'This advanced technology allows our brain to naturally process digital objects the same way we do real-world objects, making it comfortable to use for long periods of time, ' Magic Leap said.
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. But CEO Rony Abovits teased on Twitter that more information about ML Next is headed our way later this week. 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.
