Magic Leap One Creator Edition mixed-reality headset is finally on sale for $2,295.

The company on Wednesday announced that its Magic Leap One headset is available now in the U.S. However, the device, which costs a whopping $2,295, is only available in "limited quantities", Magic Leap said in a statement. The advanced glasses that were unveiled in December a year ago 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. Right now, however, it's aimed at app developers, who Magic Leap hopes will want to create their own apps for the Magic Leap World store. With the Helio technology, customers are able to interact fluidly with adjustable 3D digital models of Wayfair products that have been superimposed on real world images.

Magic Leap founder Rony Abovitz has taken to Twitter with a series of tweets suggesting a launch is imminent, including more than one reference to a rocket ship.

The Verge previewed the Magic Leap One before it was released, and described it as "an ambitious and well-built piece of hardware that's still held back by technical limitations". You can enter your ZIP code on the Magic Leap site to check its availability.
