PT After seven years of rumors, speculation and hype (not to mention $2.3 billion in funding from major companies like Google), Magic Leap this week started selling a real product you can buy. And I’m here to do a magic trick of my own: I’m going to make your misconceptions about Magic Leap disappear!

The Magic Leap One Creator Edition is available on the Magic Leap website for $2,295. The headset weighs just under a pound and comes in two sizes based on head size and eye distance.

Both sizes come with removable, variably sized and shaped nose and forehead rests. It gets about three hours of battery life.

In the box you get the headset, the Control handheld input device, the Lightpack computing pack, a Fit Kit for optimizing fit, chargers, a Quick Start Guide and a one-year limited warranty. The Lightpack is the “computer” part – an Nvidia Parker system-on-a-chip with a Tegra X2 processor, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

Round and flat, the Lightpack looks like two portable CD players from 15 years ago that open clamshell-style to clip into pants. It can also hang from a strap and is connected to the headset via cabling. Read more from…
