Apple has some pretty wild ideas for Vision Pro's external screen

Apple Vision Pro, the tech giant's first entirely new product line, is expected to be released within just weeks. That means that soon the wait will be over and we'll finally be able to test just how radical, and practical, Apple's spatial computing vision is (or at least those prepared to pay $3,499 will).

We'll also get to see if it includes concepts from a new patent granted in the US, which appears to include ideas for the device's external screen. It shows the front of the headset displaying icons and other images that would reveal what the wearer is working on behind the mask. It could also feature sunglasses and cartoonishly exaggerated eyes to make interacting with someone wearing the Vision Pro feel less creepy (we've helpfully mocked up how that might look above).
