The Vision Pro has officially launched and who better to discuss it and the new "spatial computing" era than friend of the pod, Kotaro Fujita. In this episode we attempt to answer two important questions: What is Vision Pro and What can you do with it? We discuss what it's like to use the product, what software will be available at launch, and what new kinds of experiences early adopters may be able to try out. We also explore whether Vision Pro and devices like it could lead to even more device-centric isolation and the special parenting concerns that come with yet another digital distraction in a developing child's life. We also speculate out loud about how "AI" tools and "spatial computing" may complement each other in future devices. Near the end, we go on some amusing tangents describing the experiences of explaining to kids what life was like in the "old days" of home phones and Blockbuster video. There are some great insights in this episode for anyone wondering what all the Vision Pro excitement is about.
