Unveiling the inner workings of the Apple Vision Pro headset

Published

on

The renowned repair website iFixit has provided tech enthusiasts with an in-depth teardown of the Apple Vision Pro mixed reality headset.

iFixit’s meticulous disassembly of the Vision Pro has revealed a complex array of internal components, including a multitude of cameras, sensors, fans, and lens motors.

Unsurprisingly, the teardown suggests that opening and repairing the headset may prove to be a challenging task.

Commenting on their findings, iFixit noted, “The EyeSight system appears to be a potential Achilles’ heel in terms of repairability due to its numerous points of failure for a somewhat eerie feature.

Significant wins

However, we must acknowledge Apple’s efforts, as the easily replaceable speakers and battery represent significant wins for repairability.”

The Vision Pro is powered by Apple’s cutting-edge M2 chip, boasting an 8-core CPU, a 10-core GPU, a formidable 16-core Neural Engine, and a generous 16GB of unified memory.

Other notable specifications include storage options of up to 1TB and the introduction of the innovative R1 chip.

The R1 chip efficiently processes data from an extensive array of sensors, including 12 cameras, five sensors, and six microphones, ensuring that the headset delivers an immersive mixed reality experience.

Internal design

Wallpaper* magazine had previously provided an exclusive glimpse into the Vision Pro’s internal design, featuring an image showcasing the intricacies of the device.

In an interview with Wallpaper*, Apple’s Vice President of Software Design, Alan Dye, and Vice President of Hardware Design, Richard Howarth, offered insights into the headset’s development.

Richard Howarth explained that Apple had meticulously designed the Vision Pro with an emphasis on comfort and aesthetics, incorporating “flexible materials and soft textures” like the Solo Knit Band.

This design philosophy aimed to ensure that users not only experience physical comfort while wearing the headset but also feel at ease wearing it in social settings.

In the world of artificial intelligence, Nvidia has emerged as a titan, its semiconductor designs becoming indispensable for an array of tech companies.

Led by the visionary Jensen Huang, Nvidia’s stunning ascent has propelled it to a valuation of $2 trillion, marking a milestone in the tech universe.

Yet, this meteoric rise has also made Nvidia a prime target, with competitors and even its own customers vying to chip away at its dominance.

Huang, known for his philosophy of living in the present, has steered Nvidia through a transformative journey.

From its humble beginnings over three decades ago to its current stature as an AI powerhouse, Huang’s leadership has been instrumental.

Nvidia’s chips, originally tailored for computer graphics, found a new purpose in training AI systems, becoming indispensable for tech giants like Microsoft and Tesla.

However, Nvidia’s dominance has not gone unchallenged.

Competition rises

Rivals like Intel and Advanced Micro Devices have ramped up their AI chip offerings, while tech behemoths such as Amazon, Google, and Microsoft are developing their own in-house designs.

The announcement of a deal between Microsoft and Intel to produce custom chips underscores the intensifying competition in the AI chip market.

Despite Nvidia’s formidable position, Huang remains vigilant about securing the company’s future.

He is exploring opportunities in other industries, investing in startups leveraging Nvidia’s technology, and advocating for governments to build their own AI infrastructure. Embracing a startup-like culture, Huang fosters an environment where innovation thrives, constantly pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.

Nvidia’s journey reflects the dynamism of the AI landscape. As the company continues to shape the future of technology, its resilience in the face of mounting competition reaffirms its status as a pioneering force in the world of AI.
