This is the pro version for developers. It is rumored to cost $3000. Next year, the Apple Vision will come out, and that will be the consumer version. It will probably cost $1500 or $2000.

In the background, Apple is still developing an AR device with the form of normal glasses. But that is 5 or 10 years in the future still.

I watched the keynote live and it was terrifying. I don't wanna be the basic bitch saying "Black Mirror". But damn. It was definetly a "train appears to escape from the movie screen" type moment.

>mainly for porn
In consumer tech yes, and fringe entertainment like some videogames for those that can afford it."Enthusiasts".

But in production, this is the beginning of transhumanist capitalism as depicted in cyberpunk dystopias. Unlike individual "enthusiasts" businesses can get better deals and profit margins off implementing this technology , which, under the guise of "accesibility" and "productivity" "job creation" through reducing qualifications is just another step in taking agency from workers. If you think nagging managers and tight quotas or app slavery is bad, wait until every worker is required (and liable for) one or more augmented reality devices that control their every second on the clock like a human automaton.

The advances in AI do not need to be implemented into robots, YOU will be the robots long before that. There is no need for Elon's brain chip, though some version of permanent augments will come sooner or later.

In a similar vein to how ford vehicles can now lock themselves and drive to the nearest junkyard if people dont pay their bills, we should support this technology purely because it makes life more miserable for westerners. Imagine how low the birth rate will drop if people walk around with porn playing in their apple device or playing AR mario and collecting coins for doing work. Sure they will be more alone than ever and probably have a carrot and stick directing them to work more to release more dopamine at their apple neuralink microchip's behest, but that is a sacrifice we must make to rid the world of the evils of western civilization; real reality will be the superpower of JDPON, because they cannot afford such fancy gadgets and will therefore survive the oppressive mechanisms directed against westoids.

Yes, it is.

Honestly, the whole concept of AR is BS, they cannot even polish the VR experience. "Hey, look, we have AR even though you can barely even interact with it through our proprietary walled garden operating system!" Such a waste of money. We need wireless hi-res OLED VR for GNU/Linux that isn't riddled with spyware, affordable VR gloves and shoes and a proper fucken treadmill that doesn't cost your kidney and that actually scrolls when you move.

The entire proprietary hardware industry is all about shiny new things without actually improving on what we already have. That's why I respect the libre software devs, they improve on the already existing technology, using their talents where they're needed. Absolute chads.

A "challenge" that is easily solved with collaborating on improving one hardware design instead of wasting all the money on marketing, lobbying the state and patenting oxygen to create a teeny-tiny iteration on what essentially amounts to a glorified useless toy.

At first I thought it's Will Smith advertising it, LOL.

Watched the trailer. This headset has its own mindfulness app. Really? REALLY!? A mindfulness app!? That's a fucking joke. Those darn new age millenials who know nothing about Buddhism. Mindfulness is awareness of your thoughts and actions, not a sitting meditation. You don't NEED an app to meditate, just sit down and BREATHE! Jesus Christ.

Two 4K micro-OLED displays? That's based unironically. Bravo, Apple. You've out-done even Sony. Still dependent on Apple's proprietary software though, cringe.

So. Basically, the only good things about this headsets are size, transparent projection glass (although it's probably a huge privacy issue) and 4K micro-OLED screens. That's it. Everything else is TRASH! Like Windows 11 or Oculus Go.

This guy is a massive desperate grifter.

The technology here isn’t new. The linger cursor (that’s the old name for the eye navigation) is probably low key to people who’ve never tried to use this bullshit for something other than jacking off the most important aspect for normal style use.

The mental state detection is an elusive kind of language, it’s middle manager speak for divining intent. Pretty necessary for linger cursor work. Early implementations using those goofy glasses you’d get punched in a bar for wearing had this problem where the user would be reading along, get lost in thought or focus on something out of plane (other than the screen) and the system would correctly register a linger and click on something.

