Magic Leap’s mixed reality headset is finally on sale

Magic Leap Founder, Website Hint at Wednesday Launch News for Mixed Reality Headset

Today, it has finally released its first product: The Magic Leap One, Creator Edition, the first "mixed-reality" headset. Magic Leap will, however, sell you prescription lenses you can pop onto the headset. If you're familiar with Scribblenauts, it's essentially that game's Sandbox Mode, but set in the real world, and with a fixed store of resources that you can not change with descriptors. For one, the company needs to sign up developers to get more apps and services working with the technology to make it a more worthwhile investment. Magic Leap One is based on a whole new OS called LuminOS. The device will cost $2,295, with an optional Professional Developer Package available for $495.

As announced at the time of its formal launch late previous year, the Magic Leap One goggles offer six degrees of freedom (6DoF) through the bundled Control, which offers force control as well as haptic feedback. The headset's computer vision and spatial audio technology powers mixed reality gaming, the ability to fill the real world with persistent, lifelike digital objects, and soundfield audio. 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.

Magic Leap announced several early experiences for the new device. If you don't have shipping available to your area, you'll need to wait for Magic Leap to bring the headset to your city in order to get your hands on it.

Magic Leap One Creator Edition will include the Lightwear headset, Lightpack computing pack, Control handheld input device, a Fit Kit to ensure a perfectly calibrated fit, chargers, and a Quick Start Guide.
