AT&T to sell Magic Leap's augmented reality gadget in U.S.

AT&T Gets Exclusive Deal to Sell Magic Leap's AR/VR Headset

Magic Leap has taken to drip out new information about its first AR headset every month or so, but it's just chose to open the faucet a little more, spilling a whole bunch of nuggets on its developer Twitch stream. The other six cores will be used for various other functions.

Magic Leap's first device, Magic Leap One (Creator's Edition), contains three components.

This chip is an updated version of the Tegra X1 chip, which most notably powers the Nintendo Switch, and utilises the older Nvidia Maxwell GPU architecture.

It remains to be seen if Magic Leap can deliver on their $2.3 billion promise to investors, which includes Google, Alibaba and AT&T, but it seems the answer will be coming soon enough.

It's important to note that this agreement is for consumer devices, not the Creator Edition, which is aimed at developers.

Founder, president and CEO of Magic Leap Rony Abovitz had this to say of the AT&T investment: "We've joined with AT&T because we believe in a combined vision of expanding high-speed networks, edge computing, and deep integration with creative content. Coupling the strength of the evolving AT&T network with Magic Leap's spatial computing platform can transform computing experiences for people".

AT&T said it has struck a deal with Magic Leap to invest in the secretive startup, provide mobile data service and become the "exclusive wireless distributor" of its products.

During the same developer session where they announced the date, they also showed some video capture of the headset in action, giving us our first actual look at how well the device works. The user controls the AR elements using hand gestures, such as a pinching motion for selecting.

There'll be full support for Vulkan (which is recommended by Magic Leap), OpenGL 4.5 and OpenGL ES 3.1.
