Magic Leap Nearing New Headset Launch, Seeking More $

Plantation, Fla.-based augmented reality/wearable computing start-up Magic Leap could be about to get a massive cash infusion from Singaporean investment firm Temasek, according to several published reports.

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).”
