iFixit dissects the $2,299 Magic Leap One so you don’t have to
Every time a new, expensive gadget becomes commercially available, you can expect the glue-and-screw crew at iFixit to quickly pounce. This month’s Magic Leap One headset, now available for a cool $2,299, is no exception, and iFixit has now posted a treasure trove of photos and thoughts on the “mixed reality” device’s tech, performance, and repairability.
“This device is unlike anything we’ve torn down in the past,” the site’s authors write in their lengthy ML1 article. This teardown includes an unusually lengthy explanation of how Magic Leap’s first commercially available headset renders virtual images, à la Microsoft’s Hololens.
