To do this, they used sounds and visual responses. For example, to as you get closer to the keys, they will become brighter. This creates a sense of proximity that serves as a guide for the user’s fingers.
When your finger touches the virtual keyboard buttons, they quickly change state. when making a sound with a spatial sense it adds to the experience.
Apple Vision Pro will let you interact directly with your virtual environment.
In addition to being able to directly interact with the virtual keyboard projected onto the Apple Vision Pro, you can also do so with the rest of the system. Actually, the main way to control the interface is based on air piercing. You just need to look at the specific dot you want to select, be it an app or a button, and press with your thumb and forefinger. An action that in this case replaces touching the iPhone or iPad screen.
This action will allow you to control your Apple Vision Pro system in a variety of ways.. From scrolling through a web page to drawing like you’re in front of a whiteboard. In fact, the demo shows in detail what the last example would look like.
