Apple unveils groundbreaking spacial computer called Apple Vision Pro

Apple has launched Apple Vision Pro, a groundbreaking device that seamlessly integrates digital content with the physical world, while keeping users connected and present.

This spatial computer features a fully three-dimensional user interface controlled by natural inputs such as your eyes, hands, and voice.

With the world’s first spatial operating system, visionOS, Vision Pro allows users to interact with digital content as if it were physically present.

The device, which looks similar to ski goggles, includes an ultra-high-resolution display system with 23 million pixels across two displays and custom Apple silicon for real-time experiences.

Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook said the launch of Apple Vision Pro marked the start of “a new era for computing”.

“Just as the Mac introduced us to personal computing, and iPhone introduced us to mobile computing, Apple Vision Pro introduces us to spatial computing,” he said.

“Built upon decades of Apple innovation, Vision Pro is years ahead and unlike anything created before — with a revolutionary new input system and thousands of groundbreaking innovations.

“It unlocks incredible experiences for our users and exciting new opportunities for our developers.”

Apple Vision Pro offers extraordinary experiences across various domains.

The visionOS provides a three-dimensional interface, liberating apps from display boundaries. Users can be more productive with infinite screen real estate, access favourite apps, and multitask.

The device supports Magic Keyboard and Magic Trackpad, enabling the integration of Mac capabilities into Vision Pro, creating a private, portable 4K display.

In terms of entertainment, Vision Pro transforms any space into a personal movie theatre with its ultra-high-resolution displays and advanced Spatial Audio system.

Users can enjoy movies, TV shows, and three-dimensional videos.

Apple Immersive Video provides 180-degree high-resolution recordings with Spatial Audio.

Gaming experiences are taken to new levels with spatial computing, and Apple Arcade games can be played on a large screen with immersive audio.

Vision Pro introduces “Environments” that expand users’ worlds beyond physical rooms, offering dynamic landscapes for focus or clutter reduction.

The Digital Crown allows users to control their level of immersion in these environments.

Apple Technology Development Group Vice President Mike Rockwell said the device set a new standard in personal electronics.

“Creating our first spatial computer required invention across nearly every facet of the system,” he said.

“Through a tight integration of hardware and software, we designed a standalone spatial computer in a compact wearable form factor that is the most advanced personal electronics device ever.”

With Apple’s first three-dimensional camera, Vision Pro captures memories and offers spatial audio, immersing users in their favourite moments.

Users can access their entire photo library on iCloud, viewing photos and videos at a life-size scale with vivid colours and exceptional detail. FaceTime calls become spatial experiences, reflecting participants’ life-size tiles and utilising Spatial Audio.

Users wearing Vision Pro are represented as digital avatars, reflecting their facial expressions and hand movements.

Vision Pro features an all-new App Store, offering familiar iPhone and iPad apps that automatically adapt to the new input system.

Developers can leverage Vision Pro’s capabilities and visionOS to create innovative app experiences.

The visionOS, built on Apple’s engineering innovation, delivers powerful spatial experiences.

The three-dimensional interface integrates digital content into the physical world, dynamically responding to natural light and shadows. An entirely new input system responds to a user’s eyes, hands, and voice, enabling intuitive navigation.

EyeSight, an innovative feature, enhances user connections.

When someone approaches a Vision Pro user, the device feels transparent, allowing the user to see them while displaying their eyes.

EyeSight provides visual cues to others about the user’s focus.

The device’s design combines advanced materials for optimal performance.

It features a three-dimensionally formed and laminated glass lens, custom aluminium alloy frame, and a modular system for a tailored fit. Flexible straps and a three-dimensionally knitted Head Band provide comfort and breathability.

Vision Pro delivers exceptional hardware innovation, featuring an ultra-high-resolution display system with micro-OLED technology, advanced audio with personalised Spatial Audio, and a high-performance eye tracking system.

The device is powered by Apple silicon in a unique dual-chip design, ensuring unparalleled performance.

Privacy and security are fundamental aspects of Vision Pro.

The device features Optic ID, a secure authentication system that analyses the user’s iris without storing data on Apple servers. Eye tracking information is not shared with Apple or third-party apps.

Apple Vision Pro will be available for US$3499 (AUD $5291) early next year on and in Apple Store locations in the US, with international availability coming later in the year.
