For the asking price I would hope he would be! :lol:

Look forward to reading about it? :thumbup:

This is why it has the "Pro" branding - it signifies this is the high-end model, not a consumer version, with price expectations accordingly.

Once they get this out, and work out the kinks to figure out exactly what features are important to users, there will no doubt be less premium, non-Pro versions that can't do everything the high end ones do, but still offer a good experience. Expect them to follow the iPhone trajectory - we're at the iPhone 1 stage right now, when it's more expensive than anything else, and only the hyper-enthusiastic people are going to get in for whatever it costs.

The interesting thing for me is not so much the hardware at this point (though the engineering and problem solving is impressive), it's really the "spatial computing" metaphor. Is spatial computing going to a "thing" that people want, and find important use cases for? AR has very obvious benefits to me, spatial computing I'm less sure about, and it remains to be seen whether people embrace this and find it valuable over our existing ways to "computer".

Spatial audio could be great for musicians, provided it’s supplemented with haptic feedback - imagine playing a ‘virtual instrument’ generated by computer.

From a purely technical perspective I'm impressed with the achievement but I wouldn't consider one of these for a moment myself. The privacy implications are hideous to contemplate and you know they'll be looking to squeeze every last drop out of you that they can.

This is where I suspect this technology tends towards if left to run unabated: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJg02ivYzSs

No thanks! :sick:

I've been using virtual desktop on Quest 2 for a couple of years. It is genuinely useful at times.

Might save me the cost of buying four or more high end monitors to run Logic on . . . . . . .

I can see Zuke being totally into this as Zuke has vested interest in prawnhub :lol:

I shall check it ooot in an apple store.
I wonder whether looking at Logic multiband eq thereafter looking up/down will lower/raise the curve of a specific frequency.
I can see meself getting cross eyed :crazy: lol.

I watched the video. I laughed in particular at the FaceTime call, thinking that the two guests were not able to see the host's face. Then they announced it's presented as a virtual model, complete with computerised expressions. What a joke. Zoom would be better! :)

I can imaging enjoying a movie (only on my own), but that's a lot of movie tickets, and I only watch a few a year!

Fancy tech, but so, so useless and disconnecting IMO. It'll be interesting to see what it gets used for, though.

In conjunction with low-latency 5G, it could be wonderful for rehearsing when band members are in different locations - or even recording.

In fact we could form virtual groups with members anywhere in the world.

Latency will never get that low. Physics innit.
You could get to the stage of rehearsing across a town or even a county perhaps. But $3.5k per head buys a lot of rehearsal time in a studio. ;)

Ah, yes you’re right! But I’m not thinking of the 1st generation, more like generation 10.
