Apple has officially entered the VR game but their new headset is going to cost an arm and a leg.
During Monday’s WWDC developer conference, Apple announced they were going to release an AR/VR mixed reality headset called Apple Vision Pro.

Created to support both AR and VR applications, the Vision Pro is a standalone headset featuring an innovative design without the need for a dedicated controller. Instead, thanks to the use of multiple external and internal sensors and cameras,
Apple is planning to rely entirely on voice inputs and hand/eye gestures. On top of that, Apple has created a new feature called EyeSight that uses the seamless curved display on the headset’s exterior so that people can see a user’s reactions while someone is wearing the device.
For sports fans, Apple is promising a one-of-a-kind experience featuring multiview in augmented reality, and immersive replays.

Unfortunately, Apple Vision Pro comes with a hefty price tag of $3,499.
It didn’t take long for people to crush Apple for charging $3,500 for a VR/AR headset no matter how cool it looks.
