The Simpsons once again showed that you need a crystal ball to predict future events. This time, we used the new Apple Vision to predict scenes of people wandering the streets eight years before the product was released.
Apple officially launched its new $3,500 Vision Pro in stores on Friday, and fans posted videos of themselves using the new technology in their daily lives.
The Simpsons, who have an uncanny ability to predict future events, revealed in an episode titled “Friends and Family” released in 2016 that the virtual reality headsets that are taking society by storm are being used by people posting online. showed a similar scene.
Since the series debuted in 1989, The Simpsons has accurately predicted things like Donald Trump’s inauguration, Kamala Harris’ inaugural outfit, Richard Branson’s space flight, and smart watches.
In this episode, Mr. Burns hires Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie to play a virtual real estate family. This will eventually become a technology that is accessible to everyone.
The montage shows all the Simpsons characters wearing virtual reality sets stepping into lampposts and falling into potholes.
Principal Seymour Skinner is having a virtual picnic, and Homer and Marge are lying side by side on the bed, virtually kissing.
Ever since the iPhone maker released the Vision Pro, the experience of using the device has been likened to an episode of Black Mirror.

In San Jose, California, a man wearing white pants and a black shirt recorded himself walking down the street while using a headset, stopping to point at something that could only be seen on the screen.
In London, a video shows a man in a suit wearing a headset walking a robot dog down the street.
The headset was launched with the iPhone 15 family in September, and Apple CEO Tim Cook praised it as a device that “looks at you, but doesn’t watch you.”
“With Vision Pro, you are no longer limited by your display,” he said during last year’s event.
The headset runs on VisionOS, which Apple touts as “the world’s first spatial operating system.”
Apple calls this “spatial computing” because it blends content into the surrounding space.
Spatial computing is a way to describe the intersection between the physical world around us and the virtual world built by technology, allowing humans and machines to manipulate objects and space in unison.
Execution of these tasks often incorporates elements of augmented reality and artificial intelligence.
Apple said there are more than 600 new apps designed specifically for Vision Pro.
“Apple Vision Pro unleashes the imagination of the global developer community, and we are committed to helping them create for this exciting new platform,” said Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. I am inspired by the wide range of spatial experiences that I have created.”
“With over 600 new spatial experiences to explore in the all-new App Store and over 1 million compatible apps across iOS and iPadOS, users will find a wide range of apps that push the boundaries of possibility.”
Users can watch movies and TV shows and play over 100 Apple Arcade games on as big a screen as they want with Vision Pro, which presents a large screen to play content on.
For work purposes, you can use a headset with a trackpad and keyboard to perform tasks similar to using a traditional computer with multiple displays.
Vision Pro can also play back memories from your living room, such as videos of your kids or fun parties you attended.
