Tim Cook: “Apple Vision Pro Is The First Spatial Computer!” [VIDEO]

TECH NEWS – Apple’s CEO says the AR headset is tomorrow’s technology available today (and explains why it’ll cost at least $3,500).


After the headset’s release on February 2, Tim Cook sent a memo to employees thanking them for their work, which was shared by Bloomberg. He compared the Apple Vision Pro to the iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch, all of which have made the headset one of the most revolutionary products. He believes the device will redefine technology as we know it.

“Today we launched Apple Vision Pro, ushering in a whole new era of spatial computing. Moments like this should make us all pause to celebrate what we’ve achieved and reflect on the amazing potential that still lies ahead. This morning, I joined our team at Apple Fifth Avenue, where the excitement of this moment was palpable. It’s incredible to watch people experience Apple Vision Pro for the first time. The impossible becomes possible right before their eyes, and they often don’t have the words to describe the experience. It really is technology that has to be seen and experienced to be believed. And it was truly a gift to hear customers share their amazement, their emotions, and their dreams for this incredible device we’ve created. The whole experience reaffirmed the magnitude of this moment and the critical role our retail teams play in bringing this unprecedented technology to the world.

Apple Vision Pro brings together thousands of innovations to create a product that’s unlike anything the world has ever seen. It’s an extraordinary achievement, and as so many of you can attest, it’s been years in the making. Apple Vision Pro is a reality because of you; because of your dedication, your passion, and your contributions to the unique culture that drives innovation at Apple. In particular, I want to thank all of the teams that have worked on this project, putting in countless hours over many years to once again push the boundaries of what is possible.

Of course, the most important thing to us about Apple Vision Pro is how it enriches the lives of our customers – strengthening connections, unlocking potential, and empowering people to do things they simply couldn’t do otherwise. It’s deeply moving to see people relive their favorite memories, or even introduce a loved one to a relative they’ve never had the chance to meet. It’s exhilarating to imagine the incredible new entertainment experiences our customers will discover and the innovative applications our amazing developers will create. It’s exhilarating to think of what this will unlock for industries around the world, and the incredible opportunities that lie ahead. Because with spatial computing, this is just the beginning of the impact we can make.

Two weeks ago, we celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Mac, a revolutionary device that changed the world and set the stage for decades of innovation. When we shared the iPod with the world, we put a thousand songs in our customers’ pockets overnight. I remember the day we launched iPhone. We knew we had something special, but none of us could have predicted the profound impact it would have on our everyday lives. Then came the iPad, a magical sheet of glass that became anything you wanted it to be, inspiring new forms of connection and creativity for millions of people. With Apple Watch, not a day goes by that I don’t get a note from a user about its life-saving impact. And with today’s launch, Apple Vision Pro joins the pantheon of breakthrough products that have defined Apple and redefined technology as we know it. It’s not every day we have a moment like this. Thank you for everything you’ve done to make it happen,” Cook said.

The device has a large Lightning port on the inside, but taking the headset apart isn’t so easy. Removing the power cord, battery puck, and Solo knit band is easy, but the video embedded below shows how difficult it is to take apart. To get to the display, you have to remove unique cushions and light seals, and there is no opening point to open the plastic film, display, and glass assembly. With the lens assembly removed, you can see that there are two fans cooling the unit, but from there it gets even more complicated with lots of tape, screws, brackets, and small connectors that really only experts can see inside the unit.

There are a lot of components, so an amateur could easily mess it up!
