The problem with augmented reality is that it’s just not as immersive as virtual reality, but the Magic Leap 2 (ML2) headset aims to change that. Starting with the headset itself, it boasts a slimmer profile and wider field of view compared to its predecessor, along with a new feature that will make AR elements appear more sharp outdoors.
You also get improved battery life (3.5-hours), higher fidelity imaging, more accurate hand- and eye-tracking, an upgraded AND Zen 2 processor, and most importantly, a lighter power pack. Plus, there are nine cameras, including two on the hand controller and four designed to track eye movement. Unlike its predecessor, these glasses have an innovative dimming feature that turn the Magic Leap 2 into faux sunglasses, thus making AR elements appear more crisp outdoors as previously mentioned. There’s no official release date, but the company is aiming for a 2022 release and pricing that will start from at least $2,200 USD.
