Testing out the newly released Meta Quest Pro

This is the first enterprise-focused version of the mobile VR headset range by Meta. It's three times the price tag of the Quest 2, with only a slight bump in processor, but the killer feature is the full colour passthrough. What's the fuss about? Well, it allows you to create mixed-reality experiences where you can superimpose computer graphics on top of the real world.

Key Takeaways?

It's a big step in the right direction, but it's not there yet. The low-quality, grainy video feed lets it down: it still feels like a POC (proof of concept) product. The latency (the speed in which it delivers the video) is good, but the slight lag is noticeable and would not translate well in some professional use cases. Although it utilises pancake lenses in an attempt to slim down, there's still no getting around the bulky form factor.
