Magic Leap One release date, price and features

First Look at Magic Leap One Creator Edition

The ambitious United States startup has been secretly developing a set of revolutionary augmented reality technologies for at least three years now, attracting not only media interest, wild rumors and conflicting speculation, but also large investments from companies like Google, Qualcomm and Alibaba.

Magic Leap announced its first product on its website, magicleap.com https://www.magicleap.com where visitors can see a demonstration. Magic Leap says that the headset's "lightfield photonics generate digital light at different depths and blend seamlessly with natural light to produce lifelike digital objects that coexist in the real world". The system consists of a small external computer called a Lightpack, as well as a handheld controller in addition to the glasses. The company hasn't released detailed specifics of their functions, but the frame around the lenses features eight sensors on the front of the Magic Leap One headset, which provide spatial tracking (provided by Dacuda's 3D scanning technology), hand tracking, and object awareness.

Today, Magic Leap revealed the first images and details of the product it plans to ship in the coming months.

Magic Leap's site lists several use cases for the headset, including web browsing and shopping, opening up multiple virtual monitors and telepresence. The technology is created to interact with "multiple input modes including voice, gesture, head pose and eye tracking". The breakthrough, according to Abovitz, was that the brain's visual cortex approximates a processor, and that if Magic Leap could render only the parts of a "light field" that the eye is looking at, it could turn it into a headset.

Pentagon confirmed existence of UFO program, incident videos released
The Pentagon's secret programme reportedly investigated odd objects in the sky that "hovered" or moved at "high velocities". The advanced Aerospace Threat Identifications program was started a decade ago at the urging of U.S.

We've been promised VR/AR headsets before that were supposed to revolutionize gaming and computing through constructs indistinguishable from reality. "That was the key idea". Also in early 2018, the Creator Portal will be opened up, offering access to the software development kit, which will include tools, documentation, and learning resources.

No VR startup other than Oculus has been better funded or more talked about than Magic Leap. The price has not yet been disclosed. Since then, Magic Leap has been in the news many times for the incredible amount of funding it secured from a variety of high-profile investors. The promise of free-form AR experience is still out there and neither Magic Leap or Microsoft have found it just yet. The Florida-based firm has been known to be working on mixed-reality technology of some sort - the kind of thing that prompts all who try it to trip over themselves trying to find ways of describing it - but that's about it.
