Apple Vision Pro is not leaving a good impression on those who have had the opportunity to try it. And the lack of Netflix isn’t the problem.

What Apple has decided to do with its mixed reality viewer is to try to give users already fascinated by Apple another device which in the vision of the company led by Tim Cook is the point of reference for everything and everyone.

And to ensure that users, and even those who have never yet tried an Apple product, are convinced that there is something revolutionary in the Vision Pro, the company is trying to convey the idea that even the concept of “spatial computing" has been revolutionized.

But alongside the great proclamations there are also the reviews of those who have previewed the physical object. Reviews that have highlighted a whole series of problems also relating to one’s health after less than a quarter of an hour of use.

Apple Vision Pro, not a work item

If you have ever tried a virtual reality headset you will probably have noticed that, after a while, wearing this sort of helmet can cause a feeling of heaviness in the shoulders. And as far as Apple is concerned, its Vision Pro also seems to suffer from excessive weight, net of a series of very refined options for the bands that should keep it in place on the head.

The reviews resulting from the previews have, for example, underlined how after a while, apparently between 15 and 30 minutes, the weight of the device begins to be felt from the head and along the neck with even some complaining of having felt a very strong headache.

For an object that costs over 3 thousand dollars it is certainly a bad surprise. Among the positive aspects is the quality of the immersive experiences but at the price of a return to reality which apparently brings some real pain. Other aspects that have been highlighted in the reviews and which apparently need a little more work.

Also trying to get used to the new gestures, those of using the virtual keyboard, which requires touching it with a combination of eye and finger movements with precise timing or trying to stretch your hands in the virtual space to come into contact with the keys.

And the problems encountered in using the keyboard could reduce the options for using this new science fiction device compared to work and relegate the Apple Vision Pro to those moments of leisure in which you have a few minutes for an alternative experience or desire to watch a movie on Disney+, apparently the only external platform that wants to provide an app to Apple, in a different way than usual. A question that comes back is whether this whole experience, however refined, is actually worth the money asked by Apple.
