Magic Leap appears to be launching Magic Leap One at 8:08 am on August 8, 1818 after a series of clues revealed by CEO Rony Abovitz via Twitter
At 20:08 ET, Abovitz changed his avatar into a floating spaceship with Magic Leap, his Twitter cover image with the launch of whales, and tweeted a link to the Wikipedia page for the Roland TR-808th Tomorrow is the 8th of August or 08-08-2018. We do not know if it will start at 8:08 pm ET (which is absolutely brutal on the west coast at 5:08 pm) or at 8:08 pm (or 5:08 pm PT) in the mornings. The embargoed ratings and the Reserve page will almost certainly rise within the next 24 hours.
And now the Magic Leap homepage shows a rocket on a rocket Launchpad with the message "Be Right Back" above. The rocket also rotates when users click and drag across the page.
We have a note that Wednesday was 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. (What's worth, Garcia died on August 9th, that was the date I put my fantasy chips on the starting day.)
At this point, it's obvious that we're all at 8:08 tomorrow Clock should turn on ET for the start. And if not then, 8:08 is it!
