Magic Leap is a dark horse in the VR/AR world. However, there is enough information about the levels of funding and the technology involved to make it “intriguing.” So, it is on the radar, and more will be posted in the blog roll when and if it ever becomes a real player in the “actual” consumer market that is unfolding.
For now, here is a short introductory video about it.
This was an earlier, first demo from last year.
Then in April of this year a new demo was released and Wired gained exclusive access to also do a story on the company. The first video below is their quick introduction to the technology, the second video is their exclusive story, and the third video is the full demo that Magic Leap just released.
