Share this story

What is Magic Leap doing? In 2014, the company got a half-billion dollar investment, led by Google itself. Its product is reportedly a set of glasses that project hyper-realistic images into the world, and it's been seen only by a select few. The company has promised to let the rest of the world in on the secret soon, revealing some potential uses of the technology. For now, though, we're stuck trying to deduce what Magic Leap's product is, how it works, and whether it's really as good as advertised.
