I heard something about a new #AR #VR #headset and I don't see the appeal (via Flickr) https://www.flickr.com/photos/59195512@N00/127177266/in/photolist-cePnu-dEPAC-5PyWzP-6U5ovk-2PHSb3-7B4nVN-7xmPdW-7ck6Wu-azeLWR-3Wq1yy-4sSbBz-4HW1i-2j742dD-2jnCeF8-9N7EeB-cHTqwW-2nLoKmB-rANKZ-bXgEY-2b3JGec-CzRiPM-a9txNe-265SCan-L2SaBG-2mG16k2-2nAWBrZ-2n3MdAJ-8MDMcu-297uXf-3Kq4Et-7Xfe65-8q3isc-nsXaJA-qunuSd-2gnjpDy-de9YFg-AFXDk-53CANY-ivYAV-216aK7U-oLLUk6-3eA8wE-4EAE8r-61VZtw-cm86f-3oYHHW-9cdPPv-9DafNq-iQAxR-8BqDjD
My take on the apple headset: https://amini-allight.org/post/thoughts-on-the-vision-pro #vr
So watching the #VisionPro video... I’m seeing a lot of flats hovering in space, and almost no actual 3D. The game they showed, it’s just a 2D game screen mapped onto a 3D flat.
At this stage, I’m calling bullshit on this as being a real full-fat #VR / #AR / #XR capable device like a Vive / Varjo / UltraLeap etc. Show me a demo of #OpenBrush, or Half Life Alyx - show me this maintaining 90fps in a wholly 3D environment with 3D activities, cause I don’t think it can do it.

Seriously, how much new consumer tech in the past 15 years has made an impact beyond “neat, but no widely applicable use-case”?
There have been plenty of incremental improvements, but most new paradigms (especially the ones touted as world-changing) have amounted to nothing.
#VR? High-end gaming device. Crypto? Unfit for any real use. NFTs? Pointless from jump. Metaverse? Already dead. Generative #AI? I guess we’ll see, but my bet is the current approach plateaus faster than we expect.
Time to rewatch Swan Song. #WWDC2023 #AppleVisionPro #AR #VR
I see people are sharing their #VR takes again. Mine is:
All the comparisons between VR and 3D movies were pretty much spot on, and that's okay. I like 3D movies! Things are allowed to be fun in small doses without completely overturning the status quo.
Apple's new VR headset is a super amazing piece of modern tech. However, it is also a great solution for a missing problem.
Really, what does it solve or improve?
#WWDC Apple's newly introduced #AR and #VR Headset titled “Apple Vision Pro” seems to be the most technologically advanced, ultimately over engineered, solution in dire quest of a matching problem.
Did I miss something or did Apple not show any killer-application that catapults the want-factor to infinity and beyond imagination?
What is Apple's *vision* for this Pro priced device? If there is any, I certainly failed to recognize it in their presentation.
The same post, but as an image:
Apple certainly know how to market a product and it looks very impressive the new Vision Pro... but, ignoring the expensive nature of the product for a moment...
There are some really bold claims made here and how that actually translates to real world use remains to be seen.
One thing though, just like 3D televisions, I don't want to wear anything to watch a film. Yes it could be very immersive, but no thank you.
For 3,500 clams, it better have a talking moose…
#XR #MR #VR
And just so this thread is discoverable, here's hashtag soup: #Apple #WWDC #VR #AR #VirtualReality #VisionPro #VisionOS
And by “justify the expense”, I see at least two classes of customers.
* Those who need a lot of monitor real-estate.
If this can truly create a virtual array of big 4k monitors, the $3,500 price is a bargain. (Just two Studio Displays are $3,200.)
* People who have enough disposable income to just “pick one up” for watching movies on an airplane.
That level of sales is all Apple is expecting.
Two things about Apple’s Vision Pro headset.
1) It's not aimed at the Meta Quest market.
That $3,500 price tag means it's intended for uses that can justify the expense, and that it's the first step on a path to actual consumer Apple AR/VR headsets.
2) The original Mac sold for $2,500, which is around $7,000 in today’s dollars.
Those also were a high-end product with limited market.
(The market for Mac computers grew somewhat in the subsequent years.) :-)
@flargh Remember when the Apple media world got all hot & bothered over Apple hiring a guy whose #VR “achievement” was a painting app, where you painted on a flat canvas *in a 3D environment* - completely missing the point. Actual VR painting was about painting 3 dimensional forms. I get the impression what Apple is pushing is flat screen computing, but floating in space, not an actual 3D workspace of volumetric objects.
Even with all of #Apple’s design prowess and effectively limitless budget, they haven’t figured out a way to make #VR goggles look non-clunky. 🤓 #AppleVisionPro #WWDC2013
After passing the exam from the previous post, I took a little bit of a break from things and found myself in VRChat with @BonesCollie. #furality was a lot of fun. For it being a fraction of the price of an actual IRL convention, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The setlists were great, the people were fun, the art was nice to see. All good.
What I thought was cool is there's a section for "Other" in the vendor hall which is more like an IRL Dealer's Den area.
It's disappointing that #DisneyPlus hasn't done an app for other #VR headsets. Being able to watch 3D versions of movies on a VR Disney+ app would keep me as a subscriber.
Hopefully the work #Disney puts into whatever they do for #VisionPro will materialize elsewhere.
I understand Apple has released a new product, which, like many Apple products over the years, is ludicrously overpriced
here on tusker, 100s of people, heck, maybe 1000s, are making fun of this product
I bet every single one of the critics hurling jabs at Apple is a fan in a few years, when ver 3 or 4 comes out

