After recently holding a very lacklustre press conference during which no new information, specifications or even a live demo was shown by Magic Leap. The company specialising in mixed reality hardware capable of both augmented reality and virtual reality and currently developing the Magic Leap One headset has this week announced that it promises to share specifications and also provide a live demonstration during next week’s Magic Leap Live session.
Hopefully after a long wait Magic Leap will actually have some credible specifications and show what they knew hardware is capable of, putting an end to the vapourware rumours still circulating. From previous press releases we already know that the Magic Leap One headset will offer digital lightfield technology, visual perception, persistent objects, sound field audio and be equipped with a 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.”
As soon as more information specifications and finally a live demonstration of the Magic Leap One mixed reality headset is made available we will keep you up to date as always.
