Magic Leap One Headset Announced

Tech users have something to look forward next year. This comes after Google is soon to release a new device that would change the AR world. Called as the Magic Leap One, the search giant funded augmented-reality start-up will finally come out, a report from CNET said on Thursday, December 21.

Details of the Magic Leap One was shared by Rony Abovit, the founder and CEO of the company. He described Magic Leap One as a round-lensed googles that have display, audio and external camera sensors. Google’s new device is actually a handheld controller that looks like a touchpad.

What is Magic Leap One?

Magic One Leap’s touch pad is quiet similar to Samsung Gear VR and Google Daydream View’s phone-based VR headsets. Magic One Leap also connects itself to a round computer that works smoothly.

What’s amazing with this device is that you don’t need to tether to either a phone or PC. Given the public announcement of Magic Leap One, the company, however, did not release any details about its release date as well as the price.

The Magic One Leap is bundled with a Lightwear pair of glasses, a belt pack called Lightpack, and a controller. One of the features of Magic Leap One is its capability to track movements and at the same time map space. Other tech users are comparing the Magic Leap One to other AR headsets like the Microsoft Hololens.

What’s the difference between the Microsoft HoloLens vs Magic Leap One?

The company claims that Magic Leap One has more advanced 3D imaging features. Far more advanced that Microsoft HoloLens because Magic Leap One uses a light field technology with its specialized haptic controller.
