> Abovitz says the high cost is justified because over time, a Magic Leap headset can replace “your phones, your televisions, your laptops, your tablets, which add up to thousands of dollars.”
LoLoLoLoL, No. Not gonna replace any of those things any time soon.
When I, and they, say 'replace', they are talking about wide scale adoption of Magic Leap *along with* wide scale reduction of what's being replaced.
It's gonna and it's gonna fail because the hype is high and it will never live up to the hype. Not this time around.
Next, unless there is a magic leap in ouch less UI control, then how will you interact with it? Voice? No try doing that in a noisy environment. Watch TV? Maybe, but much of the experience of watching TV is interacting with those around you. Laptop, tablet? Hardly.
If it works well, it might be additive technology. I'd love a pair of AR glasses that were useful. But replacement? Nope.
