What do we make of the $3,500 Apple Vision Pro? It doesn't take a magic leap to guess

Tune in and hear us human-not-AI vultures get meta on the news

Register Kettle At WWDC this year, Apple teased what a lot of us were expecting: a virtual reality headset. What was perhaps a bit of a surprise – or perhaps not – was the eye-watering $3,500 price tag, that it looks like Ready Player One cosplay, and it has a two-hour battery hanging off it.

What to make of it all? Is the power pack annoying? What software will run on it? While a lot of cool tech has being packed into the hardware, who are these goggles even for? Has Apple learned from the mistakes of Meta, Magic Leap, Google Glass, and Microsoft HoloLens?

All this and more – including Apple finally breaking free of Intel with its all-Arm-based Macs – is discussed by El Reg's real-definitely-not-AI vultures below.

As seen in the thumbnail, clockwise from top left, we have on our 15-minute episode today Tobias Mann, Thomas Claburn, host Iain Thomson, and Chris Williams. Check it out and comment away. ®
