This is Walnut Grove’s insight on the newly released Apple Vision Pro. Is all the hype because it's a new Apple product or is it an actual viable product that will change the way we view the world?

Senior Aaron Navarro talked about how he would use the headset for the jokes. “I don't know what I would use it for. I think I would just go out in public and just troll people with it because it's so stupid-looking.” He also states how he thinks the headset will look over the years,” I think the design will fade out in a couple of years because technology will get better because big giant goggles are not useful.” He also says it does AR which is augmented reality which is cool and a lot of people are using it for mechanics, so they have websites open and tools available to them.
People walk around in public with them for some odd reason, but the big thing is augmented reality. He states there is absolutely no way this will ever replace technology like phones because phones are more accessible and easier to carry around. He remarks about what would need to be improved for him to go out and buy. "I think the features are cool. I just think it would have to be smaller and more compact... big goggles are just heavy to carry around. And then the price obviously would have to be lower because they're way too high now."
Junior Shannon Hayes talks about how she wouldn’t even buy the headset if the money was available, “I mean I just don't want to be walking around with a headset on all the time when I just pick my phone up. If it goes mainstream yes but if I'm just the only person wearing it I'm not doing that.” She then says the current state of the headset is not going to be actually used like people say it will be. "I don't think people are actually going to be using it. I think it's like the iPhone. I think it will get less bulky and more sleek and natural. I think it might evolve into maybe looking better like glasses.”
Even though she personally would not get the headset she gets why people might use it in later years as the technology gets better, "Yeah, because it's so much easier if you just have it right there without having to look a certain way, like, without having it as a physical thing it's just something you can control by using your eyes.”
Michael Middleton-Perez (10) expresses that he would a hundred percent buy it if he had the funds to pay for it,” I would use it for different things because it can do a lot of things such as watch movies, answer phone calls, and just like if your phone is dead you don't have to go charge it.” Then he comments on who would use this in the coming years he states, “I think it will be more useful for the new kids and stuff, but for older people such as teens, I don't think we would really use it as much. It would be mostly meant for kids and be used for centuries.”
He mentions some of the things he would like to see for him to buy the headset, "I would probably pay the same price as a phone because it can kinda do the same things as a phone. Something you should be able to do on it is being able to play games on it which would be a cool feature.” He then notes how the headset might replace some of the technology that a lot of the population has today. ”Yes, if it had the extent to type quickly on it and improve, say like you can connect a keyboard to it, people would be submerged into it and it would become very useful in our modern society.”
The Apple Vision Pro comes at a steep price range of $3,500 to upwards of $4,600. Many people online compare it to the much cheaper $500 Meta Quest 3 with the same augmented reality feature. Yet, the two companies have two different purposes. The Meta Quest 3 can primarily play games whilst the Vision Pros are supposed to be an aid to make life easier and more efficient.
