Their headset will replace the phone and computer. Welcome to the future of work. Hope you already went long Big Tech as I told you to, and as a result own Apple stock. Made in Taiwan 6 Vote up! You wont BELIEVE how this mum makes $1300 per week working from home!!1!! 7 Vote up! You wont BELIEVE what Prince Philip looks like now! 1 Vote up! Heh for Davos 2 Vote up! I would imagine every single person with a pension has exposire to apple stock. as an aside, this is terrible news for people like me who cant wear earbuds because they dont fit in normal earholes. 0 Vote up! Can I just shock you? I like apple. 0 Vote up! I would imagine every single person with a pension has exposire to apple stock. Heh, exactly. Basically impossible to avoid owning Apple if you do any kind of broad equity investment 1 Vote up! Anyway this gadget looks fooking ridiculous, you have to carry a battery pack or sit next to a plug socket, and it costs $3500 which will translate to £3500 when it eventually arrives in the UK. Best to wait a couple of generations I think 0 Vote up! meanwhile, unk’s home depot share purchase schedule is still 2 b revealed, but we can bet it shows heavy losses 2 Vote up! I think it could be kind of pivotal. We all end up increasingly immersed in a digital world for work, fund and social. Or we pull back and think fook that. Maybe we will split into two camps. Some people could totally lose themselves in this tbh. 0 Vote up! We have been promised a VR revolution several times before and it always flops and Apple dont always get everything right. On this one the price point is too high for the mass market and will be hobbiests/first adopters only that purchase. Absolutely on guarantee this will take off - most people are uncomfortable wearing VR helmets - I tried one and it made me feel sick. 0 Vote up! no guarantee. 0 Vote up! I’m not sure people really want to be immersed in a digital world via a device they wear on their heads tbh. IMO it will remain a novelty, at least until the technology DRAMATICALLY improves. We’ve kind of done this already with Google Glass and VR headsets for gaming. They have niche appeal not mass appeal, the form factor just is not there and this doesn’t seem very different to me. 0 Vote up! Plus big lol at the footage of the dad sitting there recording his kids with one so he can remember it later. Er maybe just look at them directly. Real dystopian stuff 2 Vote up! Worf called it. If you want a gaming toy buy the Meta helmet. Apple are reinventing how the business world works. $3500 is too much for a phone but it isn’t a phone. 0 Vote up! How would it affect the pron/sechs industry? 0 Vote up! Agree with GC - no guarantee that it takes off. But if it does we really start to go down the digital rabbit hole. On the other hand if Apple cant get this going you do kind of wonder if weve reached a limit to human digital immersion. People may start to draw back. I think many of us already are (or would like to…) Be interesting to see how this goes. 0 Vote up! Teams proved how much people want to digitise office life. This is just the next level. 0 Vote up! Plus big lol at the footage of the dad sitting there recording his kids with one so he can remember it later. Er maybe just look at them directly. Real dystopian stuff This, times about a million. Maybe in the recording the kids will also be wearing the headset, using it to watch Netflix on a giant virtual screen. 1 Vote up! What’s wrong with the real world? It’s not all bad. 0 Vote up! It is if you are poor little hyoobert. Why do you think he is so keen on VR? 1 Vote up! I'd have bought an Oculus years ago if it didn't require a Facebook account. People posting way back then about having their Facebook accounts closed and having an expensive brick replace their VR set. 0 Vote up! It's undoubtedly the way things are headed (apologies) but has a real Mobira Talkma vibe. Which was about 5 minutes before the Startac 0 Vote up! We’ve kind of done this already with Google Glass and VR headsets for gaming. They have niche appeal not mass appeal, the form factor just is not there and this doesn’t seem very different to me. agreed - i think the only way apple can differentiate this is that they already have a massive buy-in of people into their ecosystem in a way meta and even google don’t if they can make this work seamlessly with apps on your iphone/macbook/apple watch i could see it having commercial appeal but that’ll take a big investment from developers (which i assume is what they’re hoping for with the launch) 0 Vote up! eg presumably the idea is someone can take a 3d video of their holiday or their new flat on their iphone, send it to their mum via imessage who can then pop on her headset and see a vr capture of whatever their kid has sent them you can’t imagine we’re that far out from being able to do it 0 Vote up! Even better. Why bother going to the office when you can don the goggles and FAFH? 0 Vote up! You wont BELIEVE how this mum makes $1300 per week working from home!!1!! Is it Furio's mum ? 1 Vote up! I bought an Oculus and it was fun for a while ( like maybe a month). It basically just gathers dust in the corner now. 0 Vote up! Refresh Back to board Join the discussion Login Register 0 Vote up!
