The Verge goes hands-on with the coveted Magic Leap AR headset

Google-backed startup Magic Leap invited The Verge to Florida for a hands-on of the Magic Leap One, a headset that projects 3D images into reality. The goggles are weird, futuristic, and surprisingly wearable — but has Magic Leap’s technology caught up to its ambitions?

Spoiler alert: Nope.

Doesn’t mean people aren’t still convinced though. Google has pumped over US$2b into these guys and perhaps once its field of view grows to cover the entire lens instead of a paltry 50 degrees I’ll upgrade my cynicism to a “maybe”.
