The Simpsons predicted Apple Vision Pro hype eight years ago

It looks like The Simpsons have nailed another prediction.

The animated comedy has quite a reputation for seeing the future - and this time has been credited with foreseeing the rise of the Apple Vision Pro.

In recent days, videos of people walking around in the much-hyped virtual reality headset have been going viral on social media.

But, it looks like virtual reality came to Springfield first - way back in 2016.

In the second episode of season 22, entitled “Friends and Family”, Mr. Burns hires Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie to play his live-in virtual reality family as a trial run for a new headset.

The gadget is then released to the public and all hell breaks loose in a hilarious montage clip.
