Magic Leap's ultra-hyped AR headset is finally available

Magic Leap One Release Date

Rather, the Creator's Edition is primarily aimed at developers with an eye-watering price-tag of $2,295, although just $700 less than the development version of Microsoft's Hololens headset. That said, Magic Leap has plenty of capital behind it, and in July AT&T signed up to be the exclusive retailer of the headset.

As for software, the Magic One also comes with a gallery of AR experiences and apps created to jumpstart its ecosystem. These "sound spirits", a translation of the Icelandic word Tónandi, can be "touched" and interacted with naturally, as if they're part of the real world. With Create it is possible to turn a room into an undersea paradise with sea turtles and undulating jellyfish or stage a fight between a knight and a T. Rex on the coffee table.

As the currency drops, Turkish companies and households with debt in foreign currencies see their debts expand. After winning the election in June, he appointed his son-in-law as chief of a revamped finance ministry.


Magic Leap has also drawn attention recently from reports that the Field-of-View (FoV) for the device is a relatively unimpressive 40 degrees vertical by 30 degrees horizontal, with a 4:3 aspect ratio. From the look of it, Magic Leap's untethered experience doesn't seem half bad, but I'm still skeptical of the quality as I haven't had the chance to try it yet. The upcoming Dr. Grordbort's Invaders is an action game involving invading evil robots, developed with Weta Workshop.

To run the user interface and software in the goggles, Magic Leap installed its own specialized operating system called LuminOS.

The Year’s Brightest Meteor Shower To Dazzle BC Skies This Week
Keen stargazers may have already spotted one or two streaking meteors since around mid-July when the Perseids started to appear. The annual show is the result of Earth's proximity to the "gritty" debris of Comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle, Boyle said in a release.


Magic Leap has been working on one of the most anticipated augmented reality headsets in the market. The $2,295 Creator Edition isn't a development kit. 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. There isn't a cellular connection available on Magic Leap One.
