The day has finally arrived. About eight months after the launch of the Magic Leap One: Creator Edition, Magic Leap made the device available on Wednesday through a reservation page on its website.
The package includes the Lightwear Headset, the Lightpack Wearable Computer and the Control Handheld Controller, which Magic Leap showed in June via a Twitch livestream.
The delivery schedule is "within 120 days, but usually much earlier" from a pre-order, with a $ 200 reservation fee applied to
Magic Leap has not only made the product available, but also provided hardware specifications and field of view (or viewing frustum, in Magic Leaps parlance) that previously uncovered by Next Reality.
Lightpack runs on an NVIDIA Parker SOC with a pair of Denver 2.0 64-bit CPU cores plus a Quartz ARM Cortex A57 64-bit cores, with half of each set available for applications. For GPU it grabs a Nvidia Pascal with 256 CUDA cores.
Lightpack has a storage capacity of 128 GB, applications have approximately 95 GB, and device memory is 8 GB, 4 GB for apps. The device can be used for around three hours on the battery, and comes with a 45 watt USB C power module for stationary use. Meanwhile, the control unit runs on its battery for about seven hours, packaged with a 15-watt USB-C charger.
The visual frustum measures 40 degrees on the horizontal plane, 30 degrees on the vertical and 50 degrees on the diagonal, resulting in an aspect ratio of 4: 3.
Nearly four years after Magic Leap left the stealth world, we finally see what $ 2.3 billion in funding costs.
