    Pros: 

    AR is the future. Anybody pushing it further is great.

    Cons: 

    I really don't want to walk around looking like a blind Radar from Mash with a catheter on my hip holding a remote control.

    Until AR is integrated into the same type of your normal glasses you wear daily, that can blend in without much notice, it will always struggle to take off.

    Edwin Tofslie has never used this product.
  • Pros: 

    AR will change the way we interact with the world. Hands-free is the way to go.

    Cons: 

    How easy will it be to build apps on top of it?

    If this thing is around $400 I'm going to buy one.

    As a developer, it would be awesome if I could do things like access documentation on an AR screen while working on my code. I wonder how easy it will be to build these types of "everyday" applications.

    I play games, but as a developer and business person, games won't be my number one use. Adding contextual data to what I'm doing is what I'm after.

    Robert Dempsey has never used this product.

For magic leap to justify the hype and it's valuation it has to be the OASIS

@chris_herd i’d not be surprised if spielberg, cline and co will have a tie-in come the theatrical release in march

@chris_herd - More like the AR in Vernor Vinge's _Rainbows End_.

This looks a bit different than the leaked prototype from Business Insider earlier this year. Magic Leap has remains super stealthy over the years yet managed to raise nearly $2B (!!!) in funding, dropping the occasional teaser video:
Expectations are incredibly high, but so is the opportunity. AR will dramatically change the way we see the world, communicate, and interact with technology. It's just a matter of when. Curious to hear what everyone thinks of this. The device is shipping in 2018.

@rrhoover wow those are bulkier than I imagined! Hopefully it is a lot better than the holo lens. I tried the holo lens and it was underwhelming.

@rrhoover I think this is actually going to be a big leap forward. Followed since its birth, I've found many "philosophical" aspects that Rony is taking care of, matching my thoughts regarding how this kind of things should be done, that he's breaking my quite hard barriers. Plus, I like the website :) And the "Platform Features" section is poetry coming from another world.

@rickats "You keep what you kill" could be their marketing hook.
