What is the mysterious Magic Leap
You’ve probably never heard of Magic Leap, a startup so secretive they’re not even telling the public who is on their team. What’s clear is that Magic Leap is working on augmented-reality technology. Now, Google and other major tech investors are preparing to pour $500 million into the Florida-based company, according to tech blog Recode.
Magic Leap is making “what we believe will be the most natural and human-friendly wearable computing interface in the world,” said CEO Rony Abovitz in a written release from February, when the company secured $50 million in investments.
What’s clear is that Magic Leap is working on augmented-reality technology. And they’re claiming that the product they’re keeping tightly under wraps will trump anything that’s been offered by existing companies like Oculus, the virtual-reality company Facebook bought this year for $2 billion.
