Magic Leap One is on sale now for a whopping $2,300

"Magic Leap One is really about creators and spacial computing enthusiasts".

You can also add an optional $495 "professional development package" that'll let you replace the headset within 24 hours if needed.

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 made a lot of heads turn a few years ago with awesome videos that showed glimpses into the augmented reality technology that it was working on.

Tónandi is a collaboration between Icelandic avant-rock band Sigur Rós and Magic Leap Studios to create an audio-visual experience that inserts pulsing manifestations into the user's vision. The upcoming Dr. Grordbort's Invaders is an action game involving invading evil robots, developed with Weta Workshop.

Powered by a Nvidia Tegra X2 processor, which sits around the wearer's waist in a "Lightpack", the Magic Leap One allows users to control and manipulate computer generated objects that can be seen only when the headset is worn, says Trusted Reviews. Twilio provides the connection services for the Social app. At a price tag of $2,295, it will be of interest chiefly to cutting-edge adopters and developers. 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.
