The Apple Vision Pro was released on February 2, and with it came many viral videos of people using it in all sorts of funny or incredibly dangerous situations. Walking down the street with one strapped to your noggin might be a cool novelty, but there's nothing worth bragging about wearing one behind the wheel. No matter how much you trust the device.
Some might say they aren't surprised that a few Tesla owners are "driving" while wearing Apple's latest $3,500 AR/VR headset, the Apple Vision Pro. Well, Apple doesn't call it a headset or even touch the term "goggles." The marketing department thought it best to name the device a spatial computer. But no matter what Tim Cook and his tech scientists call it, you shouldn't wear one while behind the wheel of a 6,799 lbs. or 3,084 kg Tesla Cybertruck.

The first sighting happened on February 3 when one guy decided to "live in the future," as they say on social media. He took his Tesla Model Y for a ride while using Tesla's self-driving (FSD) mode. Thankfully, nothing happened besides the driver getting pulled over by the police.

Not even a day after that, another viral video hit the ex-Twitter-sphere. A person "driving" a Cybertruck was spotted, and people have been reposting it on X in droves. The video is too short to see the outcome, but hopefully, nothing tragic occured.

However, not everything is negatively related to these two brands or products. Others, like X user @ianzelbo, have also been sharing videos of their experience ordering a Tesla from the official website.

There's a certain appealing novelty to it all, but after that wears off in about two weeks, you'll discover you're still doing the same thing you'd be doing on your phone, tablet, laptop, or whatever smart device you have.

Another example comes from another Twitter account, @LinusEkenstam, where he shows how he locks and unlocks his car from the Apple Vision Pro. It's basically mirroring the Tesla app from his iPhone and displays that mid-air. Another pretty nifty feature to use a few times, but why wear this not-headset on your head just to get it off before you start driving?

While they say, "There's no such thing as bad publicity," I can't imagine Apple's marketing, PR, and legal departments are over the moon seeing their product used so recklessly. If a technical failure hits either Tesla's FSD software or Apple's screen for any reason, the damage a 6,799 lbs. Cybertruck going over 60 mph could cause in traffic is terrifying in the least.

The $96,000 Cyberbeast, for example, has three electric motors that can produce 845 horsepower (857 ps) with 686 lb-ft or 930 Nm of torque. This thing is no joke; it can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.6 seconds, which can turn into a wrecking ball under the "right" conditions.
