For a moment back there, it seemed like all anybody could talk about was Apple Vision Pro. The AR headset launched to much fanfare in February, accompanied by all manner of weird and wonderful candid shots of early adopters wearing the thing in public. But now that the dust is settling, the people are delving deeper into the inner workings of the device itself.

An X user has CT scanned Apple's headset, along with two Meta Quest alternatives. And not only does the footage provide a fascinating glimpse at the inner machinations of each device, but it also highlights some significant differences between them.
