Bloomberg says Magic Leap, which has already raised more than $1.3 billion, is seeking another half million from investors, and cites sources in saying the company could now be valued at close to $6 billion.
Magic Leap is working on a headset – smaller than VR headsets, but bigger than glasses – that would simulate 3-D images superimposed on the real world, according to Bloomberg.
The Daily Dot, which calls Magic Leap “mysterious” calls the company the “most intriguing player in AR (augmented reality).”
Last month, Upload reported on Magic Leap’s glasses patent, but noted the company says it isn’t the final design.
