future of spatial computing but, in essence, it is an AR/VR viewer on technological and “luxury” steroids. Its retail price in the US starts at $3,499 plus taxes (where applicable) and therefore costs almost three to more than seven times what the competition offers. There’s a reason: the device is literally chock-full of technology nestled in premium materials. This means that there is metal and that it is pleasant to hold in the hand but also that it is heavier than the others and since it has to be placed on the head, it becomes a little uncomfortable in prolonged sessions. Entering augmented reality is simple thanks to a very easy to manage guided procedure at the end of which you can see the typical icons of Apple apps floating in the air in front of us.

Delayed wow effect

Here I expected the WOW effect, but it didn’t arrive. I have been using VR and AR viewers for a long time and the passthrough effect, i.e. looking at the room from inside the Vision Pro, is better, but not so different from that of the Quest 3, the most popular AR/VR viewer “for the masses”. recent. The real WOW effect came with the dinosaurs. Yes, because as the master of user experience that it is, Apple thought well of including the one that allows you to see dinosaurs up close among the “system” apps. Here you can see the real difference: the resolution of the screens (approximately 4000×4000 pixels for each eye) is much higher than that of the competition (the aforementioned Quest 3 reaches 2064 x 2208 per eye) and this makes the dinosaur skin a marvel of details, as well as the rocks of the virtual environment in which they move. Furthermore, the M1 processor, combined with the R1 one, allows you to manage everything very smoothly. So much power requires a lot of energy and in fact the Vision Pro has a foreign battery connected via cable which we hope will disappear quickly from future versions. And this product is designed specifically for the future. Apple has planned to sell a very low number of them in the next few months and it is not even officially known when it will arrive in Europe, but it has convinced everyone that VR and AR are not dead after the metaverse disaster. The Vision Pro made those who work understand that images can be exceptional and this means a lot for those sectors where details count: retail, fashion, collaborative prototyping, hospitality and so on. More than a headset, it is a school building in which those who have not yet approached AR/VR can truly understand its potential and those who create apps can do so so that they are ready for the platforms of tomorrow.
