: "Meta’s Quest 3 headset has four external cameras. Apple ups that count to twelve: six “world-facing” tracking cameras, two high-resolution video passthrough cameras, and four eye-tracking cameras. It also has a TrueDepth 3D sensor and Lidar.

However, the privacy experts I spoke with felt the risks associated with AR/VR headsets come not from the number of cameras or sensors, but from the perspective they offer into a user’s life.

Data privacy expert Maritza Johnson said it’s “very common for most people in the U.S. to be surrounded by cameras and microphones.” But those devices, though ever-present, aren’t physically attached to the user. “A phone is not mounted to my head, [...] a big difference is in the intimacy of the device,” she said." https://spectrum.ieee.org/apple-vision-pro-privacy

Insightful analysis on the Apple Vision Pro from someone who worked at Oculus: what Apple got right that Oculus has not, why it’s intentionally “an over-engineered devkit”, and why it’s not worth buying yet.

Augmented Reality idea:

Whenever I start singing half-remembered songs that fit the current situation, my AR glasses pop up the rest of the lyrics so I sound clever and not like a dork.

What does "privacy" mean when you have half a dozen cameras or sensors strapped to your face?

It's a tough question, and one that honestly, is just starting to be understood. I spoke with privacy experts Maritza Johnson and Mike Godwin for their perspective on whether we can trust tech companies with the data AR/VR headsets like the Apple Vision Pro and Meta Quest suck in.

Sarah Sanders' Luxurious Super Bowl Hints At More Corruption

I wasn't going to buy an Apple Vision Pro for many reasons. But I did buy the Quest 3 this week and it's got multiple improvements over the Quest 2.

I like the Quest 3 and think that objectively, it probably works better than AVP for a lot of scenarios.

Plus, it's cheaper 😛

Then, Karl Guttag came out with this post today:
https://kguttag.com/2024/03/01/apple-vision-pros-optics-blurrier-lower-contrast-than-meta-quest-3/

Vindication, or confirmation bias? 😀

Whatever the case, both my wife (who found the Quest 2 hard to use) and I found that the Quest 3 was much easier to use (lighter and fits better and easier to put on/remove) and the best movie watching experience we’ve had in AR/VR so far …

I also found that the Quest 3 works beautifully with glasses. Compare that to AVP which won’t work with glasses at all.

Costs 7x more and does 4x less. Having used both the Meta Quest 3 with Touch Pro Controllers and the Apple Vision Pro... I kept and use my Meta Quest 3.

Apple may be the future, but Meta is the now.

“If, in the next technological era, all we’re doing is the same thing we do on screens now but on a screen that’s a couple inches in front of our eyes, that’s not inspiring.” Hear, hear! https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/what-apples-new-vision-pro-headset-might-do-to-our-brain/

Not only is the goal of showing virtual screens everywhere wildly unambitious, it’s just an enhanced version of what we already had in the ’90s. has the potential to create new, more socially engaged ways of working and playing. Bigger screens or windows hovering in virtual space, on the other hand, is the existing desktop computing paradigm on steroids. 🤷‍♂️
