    The tech itself is cool I can’t lie. That is what is in all the sci fi of modern day. Nobody will use it regularly until what you have to wear is indistinguishable from regular accessories.

      Same thought. I don’t really care much about the AR aspects of VR googles. I feel like I can see why people might game in them, etc, but for AR stuff I don’t really get the appeal. I did recently see a walkthrough of how to use and the features of the Apple Vision Pro and I can’t deny, the tech itself is really cool, I was pretty excited seeing the walkthrough. I just don’t really care about the applications of that tech yet.

        I get the sense XR headsets are more for corporate and military/police customers.

          Yea and even then pass through AR sucks for those use cases. I worked in the industry for a bit and every client always wanted transparent displays because that human face to face connection was way too important to forgo.

        Interesting. I see it the other way around and believe it’s only AR that’ll be a real benefit (once it lasts indefinitely and is tiny or even implanted some time in the future). Pulling out your phone to navigate somewhere is cumbersome, for example.

          Sure, but in its current goggle form, I’m probably not gonna do that. I’m more okay wearing goggles by myself to game in, than walk around with goggles to interact with virtual stuff in a real environment. I’m a huge SciFi fan, and I see the potential for the future tech, just not there right now. Still doesn’t make the current iteration any less impressive, the tech inside the apple vision pro and the programming making it all work is extremely impressive to me.

        Here AR is a push to normalize VR in different settings where you need to pay attention to what’s outside your googles. Even in social ones - that’s why they tried these eyes on the surface. I’m sceptical some would wear them daily while doing chores, but I was also sceptical about people casually talking to their BT airpods on the street.

          Bluetooth headsets have existed for eons at this point. People walking around with airpods isn’t really that much of a step.

            Yes, and I used one. But in Nokia days it was mostly work related. You didn’t usually stumble upon that many persons talking to air in public. Now writing voice messages and chatting via headset is way more normalised.

      and millions will agree with that at first.

      if you’re young and sexually available, then yes thats a big factor. if you’re settled down, in a comitted relationship, thats way down the list. i’d rather look nerdy while in a monet lazy river of wizard productivity than looking hawt while left behind in gotham.