To figure out if you e got a user that intends to click on something you need a biofeedback loop. It’s not just a feedback loop because there’s an organism integrated into it. It’s not necessarily a skinnerbox because there doesn’t have to be a skinner in the loop.

So this absolute psychopath isn’t actually describing their pivotal role in creating the ending of a clockwork orange, because they didn’t actually do that.

What they’re trying to do is make prospective employers think they did so they can get money.

I was talking about both. In case of indie devs it's either self-employed or employers (not talking about proles here). In case of Linus he is an employer.

I'm not sure then how he became a full bourg if he got his capital from his wife (LMAO).

 No.20050

Perhaps not spot on the differece, but I think employing others is the cutoff on becoming full bourg, while I question if self-employed / freelance / petit bourg should even be a subset of it. It could be useful to flesh it out as it's own thing entirely given the gig economy that has arose in the last few years. Being unable to secure employee status doesn't seem like a privelage of elevated class to me.

>Perhaps not spot on the differece, but I think employing others is the cutoff on becoming full bourg
Marx doesn't make a distinction between the self-employed petty bourgs and the employing petty bourgs. What he does say is that petty bourgs still do some actual labor (usually occupying the position of a manager in the case of employers).

>while I question if self-employed / freelance / petit bourg should even be a subset of it

Freelance certainly not. Freelancers are precarious proletarians (or precarians for short) who are often hired as "contractors" so they can be denied all the benefits proles with the fixed employment status get and so they cannot unionize.

I myself am starting to think that liberals might be right about the PMC, with the top-managers often having petty bourgeois class interests. They technically cannot be considered petty bourgeoisie because they don't own the means of production but perhaps it is a case of petty bourgeoisie submitting to large bourgeoisie in exchange for economic stability or whatever. I don't exactly know how the process of appointing top-managers goes.

Class analysis is fun to do even if you're an egoist anarchist, LMAO. And we haven't even brought up Weberian class analysis, oh, boy. Socioeconomics.

I recommend reading Olin Wright. He synthesizes both Marx and Weber to create a class analysis that accounts for the Weberian insights while preserving the Marxian core of basing class analysis on the control over the means of production.

>What you describe sucks but we are already there, since the information gain relative to the scanner in your hand that is already tracking your movement is tiny IMHO.
Yes but the control is less tight. AR could potentially be the second coming of the assembly line, by turning every manual job, from retail to construction into an AI supervised instruction following activity that puts to shame dehumanizing warehouse protocols and micromanaging bosses. You don't have to drill the workers and keep them alienated. You just have them follow the instructions on display and have the computer make up productivity quotas automatically.

A $3500 device created by a company that is known for its love of proprietary, walled gardens. A "professional" level price tag without the features and resources to make it viable and everything demonstrated is the most basic, consumer focused "we may as well blew up an iPhone into your field of vision" kind of crap? Yeah…no. I have no doubt it will sell to the Apple faithful but the only potential benefit is inspiring other companies to answer with something comparable and better likely at a lesser price and ideally an open platform. Right now the only VR platform worth a damn in this regard is Valve's open source SteamVR/OpenVR with nearly everyone else with a platform trying to lock things down, like Meta-Facebockulous, or making hardware that works on/piggybacks upon other platform.

As far as "Augmented Reality" is concerned it does have a possible future but it will not be really widespread until it can be contained in something similar to eyeglasses as opposed to a full on headset. Outside of that it will be somewhat niche or very specific circumstances, especially with "professional tier" hardware. The other issue with AR is that of privacy, data mining, and for whom and what benefit is all that information on the screen ; much like VR itself it can be measuring YOU as well, but in theory AR is a focus outside the digital world making it even more of a concern.

Apple in the 90s almost went bankrupt because they developed two advanced Operating Systems (Taligent and Copland) both ending up getting scrapped along with Be Inc being formed of Apple software engineers that left to make their own OS, taking Apple's best talent. Then you have Apple cannibalizing their own sales with too many models on the market at the same time that confused the potential buyer.
