Apple's $3,500 Vision Pro camera hit the shelves on Friday, and one user shared a video of what not to do while wearing the new tech — driving a Tesla hands-free.

Resolution he found himself seeing blue lights in his vision.

On Friday, the same day as the virtual reality headset's launch, a user named Dante posted a video on X – formerly known as Twitter – showing himself driving a Tesla while wearing the new technology.

The video shows him wearing gray pants and a black long-sleeved shirt while driving his car on a highway in an unknown location with the Apple Vision Pro covering his eyes.

At one point, he takes both hands off the steering wheel and appears to touch a screen that can only be seen on the virtual headset.

The 25-second video posted on Twitter shows him being stopped by police. Dante sits in the parking lot as the cop car and its lights turn on behind him.

It is not known where he was driving or which police station stopped him. His Twitter account says he lives in Palo Alto, California.

The Apple Vision Pro safety information page on the company's website explicitly prohibits the use of the headset while driving.

“Never use Apple Vision Pro while operating a moving vehicle, bicycle, heavy machinery, or in any other situations that require attention to safety,” the site said.

The headset was launched alongside the iPhone 15 family in September. It's five times more expensive than rival Meta Quest 3, but Apple sold out pre-orders for the device on January 19 – 200,000 units are reserved.

While the headset starts at around $3,500, customers can purchase upgrades like storage and prescription accessories for $149.

It runs VisionOS, which Apple describes as “the world's first spatial operating system.”

Apple calls it “spatial computing” because it integrates content into the space around you.

Spatial computing is a way of describing the intersection between the physical world around us and the virtual world created by technology while enabling humans and machines to manipulate objects and spaces harmoniously.
