Magic Leap One Mixed Reality headset looks like cyberpunk sunglasses

Magic Leap reveals its One AR glasses

Magic Leap finally proves its mixed reality glasses are real

Today the company revealed the Magic Leap One, a new augmented reality system that first and foremost wants to move away from the bulky headsets that now dominate VR.

Pricing and the exact shipping date haven't been given yet for the Magic Leap One, but the company says that it will ship in 2018.

In a twist, the document is for 'virtual reality glasses'. It's a system comprising a very bulbous, sensor-laden headset, a computer attached by a cable that looks like a Discman, and a handheld control that looks almost identical to those made by Samsung and Oculus for their VR headsets.

Magic Leap is finally releasing a developer version of its augmented reality system next year.

National Signing Day 2018: Five-Star DE Micah Parsons Commits to Penn State
Three years and one month after Penn State offered him a scholarship as a freshman, Micah Parsons is officially a Nittany Lion. I assumed he must be a recruit but had no idea who he was or what he was doing.

It's also got some serious steampunk vibes going on, which you have to give its designers a little credit for.

The necessary Lightpack computer contains most of the processing power behind the Magic Leap smart glasses, and apparently has similar power to a MacBook Pro or Alienware gaming PC.

The company also explained that the Leap One interface is being built around multiple input modes like voice, gesture, head pose, and eye tracking - although it will also come with a handheld haptic remote. However, exactly how the system projects those images-and maps an entire room so that digital objects will remain in a proper position no matter when you put the headset on or take it off-is still entirely unclear. Where digital respects the physical.

There's definitely room for a better MR headset, so if Magic Leap can deliver one, it could quickly become the market leader.

When I last wore the HoloLens, it told me where to walk by painting arrows on the floor in front of my eyes. "All of the channels kept playing whether I was watching them or not". You can see an example of this on our article about Graeme Devine.

Magic Leap suggests its approach is more comfortable to use for extended periods of time than other attempts to create mixed reality. It looks a lot like Facebook Spaces. The company attracted millions in funding from high-profile backers for its "mixed reality" goggles, as demos dripped out, starting with the ridiculously over the top and progressing into the more reasonable. Those who have tried it have called it mind-bending.

Magic Leap's extensive roster of investors include Warner Bros., Legendary Entertainment, Google, Alibaba Group, Fidelity Management and Research Co., J.P. Morgan Investment Management, and T. Rowe Price, KKR, Vulcan Capital, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Andreessen Horowitz and Obvious Ventures. Although Magic Leap had not officially unveiled its headset until Wednesday, it teased the product by promoting a collaboration with the band Sigur Rós earlier this week.
