The Google-funded company claims the demo was shot directly through its headset without special effects. You can see a little floating robot as well as a model solar system hovering in the air in an office space.
When it launches, Magic Leap’s AR headset will go head-to-head against Microsoft’s HoloLens, which is slated for a 2020 public release. However, Magic Leap hasn’t said when that might be and it’s kept details about its hardware fairly hush-hush, so you may want to hold off betting on who will win the AR battle.
If this demo is anything to go by, there’s a lot to be excited about in the field of augmented reality.
