Google-backed Magic Leap πŸ‘ unveils its first augmented reality headset 😱, shipping in 2018


Following years of teasing, Magic Leap has finally unveiled its first product and detailed more about its takes on augmented reality.

In line with rumors from earlier this year, the Magic Leap One is composed of a "Lightwear" headset attached to a circular puck (via two cords) called the "Lightpack" that contains processing and graphics.

The key part of Magic Leap's technology is the "Digital Lightfield" for producing realistic images: Our 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.

This advanced technology allows our brain to naturally process digital objects the same way we do real-world objects, making it comfortable to use for long periods of time.

In terms of field of view, a piece in Rolling Stones notes that it is larger than Microsoft's HoloLens and equates it to "the size of a VHS tape held in front of you with your arms half extended."
