The Magic Leap One VR Headset Is Expensive But Very Cool

While the Magic Leap One VR Headset costs $2,295, it can actually do some pretty cool stuff

Yesterday, Magic Leap released it’s extremely expensive VR headset, the Magic Leap One. The headset costs a whopping $2,295 and currently can only be found in six cities: Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco, and Seattle. The Plantation, Florida based company, founded by Rony Abovitz back in 2010 and has already raised $1.4 billion from a list of investors including Google and China's Alibaba Group.

The Magic Leap One superimposes 3D computer-generated images over real-world objects by “projecting a digital light filed into the user’s eye”.  This type of wearable technology has the potential to replace phones, computers, and every other high-tech screen in our lives. The company has already released some pretty cool demonstrations of what it can do, ranging from an audiovisual augmented reality experience with band Sigur Rós, otherwise known as Tónandi as well as a crazy Cat Explorer, which is a VR anatomy simulation that lets you pull an animated cat apart with your bare hands.

We’re excited to see what else people will be able to do with the new device but we definitely already like what we’ve seen so far.
