For years, Apple has said a touchscreen on an iMac or even a MacBook didn’t make sense. That your arms would get tired.

So why is it now ergonomically okay now to be holding your arms up in the air to use a VisionPro?

Is the OS designed to prevent prolonged arm time? What has changed?

You don’t have to hold your arms up in the air. A big part of the uniqueness of the UI is using your eyes as the cursor and keeping your hands at your side and tapping your fingers together for the action. I think they even have the ability to not use your hands at all for accessibility.

You should rest your arms on your lap. That's what the downcast cameras/sensor for.

Yep, just keep your hands wherever they're comfortable. This was discussed during the WWDC event (starting at 1:26:37).
