We've waited nearly four years to see what Magic Leap's $2.3 billion magic is all about -- and how much of that magic the company's first headset, the Magic Leap One, can truly deliver. 

Today, right now, we're finding out.

And the first announcement, right out of the gate: Magic Leap says its headset finally has a release window. It'll ship this summer.

At 11 a.m. PT (that's 2 p.m. ET or 7 p.m. in the UK) Magic Leap started hosting its third livestream on Twitch, and this time the company says it'll have a real demo in tow: "We'll dive into some Magic Leap One specs and share a demo of an upcoming developer sample," the company


Here's what we've learned so far:

It's finally coming this summer.

Magic Leap has been in secretive, NDA-only stealth mode for so long it's hard to believe, but the company just announced right at the beginning of the stream: The first product will ship this summer -- and since we're already partway through summer, it's coming pretty soon eh? 

We already know where you'll be able to try and buy it, by the way: AT&T -- since Magic Leap announced that AT&T will get an exclusive on Magic Leap's products earlier this morning.screen-shot-2017-12-20-at-11-30-02-am

Hello, specs!

Magic Leap hasn't dished out a lot of technical details quite yet, but the company did just tell us about the processor inside -- it's an Nvidia Tegra X2 system-on-chip with two of Nvidia's higher-than-usual-for-phones-power Denver processor cores inside.

They also say it runs on an undisclosed 64-bit Linux-based operating system with "lots of parts from other systems," and they're recommending that devs use the low-level Vulkan graphics API if they're building their own game engines. 

The company kind of dodged a question about power consumption by saying efficiency is up to Magic Leap's software developers, but Magic Leap had previously said battery life would be "several hours".

Developing... we're adding more details to this story as we get them. Refresh in a couple minutes for more, or just watch the stream.
