Magic Leap's much-hyped and long-awaited augmented-reality platform just got a little more real with the official introduction of its Magic Leap One Creator Edition. It includes a set of Lightwear smart glasses, a belt-worn Lightpack battery pack and a controller, simply called Control.
The company said it's due to ship in 2018, but gave no pricing information.
The Creator Edition looks geared toward developers. With its upcoming Creator Portal, the company has announced, "We're getting ready to open access to our SDK along with all of the tools, documentation, learning resources and support you'll need to begin your journey."
