Magic Leap One – is really that magic? 

The idea to mix our real physical world with amazing digital elements is absolutely crazy! But, wait for a second, will this invention be as heavy and strange as other VR headsets? Will it really work as it was promised?

Fortunately, Leap One is much lighter than its predecessors and look kinda cool – the designers were probably inspired by steampunk games and mecha anime movies. Moreover, you can easily wear them the whole day as it’s quite comfortable for your head. Leap One comes with a small hand-controller with the touchpad.

The headset will be available in two sizes. Users can customize them in the area of the nose and forehead. Also, there is the possibility of adjusting the focus for users with myopia and hyperopia.

The difference between Magic Leap One and the others is the set of sensors that provide the interaction of real objects with virtual ones. That is, a virtual person can through the real obstacles like a door or a hole in the wall and any digital element can be “fixed” as real. Read more on their official website.

Price and shipping

After more than 7 years of development and $2 billion collected, the Magic Leap One is finally here! It’s shipped in US for $2,295. It’s available online only in select cities.

Reviews

“You aren’t tethered to another computer,” writes CNBC’s Todd Haselton. “You can walk around freely (though I felt a bit weird with it on my head since it’s like trying to walk around with swimming goggles on).

“It’s hard to explain what it’s like using Magic Leap, a problem the company has admitted.”

” … It wasn’t great at first,” Jessi Hempel reports. “The headset was beautiful, and unlike others I’ve tried, it felt light on my head. A disc-size battery and computing pack, built like a small CD, fit easily in my front pocket. A main menu popped up in front of me, the field of view large enough that it didn’t seem narrow.

“But as great as this was, there were glitches. When I tried to use the hand controller to navigate to a football demo, the controller didn’t respond; the experience appeared frozen.”
