After a rather long wait, Apple’s debut mixed reality headset — its first new device since the Apple Watch — is almost here. Vision Pro launches on February 2nd, and to make sure it’s as good for demos as it is for real life, you should. spend more than an hour playing.
according to BloombergAccording to Mark Gurman, customers requesting a demo will have to go through facial scans and assembly of the custom Vision Pro before being introduced to the interface, controls and device calibration. Apple Store employees will even scan glasses to find lens prescriptions for Vision Pro. All of this may well burn out any intrigue and excitement for the headset, but at least you’ll get a meaty 25-minute demo.
If you’re planning to buy a Vision Pro in the store without trying it, maverick, you’ll still have to go through face scans. However, you can jump through the rest of the hoops by the time you get home.
