In a highly competitive move within the virtual reality market, Meta, formerly known as Facebook, unveiled its latest VR offering, the Quest 3, just days before Cupertino giant introduced its own groundbreaking product, the Apple Vision Pro.
Following this, Mark Zuckerberg, the founder and CEO of Meta, has shared his thoughts on Apple's first virtual reality (VR) headset, and it is indeed intriguing.
What are Mark Zuckerberg's thoughts on Apple Vision Pro?
During a meeting with Meta employees, Mark Zuckerberg discussed Apple's Vision Pro VR headset in detail. He mentioned that Apple didn't discover any revolutionary solutions to the physical limitations that Meta's teams haven't already explored.
"Higher-resolution, individual experiences"
Zuckerberg acknowledged the higher-resolution displays used by Apple but pointed out the drawbacks of increased energy consumption, the need for a battery and wired connection, and the significantly higher cost compared to Meta's Quest 3.
However, the most significant point highlighted by Zuckerberg was the difference in values and vision between Meta and Apple regarding their headsets. He emphasized that Meta's vision is fundamentally centered around social interaction and bringing people closer together in new ways.
In contrast, Apple's approach seemed to focus on individual experiences, depicting "a person sitting on a couch by themselves." Zuckerberg concluded by expressing that while Apple's Vision Pro might represent a potential future of computing, it didn't align with the vision he personally envisions.
