Hopefully you do realise that Nathie was just sharing a clip of the WWDC talk (starting at 13:16)? This is not another independent source, but literally the exact same information as in the WWDC talk.

If you believe that every Rec Room demo makes it into a full release, I have great news for you: Rec Room will support tobii eye trackers! Here is the "proof" (from 2017): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6jg5FKy-WY

And to be clear: I don't know whether the full VR version of Rec Room is coming to the Apple Vision Pro. Maybe it does, maybe it doesn't. I haven't seen anything yet that would convince me either way.


What I find amusing is all the questions that have surfaced about using controllers. If user's controllers have Bluetooth, then its a simple matter of pairing. Apple isn't saying anything about controllers like they're not mentioning anything about VR. They're guiding the discussion to XR and hands-free.


Rec Room is "leading metaverse platform"? Really???
If true this is very sad for metaverse :)
It has cruder avatars than minecraft. Metaverse is supposed to be a place where you can be what you dream of. Not a place to represent yourself as a box with no legs and stand there talking about business.
