augmentation? > It has been said about this particular company (Apple) that it is making the "paradigm changes" in the communication / government sector. Let's say it's an honorable mention. The release of vision-pro, however, is a good introduction to what engineers call "spatial computing", not in current jargon called "augmented reality".
As one would expect such bold leaps have reasonable hopes of success if they come down the avenue of entertainment, in the broadest sense. vision-pro is a "glasses" device that, through a rather successful illusion, creates inside the "glass" (no further than a few points from the eyes) screens and "desk surfaces" that seem to float transparently within the visual field. Navigation in these digital environments is done with the movements of the iris, and of course voice commands also work.
Whether it's considered excessive on our part or not, we still think that what constitutes a leap is that vision-pro organizes and reorganizes gestures. Hand movements. And finally the bodies.
