Magic Leap is gearing up to build millions of "magic" devices

Magic Leap hasn't announced a launch date for its mysterious magic glasses devices, but the fact that its gearing up for volume production signals that it's about to happen sooner rather than later.

We all know 2016 will be the year of Virtual Reality, with much awaited devices reaching the stores, like the Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR - while companies like Microsoft stride ahead with things like its own HoloLens. If you think Google would stand in the sidelines after the Glass "fiasco", you'd be wrong. The fact is that Google Glass may itself be pushed to the sidelines after Google saw what Magic Leap had to offer.

Those who saw Magic Leap technology in action say that it blows everything else out of the water, allowing you to see virtual images seamlessly placed over the real world in a near perfect way. And now, he finally get a video of an actual device, with no special effects added, where it indeed seems to be true (particularly the part where it seems you can actually focus on different parts of the image as if they were at different distances, unlike most VR/AR goggles.

Magic Leap's CEO says they're gearing up a production line to build "millions" of these devices, which would allow for a public launch event by next year's Google I/O. If that's the case, one year from now the mobile market as we know it might have become literally obsolete!

... Suddenly, that demo video many said was too unrealistic to achieve with current technology, doesn't seem that far from what Magic Leap can actually do. :)
