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.
Available for $2295 USD, the Magic Leap One is now finally available for developer’s to get their hands on to, at least for certain US markets. In other words, those interested in purchasing a headset must have a US zip code and live in specific states that are eligible for the initial rollout.
Inside the box, the Magic Leap One comes with the headset itself, a remote–like gesture-based controller that uses haptic feedback technology, and a small sister device, that houses Nvidia’s Tegra X2 mobile chipset, powering the graphic fidelity of the AR focused headset. The headset itself has been designed with ergonomics in mind, featuring a streamlined design with small sensor cameras all around the base of the device that helps track users in 3D space along with two large lenses that require additional prescription lenses for users that use glasses.
Magic Leap first began their long journey in 2014, after successfully raising $2.3 billion USD in funding from sources such as Google. Hopefully, things will now accelerate for the Florida-based company, as developer-ready models of the Magic Leap are now finally rolling out.
