Apple unveiled its first mixed reality glasses "Vision Pro", allowing the user to immerse themselves in virtual reality as an alternative to the real world, and Apple says that its glasses are competitive due to their own features.
During its annual global developers conference, the American company announced the Vision Pro glasses, which came after years of speculation and leaks until some thought that Apple would not venture into this field.
The Vision Pro glasses have several features, most notably that they can be controlled through hand gesture, eye movement or voice commands, and are equipped with a rotating button that enables the user to move between real, virtual and augmented reality as desired, although this will cost the user a high price of $ 3500,<>.
The Vision Pro has an attractive and elegant design with a polished glass front wrapped in an aluminum frame, and comes with 5 sensors to measure the environment in 12D, in addition to 6 cameras, <> microphones and a screen for each eye.
For those who wear eyeglasses, Apple, in collaboration with a German optical company, has created separate lenses that are magnetically glued to the bezel of the two screens.
The glasses work with its own operating system that allows the user to browse applications easily, and supports external accessories via Bluetooth, making it easier to use the computer. It also draws its power from an external battery wired to it that lasts only two hours and can fit in a pocket.
Despite stressing its keenness not to isolate the user completely from the world around him, Apple wants the person to use its Vision Pro glasses in almost everything, to accomplish work on a set of huge digital screens that the user sees only, and will support many different entertainment activities such as watching movies, playing video games and displaying personal media in three dimensions.
The crucial feature of the glasses is that the applications that a person uses daily can be used in other Apple devices such as iPhone and Mac, such as FaceTime, Safari and others. Apple will make some changes to those applications, and invited developers around the world to do so by providing them with special tools, which means that the glasses will have their own version of the App Store.
The glasses will go on sale at the end of next year, according to Apple, which justified the high price of the glasses by its ability to compete with features that no other glasses have ever seen in the market.
