Magic Leap One AR Headset Finally Arrives-But Not for Everyone

10 August, 2018, 21:13 | Author: Tara Roberts
  • Magic Leap One now available to buy

One early application shipping with the device is called Create, which enables people to virtually change the world around them - at least through the lenses of Magic Leap One.

The headset is more suited to qualified designers and developers.

The system includes the company's Lightwear augmented-reality headset, a tiny Lightpack computer, and a controller.

Magic Leap made a lot of heads turn a few years ago with awesome videos that showed glimpses into the augmented reality technology that it was working on. The company received huge financial investments from companies like Google, bringing its valuation to an incredible $2.3 billion.

There's also a lot of advanced technology in the system: It runs off a Nvidia Parker processor, which includes 6 ARM cores.

Magic Leap has also drawn attention recently from reports that the Field-of-View (FoV) for the device is a relatively unimpressive 40 degrees vertical by 30 degrees horizontal, with a 4:3 aspect ratio. The upcoming Dr. Grordbort's Invaders is an action game involving invading evil robots, developed with Weta Workshop.

Magic Leap first began their long journey in 2014, after successfully raising $2.3 billion United States dollars in funding from sources such as Google.

Wayfair Inc. (NYSE:W), one of the world's largest online destinations for the home, today announced the launch of its mixed-reality (MR) commerce experience on Helio, the first-ever spatial computing web browser by Magic Leap. Magic Leap One is a spatial computing system similar to Microsoft HoloLens.

"I want to thank the whole Magic Leap for the endless hours everyone is putting in in [sic] this last phase before we ship", Abovitz stated a couple of weeks ago. It will use machine learning middleware and the company will make available a software development kit and development tools to access it.

Magic Leap founder Rony Abovitz broke his self-proclaimed radio silence Tuesday night to tweet pictures of a launching rocketship, a Magic Leaper and link to a device with the model number 808, leading some to believe that the Magic Leap One Creator Edition will either launch Wednesday - Aug. 8 - or plans for the launch will be detailed Wednesday.
