Magic Leap has been very outward with their public face regarding their upcoming augmented reality product. They've been promising a great deal, and the media has hyped up their image as a result, using CGI assets provided by Magic Leap and the fact that Google has provided venture capital as fuel for the fire.
However, I have found little actual information regarding the feasibility of such a product, both technologically speaking and for the consumer. We know VR-ready (opaque) light field displays have been done before and are reasonably practical (physically speaking; rendering is another challenge), but what Magic Leap describes is a very different experience.
I was hoping their 40-minute MIT Technology Review 10 Breakthrough Technologies video interview would be clarifying in this regard, but I felt it was not. The closest thing to a physical description was the CEO using phrases in passing like "dynamic wavefront of light", "light-sculptures that are continuously interacting with our eye-brain system", "silicon photonics", and "3-dimensional matrix with nanostructure".
Can they deliver what they are promising? Is it feasible for this to come to the consumer in the next 1-3 years and change people's lives in the way they imply?
