After a series of clues revealed by CEO Rony Abovitz via Twitter, Magic Leap seems to be ready to launch Magic Leap One on Thursday at 08:08 ET.
At 8:08 pm On Tuesday night, Magic Leap boss Rony Abovitz changed his Twitter avatar into a floating spaceship by Magic Leap and his Twitter cover picture on the launch of whales , He then tweeted a link to the Wikipedia page for the classic Roland TR-808 drum machine.
The assumption is that these are all indications that the starting day is August 8th or 08-08-2018. We do not know if it will start at 8:08 am CET in the morning (which is absolutely brutal on the west coast at 5:08 in the morning) or at 8:08 in the evening. (or 5:08 PM PT), but the reserve page "Magic Leap One" will almost certainly go up within the next 24 hours.
The Magic Leap homepage now shows a rocket on a Launchpad with the message "Be Right Back ". The rocket also rotates when users click and drag across the page.
We've gotten a hint that Wednesday would be the day of Abovitz on Twitter last week. After listening to on 31 July 1945 Funkstille Abovitz broke the protocol to share a tweet on August 1 in honor of the musician Jerry Garcia's birthday . He followed this with a tweet, the radio silence resumed eight suns, indicating that the launch was eight days away. (For what it's worth, Garcia died on August 9, 1995.)
At this point, it's obvious that we should all turn on the launch tomorrow at 8:08 pm ET. And if not then, 8:08 pm it is!
