    Well the first headsets are showing up at development houses and there has been questions does it live up to the nearly 2 billion raised to design and build it.

    First actual photographed images from inside of the headset and a look at the new optical system. No word yet from people about the head tracking and I have talked to people who have worked with optical tracking say it lags somewhat. This is due to the amounts of processing needed to make it work. It takes some substantial computing power or dedicated hardware to offload the processing even from the GPU or CPU.

    NBA app. that they signed a deal with the NBA to bring out.

    It uses 6 cameras to visualize and process the surroundings.

    Can't wait for the "x-ray vision" app.

    So people understand about the video is that it takes a massive amount of computing to create a mesh of a room especially near realtime. That's like one of the holy grail's of AR.

    The issue is the legality because that data could be processed an sent to magic. They can figure out what size TV how big a room an how many people in the room with you. The video is the most complete look to date.

    Magic Leap One tear-down shows possibly the most complex compact packed computing device in history of the world literally. I believe they could be losing money on every device they sell I would know because using field programmable gates and tons of custom hardware has to cost a ton. I honestly don't know how they could ever bring this down to 1,000 let alone 500 dollars. Using FPGA is a sign that they are still working on the hardware and have not decided what the final specs will be like and that being said the optical system is insane multi-plane transparent LCD's that direct light to the eyes right out of science fiction. It allows you to create the illusion of depth by distorting objects on different focal planes.

    6 degree of freedom magnetic tracking technology. It traces its roots back to the 90's a lot of companies have ruled out of using it because of latency but it seems that Magic Leap is more then happy with it.
    "


    • Survey says: a six-degrees-of-freedom magnetic sensor coil for tracking the position of the controller.
    • The intensity of the three perpendicular magnetic fields is measured to determine the position and orientation of the controller relative to the headset.

    • Cracking open the controller, we find the (much bigger) emitting half of the tracker, and an 8.4 Wh battery to boot.

    • The copper shielding sprayed into the coil housings likely protects from RF interference, while letting the magnetic field through
      • "
    • Interference could explain the tracker's odd placement, and this may be a temporary solution. It's "old" tech, and will probably be worse for left-handed use.

    Seriously advanced technology.
    • Lifting up one of the external sensor arrays, we find beneath: the optical system for injecting images into the waveguides.

    • These bright colors come from ambient light reflecting off the diffraction gratings, and don't represent specific color channels.
      • Each spot lives at a different depth—corresponding to a single layer of the waveguide.

    • At the back, we find the actual display device: an OmniVision OP02222 field-sequential color (FSC) LCOS device. It is likely a customized variation of the OmniVision OP02220.

    • The KGOnTech blog correctly guessed this was exactly what Magic Leap was doing, based on patent filings back in 2016.

    More photo
    • A cast magnesium block holds all the optics and sensors, and is surprisingly hefty for an HMD. The VR headsets we've taken apart all used lightweight plastic.

    • But metal makes a better heat sink, and the electronics and IR illumination (likely VCSELdevices) all produce heat

      • That pink stuff is thermal paste to help dissipate the IR rangefinder's heat.

    • Metal also offers a stiffer mounting place to keep the optics stable and focused after their rigorous calibration

      • But stiff isn't always best—some of these components are mounted with foam adhesive, which will be more forgiving as things flex when heated.

    • No longer perfectly placed, we may as well pop the covers off the sensors for a closer look.
    • These twin sensor arrays sit at each of your temples, with the strobing IR depth sensor perched right in the middle.
    • A closer look at the nose-bridge depth sensor gives us the room-reading hardware in the form of:

      • IR sensing camera

      • IR dot projector
    • There's no need to set up receiver stations for this device—it does the projection and reading all on its own!

    • Popping off the IR emitter ring, we find the elusive eye-tracking IR camera hiding behind a dark filter.

    • Having only a single camera below the eye may limit the accuracy and range of eye tracking. The camera can better view the eye/pupil when the user is looking downward than upward.
