The Apple Vision Pro augmented reality glassesThey have not left anyone indifferent. In general they have impressed, but they have not liked everyone. Elon Musk He has given his opinion, true to his style. With a meme that will bring controversy, since compares them to getting high on hallucinogenic mushrooms.
Apple introduced its Vision Pro virtual/augmented reality glasses a few days ago. But don’t you ever utter the words “virtual reality” either “augmented reality” in the presence of an Apple executive, as he will get very angry. They did not hear each other once in the presentation, even though they are exactly that.
putting aside the excessive and unattainable price of 3,500 dollars (here we will have to add VAT, which gives us a stomach ache to calculate), the Vision Pro have impressed the press and experts with their concept and possibilities. Although not to all.
Elon Musk doesn’t like the Vision Pro
Just yesterday Mark Zuckerberg’s opinion about Apple glasses was leaked. He assures that they do not provide magic solutions to what Meta already proposes with the Quest Pro. But the reality is that Apple’s proposal is infinitely superior to Meta’s.
Quest will be an option until Apple decides to launch glasses at a similar price. Then it will be the end of Quest. And surely Zuckerberg is well aware of this. The key is knowing if Apple can lower the price a lot with a Vision without the Pro tag.
Another who has commented is Elon Musk, in their own way. With a meme where compare Vision Pro to getting high on hallucinogenic mushrooms:
The meme says: “Apple Augmented Reality, $3,500 – Augmented Reality (Magic Mushrooms), $20“.
We do not know to what extent Elon Musk joke with the price or with the technology. But it’s a rather retrograde opinion. Augmented reality is not about hallucinatingbut about adding useful information to what you’re looking at.
These are surprising comments coming from a technology leader experimenting with technologies that also border on “hallucinogenic”like the chips in Neuralink’s brain.
And considering the issue of prices, some have reminded him what a Tesla costs:
But it’s true that putting on glasses for entertainment or work is still a taboo subjectwhich many people do not accept.
Anyway, Elon Musk’s meme about the Vision Pro It seems more like a way to make fun of Apple, and its prices, than anything else. Elon Musk and Tim Cook don’t get along, and have clashed several times in public and in private. We will see how they behave VisionProwhen they go on sale.
