For more than three decades, The Simpsons has managed to raise eyebrows with its predictions about the future. Last year, for example, the Titan tragedy, the Barbie hype, and Donald Trump's arrest became reality. The year 2024 has just begun, and something has popped up again, this time the Apple Vision Pro glasses, which were featured in a 2016 episode.
Last week, Apple launched a new product: a mixed reality headset costing 3,200 euros. Vision Pro integrates digital media with the real world and uses physical inputs such as gestures, eye tracking, and speech recognition. Simpsons fans have now noticed that a similar product has taken over Springfield in the 2016 episode “Friends & Family.” Everyone in the town wears these virtual reality sets, causing them to crash into lampposts or fall into sewers. For example, other characters are doing their best and enjoying a virtual outing.
“Another successful prediction from The Simpsons,” one person responds to X, who also shares photos from the episode. Although some are convinced that Apple used the animated series as a creative inspiration.
look. Will these predictions from The Simpsons come true?
