- This diagram does not represent the real Magic Leap helmet
The start-up Magic Leap has filed a new patent for an augmented reality headset. The latter has a unique shape, but remains on the same type of technology as other devices on the market. However, the drawings presented do not represent the final version of the helmet.
The mysterious company Magic Leap has filed a new patent with the United States Patent Office, reports The Verge. These official documents show a helmet with a very particular shape, but the latter remains conceptually close to the models available on the market.. Rony Abovitz's company has kept the shape and capabilities of his augmented reality headset a mystery, every time a piece of information filters through it makes a lot of noise.

Mashable contacted a source at Magic Leap, the site revealed that the prototype exposed in the patent was not the correct one. “These diagrams are part of the R&D and validation of experience at Magic Leap,” explains vice-president of public relations Andy Fouché, “your product will not look like this at all. " So we still don't know what this helmet looks like.Next PreviousHelmet diagramsHelmet diagramsHelmet diagramsHelmet diagramsHelmet diagramsHelmet diagramsHelmet diagramsNext Previous
Magic Leap has really cultivated this mystery, and this is perhaps the whole communication strategy of the start-up. Despite the lack of large-scale demonstration, the company has managed to raise more than four billion dollars in investment from prominent companies like Google. Very few people had the opportunity to test their machine, and those who had had the chance came back amazed. The general public will therefore not be able to see the first demonstrations of the helmet for a while. However, if the promises of this technology come true, the wait will have been worth it.
