Highly anticipated and like nothing we’ve ever seen before – the Magic Leap Mixed Reality Goggles. Having raised close to 2 Billion dollars since 2011, this start-up has been in the shadows manifesting something to revolutionize the virtual world as we know it. We’ve been inundated with various VR and AR goggles and headsets the past year, but these promise to be a cut above the rest.
There is no questioning their ability, especially if you look at their Demos, this is something that will really blow your mind if you haven’t already checked it out. What I do have a problem with are the questionable design choices made aesthetically. When using the Mixed Reality Goggles, one might be reminiscent of a walkman user with some funky eyewear choices. I do admire Magic Leap for trying to minimize any unnecessary weight or restrictive elements to the goggles, but I can’t help but feel they’re quite ominous looking. That being said, the Snap Spectacles got the same reception when they were released and the fact that Magic Leap is doing what hasn’t been done before they have free reign – as far as I’m concerned these guys are pretty funky, and I’m all for it.
