Magic Leap's software and browser use spatial computing, a technology that allows users to engage the space around them as a medium to interact with technology, meaning that people could do things like throw away an email in a real trash can or project and use their calendar on the wall.

The Magic Leap One Creator Edition includes the headset, computer, and controller.

Magic Leap has finally launched much awaited and long talked augmented reality product "Magic Leap One Creator Edition" for the developer, creator or explorer.

The product is called "Magic Leap One Creator Edition" and it is intended for developers and other professionals who want to make content for the platform. The advanced glasses that were unveiled in December past year to offer a mix of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) experience out-of-the-box are initially available in limited quantities to developers in the US. It is powered by an Nvidia system-on-chip tech, with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and a battery lasting 3 hours with uninterrupted Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and USB-C connectivity. These include Tonandi, developed with the band Sigur Ros to experience their music in a new interactive, audio-visual experience, and Create, a mixed reality experience for users to develop their own adventures at home, developed by Magic Leap Studios. It is a hyperrealistic action game where the player is pitted against evil robots intent on invading the living room.

The Magic Leap One Creator Edition also has a Gallery for content organization, a Social application for shared experiences, and a Screens apps for viewing content.

The company said it will soon release a prescription lens insert for the headset, customized based on eyeglass prescriptions. "With Magic Leap, we are setting a new precedent for a truly immersive shopping experience leveraging the power of mixed reality and the ease of web". However, the system has a starting price of $2,295 and has limited availability.

What sets the Magic Leap One apart, though, is its ability to let in more natural light - combined with softer authentic light rays - to create an image that's easier on the user's eyes, Ars Technica reports.

The timing of Gattis departure becomes even more interesting if the Magic Leap One Creator's Edition is indeed being launched today, as it means that the product is being launched with no one directly in control of marketing, which is arguably one of the most critical components of a product launch.
