Mixed reality hardware manufacturer Magic Leap this week unveil their new Magic Leap One mixed reality headset, which is expected to start shipping sometime during next year. The announcement was made via Twitter with a quick video teaser. Although no specifications have been announced as yet maybe more will be revealed at the upcoming CES 2018 technology show next month. Magic Leap has been developing the mixed reality headset for some time and was founded back in 2010 by Rony Abovitz and has raised 1.4 billion from a list of investors including Google and Alibaba. Features of the Magic Leap One platform include:
– digital lightfield
– visual perception
– persistent objects
– sound field audio
– high-powered chipset
– Next Generation interface
We’re adding another dimension to computing. Where digital respects the physical. And they work together to make life better. Magic Leap One is built for creators who want to change how we experience the world. 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.
We’re getting ready to open access to our SDK along with all of the tools, documentation, learning resources and support you’ll need to begin your journey. Magic Leap is a computing platform with a whole new set of capabilities. Here are some of the experiences we’ve been exploring, but they are just a jumping-off point. This is where your imagination comes to play. Magic Leap One allows web developers to optimize for content extraction and spatial browsing, enabling new ways to shop and explore with 3D objects.
