'Do you remember when we had those funny things called ears on our heads and used to communicate through that hole called a mouth?'

 

'Haha! Yes, that brings back memories. And remember those two other things, oh, what were thay called again...?'

 

'Eyes! They were eyes!'

 

'Yes, that's them! Do you miss them?'

 

'... (sad) ... I miss tears.'

I do hope they bring out a version to match my Dyson Face Mask ...

Then I'll really feel a part of humanity.

 

$949! 😲

But clearly it's economical to those who can SPEND £6k for a dinner.

It's like buying a bag of chips to them...if I got the calculation right!.

Mind you, a soup bowl sized chips will cost you just short of £5.......these days.

I got my kids vr headsets last Xmas. They have those meta quest 2's. Awesome gadgets, and yeah I've been into the metaverse (horizon worlds) and had an explore. It's mainly kids in there swearing and playing shooting games with each other etc. I did go to a free concert with hologram of Biggie Smalls which was cool.

 

It really stung buying 2 of those at £300 a pop. But I knew they run a modified Android software, and that I could enable developer mode and pirate the games so I don't need to pay for them. 

 

The massive issue I see with this apple thing, firstly is the ridiculous price tag. Secondly, you won't be able to pirate anything so it's going to cost a fortune in apps or whatever those apple people spend their money on.

 

I just can't see it taking off at 3 and a half grand a pop. And battery only lasts 2 hours which is probably going to get worse as it gets some use.

Congratulations!

When the tiime comes, your kids will have no problem shooting others....it's just like the game!

I'd worry more about the mind control and grooming of kids than the price imo.

They aren't going to grow up and shoot people. It's really no different to playing any other video game or watching a movie. 

 

I see what they are trying to do with this AR headset. It's another level. Like putting an overlay on to of actual reality, but it's priced too high to even gain traction IMHO

There are many shooting games for good reason. If you think they are just games, you are naive.

Look at increase in child violence compared to when we were kids.

It's mind programming.

Either way that's not really my point.

 

I'm pretty sure this thing won't take off.

Apple users are not rational.

 

Talk to any one of them and they rave for minutes about the new iPhone or Macbook or whatever.

 

"Best device I have bought IN MY LIFE."

 

Its like mass Stockholm syndrome.

 

They do not consider money when it comes from Apple.

 

Which is why this type of device was given to Apple to market.

 

I sincerely doubt Apple developed this themselves.

 

This thing may even be developed by a military contractor like Lockheed Martin or Northrop Grumman.

 

Those guys demand a lot of money, so the 3500 USD price tag may come from them.

 

Apple users are going to take out bank loans just to be able to get shafted with this thing by their mothership.
