The 3000 Magic Leap 1 augmented reality glasses will transform

The $3,000 Magic Leap 1 augmented reality glasses will transform into a pumpkin in 2025

Magic Leap emailed all owners of the first-generation augmented reality headset, which cost $2,995, warning that the device would be supported until December 31, 2024. At the end of that period, it just doesn’t work anymore.

The manufacturer reminded that the Magic Leap 1 augmented reality glasses will no longer be sold, but their support, including the release of software updates with bug fixes, will continue until December 31, 2024 – the same period in which the device warranty is valid. Magic Leap 1 cloud services will be terminated on December 31, 2024, the main functions of the product have been achieved “End of life”and the device and the apps for it stop working.

The pre-release version of the device went on sale in mid-2018 for $2,395, with the public version releasing a year later for $2,995. These were augmented reality glasses with transparent lenses – they were equipped with an external processing unit that was attached to the belt. Control was via a controller or hand movements, which were also tracked.

Magic Leap 1 featured a meager selection of content: chat with avatars, a web browser, a Wayfair “furniture” app, two Insomniac Games games, and a Spotify app. Due to the extremely high price and the impossibility of working with it comfortably outdoors, the device did not gain popularity. At the start of the sale, the company boss dreamed of selling more than a million units a year, but in reality only 6,000 units were sold in the first six months.

The manufacturer fixed some bugs with Magic Leap 2 – the updated headset was aimed at a corporate buyer and the price was raised to $3299. The home mixed reality headset segment has been held up by the lack of transparent meta glasses Quest 3 and Apple Vision Pro.
