In an article from techcrunch.com, technology company Magic Leap has secured $542M led by Google for “Lightweight Wearable” Technology that merges digital and physical worlds.
By now many have heard of the Oculus Rift, a larger headset tech that creates augmented reality by looking through it.
This breaks away even further and pushes the envelope of what we can expect for the future. These digital images would be produced in your physical environment through lightweight wearable tech that projects the images on your retinas.
The possibilities of Magic Leaps feat are endless across multiple disciplines which have gained the attention of top investors, across the tech, business, and entertainment worlds.
Magic Leap says, “compared to other AR-type tech to a situation whereby, if you’d come to see the Wright Brothers fly their original airplane in 1903, only to learn that someone else was building a jet in the next hangar over.”
Their production process is going to be more contained and less public than other AR companies’ projects.
This is the future.
