The Simpsons They have generated an unbreakable bond with the community, which strengthens over time. They achieved this not only because of their ability to entertain families, but also because in different chapters they made unexpected predictions. And to lend even greater support to a theory that already seems irrefutable, a new prediction has emerged in the past few hours: They predicted a… Apple Vision Pronew mixed reality glasses (or spatial computing, as the company calls it).
The company was founded in California It usually innovates, although it is making a buzz at this time for its new launch. They are not the first in this field, but they have strange characteristics that make it wrong to mention them as “other VR headsets”.
To put it in context, it's necessary to highlight (or question) the purpose of paying nearly $4,000 for mixed reality glasses that look like very high-tech glasses (for skiing or diving). There the concept of “mixed” is to distinguish it from two existing categories. One, virtual reality glasses, is a segment it dominates Goal With them skylight And htc with Spiritsalthough there are many casual players (Samsung, Google, Lenovo, among others), which are the most famous: a screen in front of our eyes that places us in a fully immersive digital environment. It essentially strips us of that environment, as glasses do not allow us to see the place around us, thus completing the illusion of being in another place.
On the opposite sidewalk, augmented reality glasses appear, such as HoloLens to Microsoft: They allow us to see our entire real environment, and some information appears overlaid on the lenses of the glasses; They are mainly of industrial use, allowing, for example, contextual information to appear next to the machine, 'floating' next to it.

The Simpsons previews are already part of the community, which has been analyzing the seasons for some time looking for more matches. This year, there was already a technological episode that made noise, and was immediately associated with a chapter. In it, the main characters of the series are visualized with these glasses as they walk through the different places where the action takes place (street, family home, bar, etc.).
Every time a prediction appears, fans of this yellow family remember the number of events seen first in the cartoon, and then “in real life.” These are some of the most important cases:
