Can Apple Vision Really Help MedTech?

Hi!

Recently, I stumbled upon a tweet discussing the potential applications of AppleVision in neurobiology, neural surgery, and the broader field of MedTech. (https://twitter.com/EvanKirstel/status/1755780001360679004) The prospect fascinated me, prompting a flurry of thoughts and opinions. However, I couldn't help but feel overwhelmed by the staggering price tag attached to it. At $3499, it seems inaccessible to many, myself included.

My initial reaction was one of skepticism. Is AppleVision yet another groundbreaking technology that will be out of reach for those outside privileged circles? There's a lingering suspicion that it might not even be available in regions like 3rd world countries, adding another layer of exclusivity.

Buhhhh, even with all my skepticism, I still have to admit and agree the necessity for risk-takers to push technological boundaries forward. Apple, with its deep pockets and penchant for innovation, seems poised to lead the charge, regardless of individual purchasing decisions.

Some argue that the cost of Apple products often outweighs their practical applications, citing the limited applicability of 3D technology as an example. However, there's a contingent that sees promise in AppleVision, even if the price seems steep by conventional standards.

One major concern is the device's battery life. It's reported to last only two hours, and with the external battery needing to be connected, usability might be compromised. Yet, despite these drawbacks, there's a sense of optimism surrounding the potential for spatial computing and its eventual integration into everyday life.

Apple's track record of turning niche products into mainstream phenomena is undeniable. From the iPhone to the Apple Watch, the company has a knack for shaping entire industries. While some may balk at the closed ecosystem and the fervent loyalty of Apple users, it's hard to deny the company's impact on technological innovation.

In the end, the success of AppleVision remains uncertain. It may find its niche in corporate environments rather than in the hands of the general public. Yet, regardless of its fate, its emergence signals a step forward in the ongoing quest for technological advancement.

As with any groundbreaking technology, only time will tell whether AppleVision lives up to its hype. But for now, it's a captivating glimpse into the future of MedTech and spatial computing, fueled by the relentless drive of one of the world's most influential tech giants.

Thanks for reading,

I personally think the Apple Vision Pro is opening doors to many more innovations as far as spatial computing is involved. It may be costly—which is normal of Apple—but I think it is worth it in many ways than now.

yes, totally agree. I think it's the middle Tech that both individuals and scientists can use for different purposes. Have you hear about that guy using Apple Vision while driving?

I think I found that video about a guy using Apple Vision Pro while driving, but I never watched it. Was that real?

Yeah, it was in the online media news as well. It's funny because, in my opinion, I think it's just cheap marketing and a fake. But who knows?!
