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

The Magic Leap One Creator Edition is now available, offering customers a first look at the company's augmented reality technology.

The Magic Leap One is a three-part device that consists of a headset, the Lightwear, a wearable computer, the Lightpack, and a handheld controller.

Although the goggles are designed as a developer kit, aimed at the creators and makers who will build an ecosystem for the device, it is packaged as an out-of-the-box AR system with a lot of extra additional capabilities and content.

Magic Leap, the company that has been promising the best in augmented reality for the past four years, has finally released the Magic Leap One to developers.

The Magic Leap One Creator Edition will only be available in the United States at first, and with limited availability. The headset itself can be ordered via the company's website, and is now only shipping to folks in the United States. He had previously said that a version of Magic Leap would launch this summer, which ends on September 22.


UPDATE: After many hours of frenzied speculation, the Unreal Engine official Twitter spilled the beans, announcing that the Magic Leap One Creator's Edition was now available, and including a link to the site, where a Buy Now button was prominently displayed.

Powered by a Nvidia Tegra X2 processor, which sits around the wearer's waist in a "Lightpack", the Magic Leap One allows users to control and manipulate computer generated objects that can be seen only when the headset is worn, says Trusted Reviews. Magic Leap is facing the chicken-and-egg scenario where they need consumers to entice developers and content to entice consumers, which is something VR has already been struggling with.

The buzz around Magic Leap's tech led the Florida-based startup to raise over $2.3 billion from investors including Google, Alibaba, top-tier Sand Hill Road venture capitalists, and Saudi Arabia's sovereign investment arm. We just launched it and we're in early orbit. Further, the Lightwear glasses have onboard speakers and a 3.5mm headphone jack along with audio spatialisation processing. There isn't a cellular connection available on Magic Leap One.

The Times's collaboration with Magic Leap marks the next step in its continued exploration of immersive journalism, and innovation in visual storytelling.

Built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
