            Apple missed on plenty of their products, if you aren't aware of at least 4 of the major ones, you haven't done any digging. Their latest one is an AI self driving mini van that was just killed again.

            There is stuff that can be done with the Apple vision pro that would be huge. Maybe not life changing for every person sort of huge, but an important app/software that should have released at launch kind of huge. Nobody has done it yet and I don't believe anybody has even mentioned it yet, tho I'll admit I may have missed some murmurings on random threads somewhere. I can't bring myself to flat out tell you what it is because as a luddite I really want someone else to come up with the idea as I personally want nothing to do with it. I've given you all the hints and clues as to what it is. They're in this thread thread. Prove to me you're not an AI chatbot by telling coming up with the idea yourself (even tho it's technically already been posted)

            Again, as a luddite I'm more than happy to sit on a smart idea for years or even decades and do nothing with it. I'm actually morbidly curious to see how long it'll take other people. Prove to me I'm not as smart and clever and smug as this post makes me appear by telling me what the clever idea is. Honestly, I want you to. Good luck.

            Indeed. But then why didn't Apple just do it? Were they simply too afraid to put display "Windows™" in an apple product or did they not think of it? And looking isn't the only thing you can do with these types of windows. They can be used for interactive experiences, not limited to but for example games.

            And I never once said this was my original idea. Only that Apple's "tech demo" unlocked "something" that was on this chart and they should know what they have on their hands but fail to see it OR are keeping very quiet about it. I'm curious to know if anyone else sees it. That's why I'm posting and that is what I'm asking (You). Do you see it?

            BECAUSE NOBODY FRICKING WANTS IT. Seriously, why would you cover a window with what amounts to a television screen to play an animated loop of anything but the outside? What miserable basement or shitass urban apartment do you live in that you'd like to forfeit a window at the cost of a custom-sized screen, a computer, and the scenery to play on it 24/7 at the cost of electricity? Its moronic at worst, and laughably niche at best.

            Apples moronic headset didn't unlock "anything" because its a stupid infograph that doesn't mean anything. Did you make it? I think you're too dumb to realize how stupid the product is and you really want apple's headset to be cool but can't afford it but still adamant its a super useful thing. Its not, its about as useful as your useless image you keep referring to.

            You misunderstand.
            You use augmented reality/VR to add in window or virtually replace an entire wall with a giant plate of AR/VR glass with a virtual environment on the other side that's fully 3D so it looks real and isn't just a animated image. You could even add in a fake sunroof with this method, or just replace all the walls and ceiling so you're inside a fish tank that's underwater. Or do something more modest like...virtually change your wall paper/room color.

Just see the demos of people sitting down on a toilet and its like they're sitting on a mountaintop.

    It's a rather useless device I think. If it at least had VR games then it would have the selling point of being a way to experience VR games which are quite different from the "standard" but as it is the device feels mostly useless. I don't see the real-world appeal of the "virtual monitors with a brick on your face" use-case. If it were small and sleek you could say it's a proper wearable or something, but it's rather big with an external cable and battery, so I don't really get it. The price is also so high that you can very easily just buy a bunch of nice, big monitors and have them for real with better resolution and without wearing that thing in order to work.

    It's basically pointless in the general sense, I'm sure there are some people with frick knows what niche use case which find it useful but that's it. I think this was basically a way to gauge the market and to get some experience with this sort of product so that the 2nd or 3rd or 4th iteration can be something actually good that people might really have a use for, at a price point that doesn't basically invalidate its existence.

    Also I think if they want to pick the AR route, I think they need some sort of see-through display so that you can see things around you directly rather than through some shitty cameras and with low FoV plus geometric distortion.

      It sounds strange but pcvr and vr gaming are a pretty small value add. I do it but it doesn’t keep me in the headset more than a couple hours a week maybe. Spatial computing is really where it will see day to day use, and for that there is nothing else close.

        The problem with VR gaming currently is that the vast majority of VR games suck and even those that don't suck are rarely anything far beyond the "tech demo" level. They are not built to the same standard as regular games and are very frequently lackluster because of it, but that has nothing to do with VR itself, rather with the lackluster level of investment / interest in making VR games from the industry side so it's an entirely different matter.

        The problem with "spacial computing" is what I've already described. It's fundamentally kind of sucky and useless, there is no reason to do your job using virtual shit when you can buy the real hardware. Wearing that thing sucks ass because the FoV is small, the cameras are a lot worse than your eyes and the image is somewhat distorted too. It's just bad and not something desirable to subject yourself to just to do the same things you can accomplish with real objects and probably for the same price or less. Then the other use case of "working" by waggling your hands around at some VR objects is also shitty because "interacting" with virtual objects with no physical feedback actually really sucks. There is no point to this thing beyond some niche applications right now and it will not revolutionize anything as it stands.

        It first needs to get A LOT better, as in this thing needs to be barely more obtrusive than a pair of glasses and the price needs to come down a lot in order to make the proposition of doing things in VR rather in the real world make sense. If that doesn't happen it's not going to get any major use because nobody wants to wear a brick on their face which comes with a MASSIVE nerf to your vision for 40h+ a week as a necessary device for doing work.

          >this thing needs to be barely more obtrusive than a pair of glasses and the price needs to come down a lot
          Google glass was on the right track I think: it was a simple frame and relatively unobtrusive. Nerds made google glass so of course it looked goofy but if they made something like that even with a cord to a battery pack in your pocket or whatever, that'd be it. There isn't full immersion because nobody wants to wear turtle-shell glasses at all times, but that'd be the ticket and the display, audio, and compute tech is probably 20 years away for that.

          You pretty much nailed every point and I have to add; apple goggles will never be for gaming for the same reason the window resizing and keyboard use is clunky; theres no hand units so its ONLY using cameras to try and see what your hands are doing so even stuff like fruit ninja doesn't work as good as other headsets with hand controllers.

          The lower price point would be for mass sales; a $4000 headset like I described would still sell very well if it lived up to the same capabilities of apple goggles today, just not units in the millions. 180,000 goggles sold sounds like a lot, but for apple thats probably considered a flop when they're selling billions of phones, and probably tens of millions of computers.

        Not sure if you are familiar with VaM for PC VR but considering even Steam wouldn't host it I just assumed Apple's walled garden would reject VR/AR shit like that outright.

    VR/AR is a solution looking for a problem. It’s dumb and nobody cares and doesn’t do anything a normal screen and wiimote can’t do, but Apple are trying to force it after Meta failed.

    After the whirlwind of internet and smartphones and everything that goes along with those, everyone is trying to be the first to the next big thing but so far it’s all shit.

    Crypto, VR, AR, and 3D printing are solutions looking for problems. self driving cars have been 80% of the way there for over half a decade. quantum computing is vaporware. IoT and drones have somewhat delivered but are hardly revolutionary. Generative AI probably is the real deal but so far its been “hey here’s a neat AI I made lol” without a true revolutionary product.

      I feel that's an overstatement. But they are definitely niche uses that are likely not to scale as fast as PCs, broadband internet, or smartphones did. For me, the largest turn off for VR (and I've had 6 headsets so far) is that it's a solitary affair you have to prep for to experience - as opposed to just glancing at a screen that people have been doing for over half a century.
