It seems like Magic Leap has been a tease for 1000 years. Cool videos, nothing at all to show. No price, no availability dates, no specifications, no minimum requirements just cool teaser videos. It's the official Duke Nukem Forever of this generation.

Do the glasses allow you to see vaporware?
Considering Google and others have invested over 1 billion dollars into this company I highly doubt they would do that if they didnt see both promise and progress in this company. That being said a very rough release date would be nice

Ahh another day of fake demos to mislead people in investing in a product that's far behind the hololens
The hololens 35 degree FOV is laughable though (which is a non-starter in most use cases). I think it's behind literally everything. At least the magic leap purportedly has a very high FOV. My problem with the ML is they send out cool videos with basically little to nothing about the device itself.

There's a lot more to it than vaporwear. The company wouldn't have raised over a billion in funding without showing something truly impressive to investors.

I still really enjoyed this tease. Really sparks my imagination and has me excited for the future. I felt like they did a good job on this one. Much better than that giant whale splash in the gym.

I see nothing here that really benefits from AR. Unlike their videogame demo, this doesn't really seem to interact with the physical environment or the users setting or activities.

Sure, it's cool. Just not a very good way to sell AR, IMO. You want to show AR being used for things that either can't be done any other way, or that are greatly enhanced by AR.
