Apple today finally launched a mixed reality headset called Vision Pro, which allows users to switch freely between virtual reality and augmented reality, and experience the seamless integration of the digital world and the physical world. The picture quality and experience of this device are very good, but there are also many shortcomings, such as the price of up to 3499 US dollars, bulky appearance, and the need to connect an external battery.
Well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo just released his investment opinion on Vision Pro, saying that Apple showed the vision of spatial computing and the design innovation of AR / MR devices, but did not show the necessity of using Vision Pro in daily life. In contrast, the current ChatGPT/AIGC is more convincing in terms of changing human life in the foreseeable future.
Guo Mingchi also said that the higher-than-expected price and release date of Vision Pro will need to wait for more than half a year, which is not conducive to short-term investment sentiment. What needs to be closely observed is whether Apple can provide more attractive applications/content/ecology before the pre-order demand and release.
The Washington Post pointed out that although Apple may hope that this product can become the next big hit, it seems that it is not mature enough and attractive enough. For us ordinary people, the most worrying thing may be that one day this technology is really popular, and we will have a tool that keeps us online without knowing it.
