The Magic Leap One Mixed Reality Headset Is Finally Here

The Magic Leap One Mixed Reality Headset Is Finally Here”

You can enter your ZIP code on the Magic Leap site to check its availability.

That's a hefty asking price, albeit one that affords devs access to a mixed-reality headset that's been the subject of years of speculation. The Creator's Edition is only available in the U.S. for now and only within six cities: Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco, and Seattle.

The promise of Magic Leap heavily depends on developers who can grow the platform and release more apps and content for it.

We might be seeing a Magic Leap One launch before the day is over, or if not, perhaps by the end of the week.

Other stand-out experiences include an art tool called Create and a preview of an National Basketball Association app. Magic Leap is facing the chicken-and-egg scenario where they need consumers to entice developers and content to entice consumers, which is something VR has already been struggling with. 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. Magic Leap is connected via its own web browser called Helio, and is powered by its own operating system, dubbed LuminOS, the post noted. The device will cost $2,295, with an optional Professional Developer Package available for $495.

The timing of Gattis departure becomes even more interesting if the Magic Leap One Creator's Edition is indeed being launched today, as it means that the product is being launched with no one directly in control of marketing, which is arguably one of the most critical components of a product launch.

Available for $2295 Dollars, the Magic Leap One is now finally available for developer's to get their hands on to, at least for certain USA markets.

The experience that the Magic Leap One offers is nowhere near what was seen in the concept videos from a few years back. 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. The company has raised more than $2.3 billion since being founded in 2011 and after its last round received a valuation of more than $6 billion.

There's also a lot of advanced technology in the system: It runs off a Nvidia Parker processor, which includes 6 ARM cores.

As for everyone else, Magic Leap One is shipping today. Battery life can vary based on use cases.
