It seems Silicon Valley mixed reality firm, Magic Leap, is finally read to ship its headset. The company’s spatial computing headset, known as the Magic Leap One Creator Edition is going to start shipping this summer, Magic Leap announced via a live stream today. That is only slightly more accurate information than the company’s earlier announcement, when it said the headset would come this summer.
Other than a launch timing, the company also gave us some details on the headset’s specifications. The Magic Leap One Creator Edition (they have to do something about that name) runs on a Nvidia Tegra X2 processor, which is known to be a powerful processor suited for virtual reality. The company even showed a demo of the device on its stream.
Based on the demo, we know that the headset can recognise hand gestures and also supports multiplayer modes for games etc. That second part should actually be quite interesting to experience, if it works well.
Further, the company says its headset can also figure out points of the hand and recognise some specific static gestures.
