    The future is here. Or so would the many VR projects of late make us want to believe. But there's one particular, ultra-secretive, heavily wrapped and very ambitious project that might actually make this statement more real and tangible, or visual in that sense. Yes, I'm talking about the Florida-based startup, Magic Leap that has amassed more than a billion dollars in investment, without even having a dev kits. Today, we have a bit more information concerning said project

    Wired's Kevin Kelly has had exclusive access to the headset (it exists!) and has posted a detailed article about his experience. Give it a read from the source below! He effectively describes it as mixed reality and further adds that "its reality is stronger than I thought possible". Here's an excerpt:

    And just today, Magic Leap has released a new video showing off actual footage of the device's possibilities. Note the footnote in the video: "Shot directly through Magic Leap technology on April 8, 2016. No additional effects or compositing were used in the creation of this video (except for this text)".


    The team has already teased the gaming possibilities with the Magic Leap before. When will we be able to try it or at least get more news about their device, who knows? What are your thoughts and expectations about Magic Leap, tempers?

    If this is actual direct footage, I'm absolutely blown away. This is the kind of stuff you see on TV, and it's coming closer and closer to everyday use.

    I would actually buy one of these if the price was right.

    According to the source, it does do that. I think it looks very promising. I'm not too impressed by what I've seen of Hololens but this seems like it's a big improvement over that.

    Your wallet can't hold the amount of money this will cost, that I am certain of.

    All this Magic Leap thing seems like a big troll, this is way too elaborate for a private project.

    It's cute, but if that thing is as bulky as any of the headsets I've used it will be uncomfortable to wear for more than 5 mins. Also, what's wrong with my screen? Why would I need data floating on my wall? If I wanted that I would get a projector. Imho all this vr and ar stuff is a passing fad.

    The first video is on the same level as prerendered non-gameplay trailers. Pure hype material and nothing more. The second one is a tiny bit better, but still doesn't show the problems with the device (most importantly, the FOV is pretty garbage).

    Are you sure this is not something used for people with 0 spiritual skill to observe astral plane?
    Edit:
    This is a joke and also I thought it was extremely realistic. If you are seeing things and has never been trained spiritually I suggest you get some help.
    Also this might be as pricy as hololens.

    I'll have you know that I've been trained to a lvl78 cleric, and I still don't see things.

    Imho, that's incredibly shortsighted. Except maybe (maybe!) the family room, eventually VR and especially AR can replace every screen in your house and still remain more portable than your projector and TV.
