One of the main marketing tactics used by Magic Leap to promote the Magic Leap One was the sale of Early Adopters to the "magic" contained in the device. Part of this magic was discovered on Thursday when the Magic Leap One was completely disassembled by repair engineers to reveal the delicate innards of the device and explain how it provides its augmented reality experience.
The Team at iFixit Known for Breaking Up Some of the most popular devices on the planet, including devices like Apple's iPhone, iPad, MacBooks, Microsoft's Surface and many other devices, have targeted their tear-down capabilities on the Magic Leap One. And the results are enlightening.
First of all, they address something that I've personally wondered about: the cable that connects the lightwear component (the glasses) to the Lightpack component (the hip-mounted computer). When using the Magic Leap One, I sometimes had to readjust the cable to prevent it from interfering with gestures or other interactions. And at least twice I almost dropped the Lightpack, saved only by the connecting cable that prevented the component from hitting the ground.
