Magic Leap’s mixed reality headset might launch today
Magic Leap might finally launch its headset — or announce when it will launch the device — today. The secretive company’s founder, Rony Abovitz, has tweeted hints that seem to point at an event for August 8th. Two of his tweets are illustrations of a flying Magic Leaper (which went out at 8:08PM) and a rocket ready for takeoff, while the third is a link to a Wikipedia article that leads to Roland TR-808. His Twitter banner is also trippy illustration of a Magic Leaper surrounded by flying whales with the numbers 8, 8 and 18 hidden in the background. If you go to the company’s website, you’ll see a rocket starting to take off, as well.
