Vision Pro Goggles Are Not Safe While Driving a Tesla, U.S. Says

Connected media – Linked media

Is this the future? A world in which people can’t step away from the digital realm long enough to focus solely on everyday tasks such as socializing or exercising?

Eric Decker, a YouTube and TikTok creator who goes by the name Airrack, posted a video poking fun at an “average day for an Apple Vision Pro owner,” showing him wearing the headset while lifting weights at the gym, getting his hair cut, going through airport security, walking down a street and even showering. (The Vision Pro is not waterproof.)

“I truly feel most of these videos are skits,” Mr. Lentini said. “You can just tell.”

Still, skit or not, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said on Tuesday that distracted driving is no joke. In 2021, more than 3,500 people in the United States were killed in crashes involving distracted driving, and more than 360,000 were injured, the agency said.

“There are no fully autonomous vehicles available for sale today,” the agency said.

Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Tuesday. Apple declined to comment about the videos, but referred to safety guidance on its website about how to properly use Vision Pro.

“Never use the device while operating a moving vehicle, bicycle, heavy machinery, or in any other situations requiring attention to safety,” the company says.
