  • Videos appearing to show drivers using the Vision Pro at the wheel are circulating online.

  • The sightings have alarmed some road safety experts.

  • Apple's user guide for the headset says to avoid using "it while operating a moving vehicle."

Apple's Vision Pro is officially out in the world, and some buyers have been spotted using the headset in some odd places.

Perhaps most alarmingly, at least two people have been filmed using the headset while driving.

One video shared on X appears to show a Tesla Cybertruck driver wearing the Vision Pro and controlling the headset with his hands lifted off the wheel.

Another widely circulated video shows a Tesla owner filming himself using the Vision Pro while driving on a highway. The driver appears to have a run-in with police at the end of the video.

Apple has stressed the importance of using the device in a "safe manner." The headset's user guide explicitly states to avoid using "it while operating a moving vehicle, or use it while intoxicated or otherwise impaired."

The sightings have alarmed some road safety experts.

While the headset doesn't leave users completely blind to the world around them due to Apple's "spatial computing" that blends virtual content into the user's natural surroundings, the device is still a distraction.

Cathy Chase, the president of Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety, told The Telegraph the headset had no place behind the wheel of a car.

"Any behavior that takes a driver's focus off the task of driving is dangerous and irresponsible and puts all of us at serious risk of death or injury, especially vulnerable road users like pedestrians," she said.

Users have been spotted wearing the headset in other public places, including the gym and the subway. One video even appears to show a man crossing the road while using the mixed-reality tech.
