A Google-backed startup has revealed its highly anticipated flagship product: a pair of goggles that tricks users’ into perceiving virtual objects as part of their real-life environment.
The Magic Leap One is a Steampunk-style headset that projects light directly into users’ eyes that works with a body-worn computer called a Lightpack and a handheld controller.
The headset tracks eye movements, voice and hand gestures to help a user place virtual objects in real-life settings.
“Place a virtual TV on the wall over your fireplace and when you return later, the TV will be right there where you left it,” Magic Leap’s website claims.
The hardware, which is believed to retail at $2,000 (£1,500) according to insiders, will ship next year, Magic Leap founder and chief executive Rony Abovitz said.
