Magic Leap have released a video to visually explain what their augmented reality technology might look like, with a floating solar system and a waving robot roaming free around the office.
We are still blind to what the hardware might resemble but there are suggestions that it will be an eyeglass, or head-mounted device, which will project computer-generated images onto the user's retina, beaming augmented reality images over their real life setting.
The future is going to be so weird...
The untold story of Magic Leap, the world’s most secretive startup
VR is here, but it's far from finished. More importantly, it's now out there at the stage where it is good enough to improve quickly. It's primed to go through an explosion of evolution over the next 5-10 years, so it's no surprise why everyone is interested.
Arguably the most interesting company in the space right now is Magic Leap. They've released barely any information up to now, but have still managed to attract an insane amount of venture capital funding from the likes of Google and Alibaba. Everyone who has tried it says it's amazing, including Wired.
Their profile of Magic Leap and its charismatic genius founder Rony Abovitz gushes with enthusiasm and quickly turns into an insightful and thought provoking look at VR, AR and the next 10 years of computing.
How Magic Leap works - from field of view to GPU
If you're curious about the magic behind the Magic Leap, Jono MacDougall at the GPU of the Brain blog has published a very in-depth look at what kind of technology and experience it could be. Don't take it as fact, but his research comes from talks, patents, job applications and the background of people working at the company, so it's a lot more informed than you're likely to read anywhere else.

AR startup Magic Leap raises $793.5M Series C at $4.5B valuation led by Alibaba
At Rerun, we can only imagine what goes on behind the velvet curtain at Magic Leap. With a $4.5 billion valuation, Magic Leap's tech has yet to launch commercially or even be publicly revealed. This is either going to be a mind blowing technology for the planet, or a whale of a fail.
One thing is for sure, Magic Leap's headset-free mixed reality vision of our future is pure magic. We can't wait to cradle a tiny elephant in our hands and chase pet dragons around our living rooms.
