Representatives for Magic Leap have announced an upcoming demo of a developer sample on July 11, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. ET. This will be shown on the official Magic Leap Twitch channel and the specifications for the Magic Leap One will also be disclosed. Magic Leap representatives are being tight-lipped about what the demo is scheduled to show. Hopefully the augmented reality device demo will be revolutionary as over $2 billion has been raised from venture capitalists to fund the company.
Worth mentioning that this magic leap has been a long time coming. The $2B was brought in at the end of 2014. Even last year, as it was getting criticized for being vaporware, and beat up for contiually showing off "faked" demos, it was noting that its dev product would be out for early 2018.
Via its official Magic Leap Twitter account, the company posted the announcement last week: "On our next episode of #magicleaplive, we’ll dive into some Magic Leap One specs and share a demo..." The demo for Magic Leap One was confirmed by a spokesman for the Plantation company, who said he could provide no further information about sales or shipment of its first product. "At this time, that’s all we can share," he said.
