Augmented-reality headset


Magic Leap


Not yet available


This year

Augmented reality has advanced a lot in the past year. One of the most anticipated gadgets is from the secretive, massively funded (nearly $2 billion) Florida-based startup Magic Leap. It unveiled its first AR headset, Magic Leap One, at the end of 2017, saying it will ship in 2018. Styled sort of like a modern pair of steampunk goggles, the black headset is meant for developers, and the company says it will produce images that look great while being comfortable to wear--two goals that have eluded many AR headset makers thus far. Magic Leap has been working toward this release since 2011, but there are still a lot of details to be worked out, including price and release date.
