Apple's latest Vision Pro update improves the look of 'Persona' avatars

<p>A key feature of Apple's Vision Pro VR, er, <a data-i13n="cpos:1;pos:1" href="">spatial computing[/url] headset is <a data-i13n="cpos:2;pos:1" href="">Personas[/url] that that lets people see a digital version of themselves during calls, Zoom meetings, etc. At launch, they looked a bit creepy, but Apple has improved them considerably in the latest release, according to <a data-i13n="cpos:3;pos:1" href="">posts on X[/url] spotted by <a data-i13n="cpos:4;pos:1" href="">MacRumors[/url]. They're now more realistic, so users look less like impressionist paintings and more like humans.&nbsp;</p>
<p>Once the visionOS 1.1 update is installed, you'll be prompted to recapture your Persona to get the "latest appearance updates" — this is <a data-i13n="cpos:5;pos:1" href="">apparently done[/url] in part with the headset off and pointing at your face. Most users feel the updated Personas are better, and visually, they look less blurry and a touch more realistic, plus the proportions seem better.</p>

Is it still uncanny and creepy? Yeah, but I don't look like Stalin anymore.</p>— Snazzy Labs (@SnazzyLabs) February 6, 2024

<p>As a reminder, Personas are a digital representing of the users created by data from the headset's sensors and a new machine learning algorithm. They're designed to be an "authentic spatial representation" of someone that shows their facial expressions and hand movements — so you won't be a dork in a mask on group calls.</p>
<p>If you need to do that, though, a similar feature called EyeSight shows other people a digital version of your eyes when you're wearing the Vision Pro. Apple still calls Personas a beta feature and provides <a data-i13n="elm:affiliate_link;sellerN:;elmt:;cpos:6;pos:1" href=";pageId=1p-autolink&amp;featureId=text-link&amp;custData=eyJzb3VyY2VOYW1lIjoiV2ViLURlc2t0b3AtVmVyaXpvbiIsImxhbmRpbmdVcmwiOiJodHRwczovL3N1cHBvcnQuYXBwbGUuY29tL2VuLXVzL0hUMjE0MDAyIiwiY29udGVudFV1aWQiOiIyYTkzZmUzZS04YWY0LTRkMTktOTgyOS1hMTBjMDM5YTFjNTkifQ&amp;signature=AQAAAV3-ckj-ujWdQS9KY5kWUJ0zxZCyfat9asWTFODIPYUN&amp;" class="rapid-with-clickid" data-original-link="">detailed instructions[/url] to get the best results.</p>This article originally appeared on Engadget at
