As part of the Apple Vision Pro Headset ecosystem and its new visionOS, Apple Vision Codes are expected to enhance user interactivity and engagement. While specifics regarding the headset's interaction with these codes remain undisclosed, it is anticipated that the Apple Vision Pro Headset will be capable of scanning and processing these codes, providing users with a seamless AR experience.

Apple Vision Codes have the potential to democratize AR experiences, making them accessible to a wider audience. Unlike traditional AR experiences, which require app downloads or website visits, Apple Vision Codes allow users to access content by scanning codes directly with the Apple Vision Pro Headset.

This streamlined approach can enhance user convenience and potentially revolutionize shopping by enabling customers to preview products in their home environment before making a purchase.

Meta Quest AR QR Codes

Regarded as the direct rival of Apple's Vision Pro, the Meta Quest, which was recently released in its version 3, is also anticipated to soon support the scanning of Meta Quest QR Codes for displaying AR experiences. At AR Code, we have already adapted our technology to be compatible with the Meta Quest headsets 2, Pro and 3. The results are impressive, as demonstrated in the following video. We plan to soon integrate a QR Code scanning feature to automatically enable all 3D experiences created on the AR Code platform to be scannable by these Meta headsets.
