The new Apple VR headset was unveiled and it’s become meme fodder for the internet.
Arguably the most hyped reveal from the conference was of the Vision Pro, one of the first new products from Apple in the last few years.
The AR/VR headset was one of the expected releases at WWDC 2023, and it’s being called a magical new experience.
According to a release from Apple, the Vision Pro is “a revolutionary spatial computer that seamlessly blends digital content with the physical world while allowing users to stay present and connected to others” and will operate by using your eyes, hands, and voice.
The breakthrough device comes with an ultra-high-resolution display system that packs 23 million pixels across two displays. Its price starts at US$3,499 and will be available early next year.
People can’t stop meme-ing the new Apple product.
