Anand Mahindra on man wearing Apple Vision Pro

In a world where technology often blurs the line between reality and virtuality, a recent video has sparked quite the conversation. Picture this: a man, cruising through a mall on a scooter, but with a twist—he's wearing the Apple Vision Pro VR headset. Yes, you heard that right.

While the scene might sound like something out of a sci-fi movie, it's very much real and has caught the eye of none other than Anand Mahindra, the Indian business tycoon known for his keen observations on social trends.

Reacting to the video, Mahindra shared his thoughts on X (formerly Twitter), painting a picture of a future that might not be as dreamy as tech enthusiasts imagine.

"Completely plugged in. And yet, Completely disconnected," he mused, suggesting that such advancements could lead to a "nightmare" scenario where technology takes precedence over real human connections.


"Completely plugged in… And yet, Completely disconnected. If this is the future, then it’s a nightmare…." he wrote.

The video, originally posted by Robert Pointer on Instagram, showcases the Apple Vision Pro, a mixed-reality headset that's been the talk of the tech world since its release in the United States.

While the global launch date remains a mystery, the excitement around it is palpable. However, Mahindra's reaction brings to light a critical conversation about the balance between technological innovation and the essence of human interaction.

Netizens reactions

As the video went viral, netizens chimed in with mixed reactions. Some shared Mahindra's concerns about a future dominated by machines, while others expressed excitement about the seamless integration of virtual reality into our daily lives.

"It is not. The device is going to get smaller with time until the virtual reality "naturally" blends with our every day life I'm excited 🎉," a user wrote.

"Exactly sir, This feels so weird The future will have less human connect and more connect to machines 🥲," another wrote.