Apple Has a Vision, and it's Pro
I’m going to get the Vision Pro out of the way first, because besides being at least a year out, $3499 and requiring lens inserts (which will very likely not be available for my specific case), it’s not something that’s going to matter to me for a long while.(...)

I'm glad this is getting some people's gears turning about #VR and #AR implementations, but it is funny to watch them propose ideas for software that... already exist for VR, and have for years. The only difference is on some headsets you can't see your living room while doing it. #VisionPro #WWDC

What does the Fox say?
#Apple just walked into the #VR market with the #VisionPro, acted like they invented VR and #AR, didn't actually CALL it VR, and then immediately folded and yielded to the #OculusQuest. This is hilarious.
My #VisionPro thoughts that nobody asked for but that I am nonetheless compelled to shout into the void.
I got an HTC Vive in 2016 and an updated Vive XR Elite just this year. I've played with VR a bunch and have Thoughts.
In no particular order 🧵:
@esdin This pricetag suprasses majority of pro segment of VR...
And advertisement was like, it was cheap and affordable piece of tech for daily use. And eye display? this one is the first thing that apple could cut off and do not lose any usability.
However, zucc look, at this presentation! many users would love to have more android 2d apps! Zucc, you know that to do! #vr
I am definitely staying with a #MetaQuestVR Will upgrade to the #Quest3 though. For productivity #ImmersedVR is still the best out there, and for watching my movie collection #SkyBoxVR.
The Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and YouTube apps also work, but they definitely need an update.
Not moving towards the #Apple #VisionPro at all. The device looks cool, the 2D with AR portion looks great, but 3D content seems lacking, and the price is way up there as expected.
Of course, this is a v1! There have been plenty of v1 Apple products that I found uninteresting, but couldn't live without once v2 or v3 came around.
I'll be keeping an eye out for the future of Vision Pro… but I'll also start thinking about upgrading to a Meta Quest 3.
#Apple #WWDC23 #WWDC #VisionPro #Oculus #MetaQuest #VR #AR
I just finished watching Apple's announcement of the new Vision Pro.
I’ve had my Meta Quest 2 (aka Oculus) for nearly a year now, and I use it nearly every day.
My takeaway: I am not the target audience for the Vision Pro. None of the things I like about the Meta Quest were included, and of all of the things that were included, none interested me at all.
#Apple #WWDC23 #WWDC #VisionPro #MetaQuest #Oculus #VR #AR
I wasn’t too sure about Apple Vision Pro, until audio ray tracing. I truly believe this device will have uses for people who are totally blind. So many implementations for accessibility wizzing around in my head.
Carrying on with my play through Red Matter 2.
Vision Pro is a cool concept, but $3499 basically makes it DOA for widespread consumer adoption. I could definitely see it establishing a niche with design/CAD that allows it to eventually drop to the $1999 price point where it has a prayer of catching on more widely.
Fuck it, I'll install NixOS on every machine at this grammar school.

I wouldn't mind overpaying for those landfilling airpods as long as they are from Apple.

