Can't wait for the Apple Vision Pro but can't afford it? Well I have the next best thing!

Action Retro is a Youtuber who does lots of crazy stuff with old PowerPC Macs, from running modified versions of macOS, to running Minecraft on them, and doing things the old Macs were never meant to do. And now his newest creation has arrived, the first PowerPC powered spatial computer: The Apple Vision G3, using a pair of XReals and a iBook G3 he modified to become headless.

I love his channel. I watch his new videos every week.

I think it'd be a good idea to try something similar with a 12" PBG4. It' smaller, faster, and has way better graphics. It's also got to be just as much of a pain to remove the display from one of those as it is a clamshell, lol.

Ok, that was freaking funny....
