As Apple gears up for the imminent release of its groundbreaking mixed reality headset, the Vision Pro, the tech giant has unveiled an enticing advertisement, providing a sneak peek into the device’s exceptional features. Titled “Hello Apple Vision Pro,” the ad, posted on YouTube, has already garnered half a million views within just half a day.

The promotional video offers a brief showcase of the Vision Pro’s standout capabilities, emphasizing its eye-tracking technology, hand-tracking without the need for traditional controllers, and the remarkable ability to project the wearer’s eyes onto an external screen.

A Glimpse into the Future: Vision Pro Features

Scheduled to hit the shelves on February 2, the Apple Vision Pro boasts cutting-edge technology that is set to revolutionize the mixed reality headset market. Notably, the device supports eye-tracking and hand-tracking, providing an immersive experience without the constraints of conventional controllers. One striking feature highlighted in the ad is the projection of the user’s eyes onto an external screen, showcasing the device’s innovation.

High-Tech Comes at a Price

While the Vision Pro promises an unparalleled XR (mixed reality) experience, it comes with a hefty price tag. Apple has commenced pre-orders for the headset, with the 256GB variant priced at $3,499. For those seeking higher storage capacity, the 512GB and 1TB models are available at $3,699 and $3,899, respectively. Additionally, optional accessories, such as ZEISS Optical Inserts – Readers for $99 and ZEISS Optical Inserts – Prescription for $149, provide users with customization options.

Competition on the Horizon

As Apple prepares to make waves in the mixed reality space, Samsung is gearing up to enter the arena with its own XR headset. While the Korean tech giant teased the development of a new XR headset at major Galaxy Unpacked events in 2023, no further details were revealed at Unpacked 2024. The competition between these tech giants is poised to drive innovation and redefine the future of mixed reality experiences.
