CT scans of VR glasses: Apple Vision Pro, Meta Quest Pro and Meta Quest 3 in comparison

The company Lumafield has recently started offering a comprehensive 3D view in three different VR glasses. Thanks to detailed CT scans, the individual components and their arrangement within the casings of the Apple Vision Pro, Meta Quest Pro and Meta Quest 3 can be viewed. The whole thing works on the company's website, in the form of a YouTube video and in the Voyager app, where you can explore the 3D scans independently. All three devices are interesting because they sometimes offer very different solutions for the same task or problem.

In addition to the Meta Quest 3 and Meta Quest Pro, the Apple Vision Pro also underwent CT scans to create a detailed and multi-layered 3D model. In this way, individual components and their interaction become visible in a non-destructive manner. Image: Lumafield.com

Apple Vision Pro and Meta devices as a three-dimensional CT scan

Im Article by Lumafield The way the three devices are viewed using the 3D models is referred to as “non-destructive teardown”. It's not primarily about comparing the three headsets with each other in order to then make a purchase recommendation. Rather, it shows which components are used for which task. In addition, individual problem solutions are analyzed.

How does the necessary technology fit into the relatively small housing? Which sensors are used for detection and interaction with the environment? How is the passthrough video realized? Where is the battery located? How is the audio system structured? How is the heat from the processors dissipated? These and a few other questions are answered by analyzing the individual scans. Similarities and differences are noticeable.

It is also highlighted - especially in the article Video – the different approaches to the choice of technical components and their use in the VR glasses. While Apple relies on proprietary technology with many self-developed individual parts and chips, Meta uses more general individual parts that are available on the market for a larger range of devices. For example, Snapdragon chips from Qualcomm instead of the M2 and R1 chips from Apple.

Apple also offers the only device of the three whose internal design is influenced by the curved exterior. Although the Meta devices also have curved cases, the technology inside is arranged on conventionally designed, i.e. straight, circuit boards. Instead, Apple uses flexible materials for a curved board with components placed at different angles. The price difference between the devices is almost self-explanatory.

Best solution for VR gaming: Meta Quest 3

Among the three devices - Apple Vision Pro, Meta Quest Pro and Meta Quest 3 - the latter is currently the best solution for gaming matters. Especially since only the Meta headsets are currently available in this country. The Apple Vision Pro, which is several times more expensive, is still a long time coming. Compared to the Meta Quest Pro, the Meta Quest 3 benefits from another year of development and therefore from more modern technology. If you have any questions about the device and its use, Jens can certainly answer them - feel free to ask in the forum.
