Apple Vision Pro: 5 tweets that show it’s a game-changing headset from Mashable

People can finally buy Apple Vision Pro.

With Apple’s fancy new headset making its way into consumers’ hands, all sorts of fun use cases are popping up online. You can find many of them on X (formerly Twitter), where people sharing the various activities one can do with Vision Pro that wouldn’t necessarily be possible with another Apple product — or even another headset.

Here are some of the coolest Vision Pro uses we’ve seen.

Apple Vision Pro: 5 cool things you can do with it

1. Watch sports

Hardcore sports fans understand the pain of not being able to easily watch multiple games at the same time. We’ve all had to look at a laptop and a TV simultaneously. It’s not ideal, but that’s why Apple Vision Pro’s NBA League Pass app seems to be the perfect (if a little expensive) solution.

As shown in YouTuber Brian Tong’s video review, you can have multiple game feeds up at once projected right in front of you — all while monitoring things like player stats on the side. I’m a big proponent of sitting on the couch and watching TV, but my TV can’t do that.

2. Eat

Inverse tech reporter and Mashable alum Ray Wong posted this video showcasing a simple use case for the Vision Pro that I hadn’t considered before: Using the device while eating. Specifically, you can chow down on finger foods and still navigate the Vision Pro UI because, well, you’re not actually touching anything. There’s no danger of smearing grease on a screen or a controller here.

3. Make a little guy skateboard on your appliances

Rodney Mullen’s Skatrix is an AR app that lets you play a little skateboarding game on top of, well, whatever you’ve got lying around. The video does a much better job of showing off how cool that is than I ever could. Just click play.

4. Plan your meals

The recipe organizing and meal-planning app Crouton has a Vision Pro port that seems pretty handy for folks who are into culinary arts.

You can organize your meals over the course of a week, place virtual timers anywhere in your environment, and even use a virtual “size guide” to find out how big something will be on your kitchen countertop. Even if it’s not the future of all food preparation, it does look kind of convenient and cool.

5. Keep a virtual pet

Lastly, the app Wisp World lets you keep a cute little forest sprite on your desk (or anywhere else). You can simply stare at and admire it, or interact with it. It’s basically like a houseplant, but cooler. This one isn’t quite as revolutionary as some of the other applications on this list, but looks pretty entertaining, if nothing else.
