Magic Leap One Specs:
The Magic Leap One is three-piece device consisting of Lightwear (glasses), Lighpack (Wearable computer) and a Totem (hand held controller). Its USB-C rechargeable battery will provide for about 3 hours of continuous use. The component parts break out as follows:
Nvidia Tegra X2 mobile chipset,
8GB of memory
128GB of storage
Built in Speakers (there is a headphone jack)
Connectivity: Bluetooth 4.2, WiFi 802.11ac/b/g/n, USB-C
It has two size options and interchangeable nose and forehead rests. You also have the option to change the lens angle, distances of the lens from your face and even order prescription lens inserts. Initial test reports are that the headset is a very comfortable and becomes unnoticeable after a few minutes of wearing it.
Currently it comes with a bundle of apps. The bundle includes a browser called Helio, a virtual chat system, apps that place objects onto the screen virtually and a demo game. The demo is called Dr. Grordboth’s Invaders, which got millions of views on YouTube. The real exciting part is what’s coming down the pike. Magic Leap opened the platform to developers in early 2018 and signed a deal with Disney Lucas film, so you can expect there will be a lot of content coming out shortly. The Magic Leap developer portal mentions the “Magic Leap World”. It will serves and a place for developers to collaborate on apps and end users to purchase them. The “Magic Leap World” already has demos for an art app called Create, a virtual music experience and the NBA. There will definitely be more by the holiday season.
The graphics have been described as hyper-realistic by a few reviewers. There is a lot of concern about if the Creator Edition Leap is going to live up to the hype, so far it seems like it will. The current version is primarily for indoor use and outdoors under certain conditions. This version has a limited range of view, but is almost 50% bigger then the Hololenses.
The Creator Edition Leap is currently priced at $2295. The $495 add on ‘professional development package” includes a hub, which allows connectivity to a computer and 24 hour replacement service.
According to Magic Leap in six major metropolitan (Chicago, LA, Miami, New York, San Francisco and Seattle areas the company offers delivery, set up and sizing at no additional charge. While writing this article I tried Philadelphia and the service appeared to be available there too.
