First time using the Apple Vision Pro: it blew me away – Yanko Design

From the moment I laid eyes on the Apple Vision Pro, I was struck by the intuitive nature of its interface. Controlling the device with natural gestures, like tapping fingers together to select or pinching to zoom, felt like an extension of my own movements, creating a fluid and truly impressive user experience. “Everything is fully visible,” I marveled, amazed by the responsiveness of the device, which made every interaction intuitive and natural.

During initial setup, the Digital Crown, borrowed from the Apple Watch, brought up the home view with a single press. The mix of futuristic technology and familiar elements made the icons react when I looked at them, creating a magical experience. This immediate and responsive engagement reinforced the intuitive nature of the user interface. As I explored this advanced technology, I remember thinking, “I haven’t read any reviews of the Vision Pro, and that’s a good thing.” » Approaching the device without any preconceptions allowed me to truly immerse myself in the experience.

As I browsed a demo photo library, the ambient lighting dimmed, focusing my attention on images that transported me to places like Iceland and the Oregon Coast, displayed in panoramic fashion. “It was so amazing,” I exclaimed, overwhelmed by the vividness and immersive experience the photos offered.

Viewing space photos and videos has added incredible depth to everyday moments. Watching a family birthday party captured with the Apple Vision Pro felt like I was standing among the celebrating children, bringing those moments to life. “So no one else can see this except you and me, huh?” I pointed this out to Avnish, my guide throughout this trip, who was able to see what I saw through an iPad. This added layer of interaction deepened my appreciation of the technology as I watched a space video shot with the iPhone 15 Pro, captivated by the depth and realism.

The design of the Apple Vision Pro was particularly sleek and modern, with a lightweight, comfortable frame suitable for extended wear. The minimal physical buttons enhanced its sleek appearance, showcasing its advanced gesture and eye-tracking capabilities. A dedicated button for capturing spatial photos and videos added real-world interactions in vivid digital clarity, demonstrating Apple’s meticulous attention to hardware design.

Manipulating my surroundings with a spin of the Digital Crown was particularly impressive. I could adjust my immersion levels from partial to full, exploring digital renderings of places like the Mount Hood National Forest as if I were really there. This seamless transition back to reality, while remaining connected with those around me, demonstrated the device’s seamless integration into personal and social settings.

Spatial multitasking introduced a new way to interact with applications, allowing me to manipulate windows in a spatial context as if I were manipulating physical objects. This dynamic and intuitive approach has transformed traditional interfaces into a dynamic and three-dimensional workspace.

The entertainment capabilities of the Apple Vision Pro were striking. Watching 3D movies like “Super Mario Bros. Movie” and “Avatar: The Way of Water” transformed any space into a personal cinema. The high-resolution display and spatial audio created a visual experience that far surpassed traditional setups. “It’s impressive,” I remarked, blown away by the depth and immersion of the features.

The Apple Immersive Video demo was a highlight, transporting me to the center of the action: flying over landscapes, diving with sharks, and standing on a football field. This segment was so captivating that I was almost speechless, only managing to say, “That was so amazing. »

An interactive session that included a butterfly landing on my hand and a close encounter with a dinosaur showcased the unique capabilities of Apple Vision Pro, blurring the lines between digital and physical realities. These experiences felt real and tangible, reinforcing my appreciation of the device’s ability to create such vivid and interactive moments.

Finally, with the Apple Vision Pro, I had the chance to rehearse – well, rather pretend – to present Apple’s famous “one more thing” on the stage of the Steve Jobs Theater. It was so real I almost waved to the non-existent crowd! I’ve been there before for press events, but never on stage. The closest I could get was the last third of the theater.

After the demo – and yes, I highly encourage anyone remotely interested in spatial computing to visit your local Apple store – I had the opportunity to purchase a brand new Vision Pro built on site. The Solo Knit Band, Dual Loop Band and, most importantly, the Light Seal come in size 21W, which is perfect for me. Apple has streamlined the sizing process in the Apple Store app, which now includes 3D facial scanning for a personalized fit, guiding you through capturing the necessary facial dimensions.

Setting up Apple Vision Pro

The Apple Vision Pro demo was a stunning introduction to futuristic technology that seemed straight out of science fiction. Its intuitive interface and gesture controls immediately impressed me, making every interaction natural and fluid. While the immersive experience of exploring vibrant, distant locations and interacting with realistic spatial videos was captivating, the demo ended too soon, leaving me eager for more expansive and immersive exploration with Vision Pro. I look forward to exploring its potential in a longer session.
