Magic Leap’s mixed reality headset is finally on sale

Magic Leap Founder, Website Hint at Wednesday Launch News for Mixed Reality Headset

The system comes with three pieces: a headset called Lightwear; a small wearable computer called the Lightpack with an integrated CPU and GPU to render the headset's graphics; and a handheld controller that looks similar to that of an HTC Vive or other VR headset controller.

To kickstart the quest for developers, Magic Leap has offered a bunch of preview experiences that are developed either by the in-house team or through some early-access partners.

The headset is more suited to qualified designers and developers.

The company on Wednesday announced that its Magic Leap One headset is available now in the U.S. However, the device, which costs a whopping $2,295, is only available in "limited quantities", Magic Leap said in a statement.

Today, it has finally released its first product: The Magic Leap One, Creator Edition, the first "mixed-reality" headset. The advanced glasses that were unveiled in December past year to offer a mix of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) experience out-of-the-box are initially available in limited quantities to developers in the US. With the Helio technology, customers are able to interact fluidly with adjustable 3D digital models of Wayfair products that have been superimposed on real world images. It is powered by an Nvidia system-on-chip tech, with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and a battery lasting 3 hours with uninterrupted Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and USB-C connectivity.

Tónandi is a collaboration between Icelandic avant-rock band Sigur Rós and Magic Leap Studios to create an audio-visual experience that inserts pulsing manifestations into the user's vision.

Magic Leap's history has always been somewhat mysterious, but it has also garnered a huge amount of support and hype from investors. It is a hyperrealistic action game where the player is pitted against evil robots intent on invading the living room.

Magic Leap has been working on one of the most anticipated augmented reality headsets in the market. The company calls it "a whole new operating system" that works "in tandem with the brain" in order to provide the best possible spatial computing platform. Magic Leap is limiting the release to selected cities in the USA to start, as each purchase comes with a free technician visit to help users fit and set up the device. You'll have to purchase special pop-in lenses for extra cash if that's going to be an issue for you, or wear contacts.
