Our first look at the Magic Leap One, the augmented reality head-mounted setup by Magic Leap.

Magic Leap is an American startup company that is working on a head-mounted virtual retinal display, called Magic Leap One, which superimposes 3D computer-generated imagery over real world objects, by “projecting a digital light field into the user’s eye”, involving technologies potentially suited to applications in augmented reality and computer vision. It is attempting to construct a light-field chip using silicon photonics.

Magic Leap was founded by Rony Abovitz in 2010 and has raised $1.4 billion from a list of investors including Google and China’s Alibaba Group. In December 2016 Forbes estimated that Magic Leap was worth $4.5 billion. On December 20, 2017 the company announced its first product by revealing pictures and promising a 2018 release for the Magic Leap One headset. On August 8th, 2018, the Magic Leap One was made available in the United States.
