Apple’s Bold New Vision!

Posted on Friday, January 19th, 2024

Dave!And so Apple has unleashed their mixed reality headsets on the world.

Do I want an Apple Vision Pro? Of course I do. Am I going to pay $3,500 plus lens inserts plus AppleCare plus accessories plus tax to get one? Of course not. That being said... Apple's new video introducing the device makes it look pretty great...

And their short video about how the devices are made is very cool...

For something like this I might pay $1000 (assuming I could scrounge up $1000)... just for the ability to watch movies on a massive screen in my home, because that's cheaper than a massive TV... but everything else just feels like a gimmick to me. I dunno. Maybe if I were to go to an Apple Store so I could try it in person and see the possibilities for how I could use it I might change my mind. But, for now at least, the $5000 price of entry is too damn high.

UPDATE: And... they immediately sold out. Couldn't get one at launch if I wanted to. Thank heavens. I need to pay my mortgage.

  1. Very cool developer preview tech certainly. Dropping the (starting at) $3.5k sight unseen for something you don’t really know what you’d use it for is bananas. Seeing tech folks with a lot of disposable income showing screenshots of their pre-orders was eye opening.

      The rumors are that there’s a cheaper version in development for mass market (no surprise there) but it will have to sacrifice a bunch of the things that make the Vision Pro so compelling. And it’s like… who wants that? They could just buy a Meta headset. This kind of tech is very new (despite being old in tech years) and it’s exciting to think about where it’s going. But right now? It just looks like a pricey gimmick.
