Apple Vision Pro Announced

Apple recently unveiled its augmented reality headset, the Apple Vision Pro. After showing the potential use cases for the device, the company said a bit more about the technical specifications.

From an article in Tech Crunch by Romain Dillet.

From the outside, the Apple Vision Pro looks a bit like ski goggles. On the front of the device, Apple is using three-dimensionally formed laminated glass. The glass flows into the frame, a bit like the Apple Watch.

There’s a digital crown on the top of the device that you can use for adjustments. The main body of the device is made of a custom aluminum alloy with some holes for ventilation. There are a ton of chips, sensors and displays in the device.

The rest of the device is a modular system. You can swap the part that rests on your face so that it rests well on your face whether you have a big head or a small head.

At the back of the device, there is a flexible headband that attaches magnetically so that it can also be easily swapped. It looks a bit like the Alpine Loop on the Apple Watch Ultra.

On the side of the device, there are two speakers next to your ears that deliver spatial audio. Apple has developed a technology called audio raytracing for spatial audio.

Overall, there are 12 cameras, five sensors and six microphones. On the outside, there are two cameras pointing at the real world, and two cameras pointing downward to track your hands. There’s a lidar scanner and a TrueDepth camera.
