  • Magic Leap One Mixed Reality Headset now on sale for $2,295

We might be seeing a Magic Leap One launch before the day is over, or if not, perhaps by the end of the week. It's described as a product for consumers, and if you want to try it in person, AT&T will have demos in some stores.

There's just one thing: Regular folks like us aren't the intended audience. Magic Leap founder Rony Abovitz has taken to Twitter with a series of tweets suggesting a launch is imminent, including more than one reference to a rocket ship. The goal: for those makers to dream up the experiences (aka content) that's needed to convince us to become Leapers. You can pick one up now for $2,295 if you're so inclined, and it's available only in a few major cities right now, but you might want to hold off.

The promise of Magic Leap heavily depends on developers who can grow the platform and release more apps and content for it. "Together with the MR experts at Magic Leap, Wayfair has developed a completely new way to shop for home with a spatial browsing experience that will shape the next evolution of retail". There are only a few games now out, though more should come as developers get their hands on the system.

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.

"It's really for developers and creators to start to understand and start to engage with the power of spatial computing", Magic Leap's Chief Product Officer, Omar Khan, who recently joined the company, said in an interview.

Magic Leap's headset is an augmented reality device that overlays graphical images on the real world you're looking at through the goggles.

Magic Leap's glasses display the real world and integrate computer graphics, so that users can play games, videoconference with friends and family, and get work done.

"I mean, obviously, Magic Leap One Creator Edition is for creators and developers", Khan said.

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.

As for everyone else, Magic Leap One is shipping today. Up to 3 hours continuous use.
