We’ll finally (finally!) have a chance to try out the much-anticipated Magic Leap One for ourselves via in-store demos in the future.
The augmented reality headset will be getting demo stations at AT&T stores in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco once it’s been launched for consumers, the company announced today. Furthermore, AT&T will be the exclusive wireless distributor of the device, which will be able to use either WiFi or wireless data to connect to the internet.
To be clear, then, it sounds like this refers specifically to when Magic Leap One launches as a full consumer product, which may not be this year. A Creator Edition of the kit will be shipping it out to “qualified designers and developers” later this year, though.
Magic Leap One is a pair of goggles that project virtual images into the real world and is controlled with a remote-like controller. The company behind the kit has slowly been trickling out more information about it over the course of the year, recently confirming that the device is designed for indoor use. Pricing has not yet been announced.
