It should not be a surprise, but Magic Leap One, the first product that sells the company is very expensive, only aimed at developers, and only sold in six cities within the US.
Magic Leap One finally launch
The edition for creators of Magic Leap One is the first product of Augmented Reality that the company launch. Its price is $ 2,295 and can only be obtained within the US.
It must be purchased online, but, yes or yes, you have to live in the cities: Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco and Seattle.
At least during the launch, which are not in those six cities, there is no way to buy the device. Magic Leap ensures that more cities will come closer to the list in the near future, but there are no guarantees that it can be purchased in Europe.
In addition to the $ 2,295 version, for the sum of $ 495 extra you can purchase the professional edition for developers that includes an extra cable and a service called RapidReplace that allows device replacement in 24 hours or less.
For this sum, you get the HMD, Lightwear and the Superpowered Lightpach power pack, which really is a portable micro-computer. The team consists of a six-core Nvidia Parker chip, Nvidia Pascal GPU, 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage and a battery that can offer up to 3 hours of autonomy. Connectivity includes Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11ac / b / g / n and USB-C
Once again, we are at the beginning of this mixed reality revolution, and both the hardware and the software need to receive important improvements and innovations so that the experience feels like what the company shows in the marketing videos.
Here we leave a brief publication that came out just after the release of Magic Leap One was announced.
