Magic Leap, a US developer and augmented reality and mixed reality technology, has finally revealed details of its AR headset.
The company updated its website with pictures of AR goggles, a controller and a computing pack to be worn round the waist.
Magic Leap also said that it was preparing to open access to its SDK along with “all of the tools, documentation, learning resources and support” developers will need to start using the kit for creative purposes.
In October, Magic Leap raised $502 million in funding led by Temasek Holding Pte., Singapore’s state-owned investment company. Brazil-based Grupo Globo and Janus Henderson Investors also participated in the fundraising, along with Alibaba Group Holding Ltd., Fidelity Investments and other existing investors. This brought total funding for the Florida-based startup to more than $1.8 billion, according to Bloomberg.
Magic Leap’s technology promises an immersive mixed reality experience, allowing users to interact with 3D graphics layered over reality.