🥸 Meta Employees Are Selling the Metaverse, But Not Working In it
"Employees across the organization generally aren't using the headsets -- especially not for work meetings, according to 11 current and former employees. Even those in the VR part of the organization don't use it regularly for work"
#Metaverse #VR #Zuckerberg
AR/VR/XR folks are so desperate for some success to validate all of their work that they are pinning their hopes on Apple's upcoming device.
At any point has anyone come up with a valid general-purpose use-case for this type of gear?
Rumors for Apple’s #VR are that #RealityOS will interplay nicely with IPad OS which then might (optimistic layman speaking) mean that stuff like the “phone” version of #VRChat could slot into Reality OS using the power or the headset’s rumored M2 chips.
So long as they don’t leverage that to do something stupidly capitalist like blocking themselves out of SteamVR for those who have a nice PC setup already, this could be really cool!
Geeking out about #VR again: The Quest 3 got revealed a few days ago and it’s looking pretty good!
But due to how a lot of it had been leaked already and Apple’s thing being just around the corner that’s genuinely where most of my (and a lot of nerd’s) hype is at. I’m relatively deep into their ecosystem and if they come out swinging into the space by using M2 chips to deliver PCVR level performance on a headset… Honestly I might just save up for that.
Started working on the edit mode tools. Been playing around with stuff for the last few hours, hoping to get a properties inspector in tomorrow so that you can click on an object and edit it's properties. This is just placeholder stuff to get some progress on the idea that we're shooting for with the tools.

Whether the AR/VR goggles/headset winds up being $2499 or $24.99, I don’t care.
No interest. Ape could pay me a million dollars to get one and still no interest.
Hoping the headset fails. Hoping the 3D holographic projections depicted in so many scifi movies prevails instead.

Goggles: closed, private, tyrrany, slavery, doom, destruction.
Congratulations on the PR.
Current and ex-employees: #Meta staff generally aren't using the #Quest 3, especially for meetings, and even those in the #VR unit don't use it regularly for work.
Neal Stephenson, whose 1992 novel Snow Crash brought the term metaverse to the world, is optimistic about XR thanks to better tooling. But even with Apple getting involved, it's a hard sell.
Monday, we'll see Apple's take on a classic problem:
How do you sell something that people watching can't themselves experience directly?
Like selling new TV technology to people watching commercials on old TV technology, it requires a leap of faith.
How will Apple bring VR to life for us? How will they convey the cool? 🤔
We'll see on Monday!

@Edent @adrianhon this was absolutely my problem... Huge Vive supporter, and loved some of the #vr experiences I had on it (Alyx is absolutely seminal) but the friction to use it around my flat is just *such a faff* that it barely comes out. Though still hoping for a light, high res headset with full pass through to get me excited again.

Hello! This is long overdue but it's here now ✨
I'm Tara! Nice to meet you 👋 I'm in my 20s, go by any/all pronouns, and I've got a lot of adjectives in my bio ^^;
I live on Terf Island, and spend most of my days researching ways to make computers take actions to behave in measurably cool ways, without human data 🤖 Computers are cool. Stats is cool. Put them together and it's like magic!
In my spare time I like to indulge in lots of fiction in media & games and such - especially #SciFi! Some of my favourite things include #StarWars, #StarCitizen, #Hololive, #Poetry, and #Music. Also #VR is great when I make the time.
Let's talk values: I care a lot about people, community, and life of all kinds. I hold that a basic love is held for all, regardless of their actions or character 💚 I want a better life for all of us, and I refuse to exclude anyone from this sentiment 🏴🚩
If you have read this far it's clear
I owe you gratitude:
You cared to read all of this through!
I care about you too 💛 :P
Y'all I need help.

I interviewed Jim Green, who has recently retired as Chief Scientist at #NASA after 42 years for our blog at ISAS #JAXA.
When I asked Jim how space science had changed over his career, I expected him to talk about Mars. Instead, he told me about the “disruptive technology” from the internet to #VR that revolutionised the way people worked together to change absolutely everything.
It was an amazing story, and I'm super proud of the piece!

@Mina I've been waiting for #cgi #porn to come along as a concept since the 90s, and I'm surprised that it hasn't happened more quickly. I think that the current 5 movies a day with 2 or 3 cheap cameras shooting schedule is much cheaper. The consumers don't care about writing, sadly.
Where it should change is with #VR immersive "write the non player characters on the fly" porn which is probably on the verge of happening at the high end of the market now. But the mass market is still cheap crap.
