    This product, if it delivers, has the potential to disrupt so many markets, computing/telecommunications/entertainment/gaming and so much more. The future is bright!

      Well, certainly more palatable than wearing the other VR buckets out there. Still not for me.

      I’d argue that it’s not for 99% of the population.

      Well, for those guys lurking in basements wearing the VR buckets, this might help them come up for air more often.

    • Rev0lver

      True enough. Might even help with the vitamin D deficiency.

      “Well, certainly more palatable than wearing the other VR buckets out there. Still not for me.”

      Its_me are you still trying to compare VR to AR, or the differences in headsets? Because if you are then you are proving once again how ignorant you really are. Because AR offers some things that VR cannot do. Just like VR offers some things that AR cannot do. For instance playing Doom VR, or flying around in a plane, or being in outer space or on a planet, playing call of duty, or driving a car. All those things and more would suck with AR, because AR doesn’t offer full immersion like VR.

      Umm, well duh Spammy.

      Glad to see you coming up for some air 😀

    But where’s my peripheral vis-oh wait this definitely uses Hololens tech

    • Smanny

      Hololens used larger lenses and only had a FOV of 30 degrees. These glasses have full FOV and the graphics overlay is the entire length of the lenses. Plus Hololens is a much larger. These magic leap glasses are less conspicuous.

      That’s pretty much what I said. HoloLens does not restrict your vision but only has a square of mixed reality. These glasses restrict your entire vision to the mixed reality panel.

      If it even exists. There’s some Photoshop tells and Magic Leap has a long history.
