Tesla owners should maintain their eyes on the road amid viral videos of drivers wearing Apple’s VR headset.

US Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg stated on X (previously Twitter) that all automobiles demand “at all times” driver engagement.

However, one motorist claimed his video was a joke.

Apple and Tesla were asked for comment.

The Apple headgear is worn by drivers in driverless cars in YouTube videos.

Pete Buttigieg reposted: “Reminder – ALL advanced driver assistance systems available today require the human driver to be in control and fully engaged in the driving task at all times.”

Another video taken on the day the Apple Vision Pro was released shows a guy being pulled over by police in a Tesla while wearing the headset.

He “drove using a headgear for 30-40 seconds”, according to Gizmodo, and called it a “skit” with buddies.

Apple’s user handbook advises against wearing its headset while traveling, while Tesla advises “upholding ownership and liability for your car,” even in autonomous mode.

The Apple Vision Pro set cost $3,499 (£2,749) in the US on February 2. The UK release date is unknown.

Some settings allow seeing through the glass, although driving would be severely limited.

Instead of naming it virtual reality, the corporation calls it “spatial computing”.

“Don’t label your app interaction as AR, VR, XR, or MR,” it advised developers in a blog post.

Online videos show people wearing the headgear on the New York metro and at the gym.
