Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has taken a personal swipe at rival company Apple’s new headset.

Introduction:

The recent release of the Vision Pro mixed reality headset by Apple made waves in the tech world, with celebrities like Diplo and T-Pain flaunting its “passthrough” feature, allowing users to see their surroundings while wearing the headset. 

However, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, has taken a direct stance, asserting that Meta’s own Quest 3 headset is superior in every aspect.

The Passthrough Feature:

Passthrough technology, utilized by both the Vision Pro and Quest 3, enables users to view their environment through cameras on the headset. 

This feature enhances user experience, allowing for activities like walking or exercising while wearing the headset.

Meta’s Technological Advancements:

Meta has dedicated nearly a decade to refining passthrough technology, which is also present in competing products like Sony’s PlayStation VR 2. 

Zuckerberg emphasized Meta’s commitment to innovation, highlighting the superiority of the Quest 3 over the Vision Pro.

Zuckerberg’s Assertion:

In a video addressing the comparison between the two headsets, Zuckerberg unequivocally stated that the Quest 3 is “the better product, period.” 

He expressed surprise at the widespread assumption that the Vision Pro would outperform the Quest 3 due to its association with Apple and higher price point.

Value Proposition:

Despite the Vision Pro’s premium price tag, Zuckerberg argued that the Quest 3 offers superior value, citing its affordability and comparable performance. 

Many users have echoed this sentiment, with some expressing disappointment in the Vision Pro’s physical limitations relative to its cost.

Conclusion:

Zuckerberg’s firm stance underscores Meta’s confidence in the Quest 3’s capabilities and value proposition. 

As discussions around mixed reality headsets continue to evolve, Meta remains steadfast in its commitment to providing cutting-edge technology at an accessible price point.
