The new Apple Vision Pro defines the future as they found a way to blend digital content with the real world. However, it is crucial to acknowledge the potential dangers of not using these innovations responsibly, especially when you need to be fully aware of your surroundings.

We want to prioritize your safety and ensure you can recognize the risks associated with the Apple Vision Pro.  

Know the Facts

Apple has provided crucial guidance regarding using their new tech to mitigate potential risks. It is essential to understand the context surrounding these recommendations, especially given the concerning statistics surrounding pedestrian safety, such as:   

Dangers When Using Your New Technology in Public

Reduced Situational Awareness   

You risk accidents such as trip and falls, collisions with objects, and even stepping into oncoming traffic. A device around your face will also compromise your ability to perceive hazards or other pedestrians.  

Misleading Features  

The Vision Pro’s most notable feature is its transparency mode. However, this does not allow users to see the real world as advertised. The headset is made of opaque glass, not a see-through screen. What the user is genuinely looking at is a live stream, which is not as accurate.  This puts you at risk of a delayed response if an obstacle comes your way while you wear the headset as you walk.  

 Object Distortion  

Wearing this headset has been described as seeing through binoculars. Your field of vision is very limited, putting you at risk of being hit from your side. The headset’s ability to mimic the real world through an external camera gives users overconfidence that they can do day-to-day tasks while wearing it. Your distance and visuals can be distorted, putting you at risk of injuries.  

Physical Harm  

Users have already reported struggles with eye strain after using the new tech for an extended period. Other users have reported that after only using the new Vision Pro for 15 minutes, they experienced neck strain combined with headaches.
