Many of us have been excited about Magic Leap’s augmented reality technology. The company is now out with its first headset. Magic Leap One is an augmented reality headset is comfortable to wear and combines with a lightweight pack to handle processing and graphics.
Magic Leap uses Digital Lightfield technology, precision tracking, mapping, and immersive audio to give you a more natural experience. As the company explains, its:
perception and room-mapping technology builds a digital replica of your physical environment – detecting and storing the precise location of walls, surfaces and other physical objects. Lightfield objects stay where you put them, just as they would in real life. Place a virtual TV on the wall over your fireplace and when you return later, the TV will be right where you left it.
The bad news? You will have to wait a bit to get your hands on one of these. You can sign up for updates here.
