Magic Leap One ships this summer, AR app demonstrated

The announcement: While much of the world was paying attention to the World Cup on Wednesday, Magic Leap's Alan Noon said during a live stream on Twitch that the Magic Leap One, a developer-geared headset, will ship this season.

AT&T has also signed on to be the exclusive wireless distributor of Magic Leap, which is created to use either WiFi or wireless data to connect to the internet. The other six cores will be used for various other functions.

"We're designing and offering the future of entertainment and connectivity, and this exclusive arrangement-in combination with our 5G leadership position-will open up new opportunities and experiences", John Donovan, CEO of AT&T's wireless side, said in a statement.

Magic Leap One promises to lay virtual objects over the real world in an experience more advanced than other headsets including HoloLens. It's not clear what that means financially, but will be the exclusive U.S. consumer distributor for the headset.

Apple may discontinue these models in 2018: Research report

Wimbledon: Serena Williams makes her charge as top seeds fall
Here's the reason Williams has emerged as a favorite: She has seven Wimbledon titles, while the rest of the field has zero. The 21-year-old Latvian dropped a set for the first time in this year's tournament as she committed 19 unforced errors.

London awaits Trump's visit, braces for protests
Mr Trump will spend the weekend in Scotland where he has two golf courses and plans to play at least once. The poll conducted this week said 63 per cent found Trump racist, and 74 per cent said he was sexist.

The deal also includes an investment of an undisclosed sum into Magic Leap and grants AT&T's chief observer rights with Magic Leap's board.

It's important to note that this agreement is for consumer devices, not the Creator Edition, which is aimed at developers. There's no word yet on pricing, but if the Magic Leap One Creator Edition is truly coming out in the next couple months we can expect that kind of information to be available shortly.

At long last, developers will be able to check the highly anticipated head mounted virtual retinal display (VRD) that's supposed to revolutionize augmented reality as we know it.

In addition, Magic Leap confirmed some details about its system, including that it uses an NVIDIA CPU/GPU module. However, it's still hard to see how this translates - or what the field of view is - without actually getting our hands on the device.
