Steven Pinker on Apple’s Vision Pro

Professor of psychology on the science and history behind the Vision Pro.

When Johnstone Family professor of psychology Steven Pinker heard about Apple's new virtual reality headset, he knew he had to try it. At Harvard, Pinker studies the psychology of vision. But outside of work, he is a passionate stereo photographer who seeks to recreate three dimensions within a two-dimensional picture. In this filmed interview, Pinker talks about the long history of simulating three dimensions and why this headline-making product beckons the future.
