Meta Quest vs Apple Vision Pro is pioneering the AR/VR market right now. Both are rivals and in what could be the future of computing, it seems the approach being adopted by Apple and Meta are quite different.
After the launch of the Apple Vision Pro, here’s what Mark Zuckerberg the founder of Meta has commented:
Apple finally announced its headset, so I want to talk about that for a second. I was really curious to see what they were gonna ship. And obviously, I haven’t seen it yet, so I’ll learn more as we get to play with it and see what happens and how people use it.Mark | Founder and CEO of Meta
From what I’ve seen initially, I’d say the good news is that there is no kind of magical solutions that they have to any of the constraints on laws of physics that our teams haven’t already explored and thought of. They went with a higher resolution display, and between that and all the technology they put in there to power it, it costs seven times more and now requires so much energy that now you need a battery and a wire attached to it to use it.Mark | Founder and CEO of Meta
They made that design trade-off and it might make sense for the cases that they’re going for. But look, I think that their announcement really showcases the difference in the values and the vision that our companies bring to this in a way that I think is really important. We innovate to make sure that our products are as accessible and affordable to everyone as possible, and that is a core part of what we do. And we have sold tens of millions of Quests.Mark | Founder and CEO of Meta
More importantly, our vision for the metaverse and presence is fundamentally social. It’s about people interacting in new ways and feeling closer in new ways. Our device is also about being active and doing things. By contrast, every demo that they showed was a person sitting on a couch by themself. I mean, that could be the vision of the future of computing, but like, it’s not the one that I want.Mark | Founder and CEO of Meta
There’s a real philosophical difference in terms of how we’re approaching this. And seeing what they put out there and how they’re going to compete just made me even more excited and in a lot of ways optimistic that what we’re doing matters and is going to succeed. But it’s going to be a fun journey.Mark | Founder and CEO of Meta
Before the launch of the Apple Vision Pro, Meta had launched the Quest 3 which cost about 7x lesser than the Apple Vision Pro. Meta Quest vs Apple Vision Pro could soon become the Android vs iOS comparison in the nearest future.
