San Diego Police Department cautions people about Apple Vision Pro

In response to a viral video that showed a guy crossing the street while wearing an Apple Vision Pro headset, San Diego police are encouraging the public to "cross streets the old-fashioned way" out of caution.

San Diego Police Department wrote, "While we’re all for exploring new dimensions and technology, let’s remember the importance of pedestrian safety. Keep those virtual experiences on the sidewalk, folks, and let’s cross streets the old-fashioned way — with our eyes wide open to the real world, unobstructed and without distractions!”

In the video, a man with green shorts and a white puffer coat makes gestures with his augmented reality goggles on. He crosses the street at a green light after walking past San Diego police officers who seem to be arresting someone at the intersection's corner.

The video appears to at least show the man looking both ways before crossing. Users of the Apple Vision Pro can see through objects in the real world and have aspects of augmented reality placed onto their field of vision.

The San Diego Police Department reshared the video of the distracted pedestrian on Instagram. The incident, according to the agency, had them pausing in bewilderment.”
