The communications company, which has also invested in Magic Leap, will allow its customers to test the One viewer in some of its stores.
AT & amp; T has announced a strategic agreement with Magic Leap by the which will carry out the distribution in the united States edition for consumers viewer One, once it is available, as well as the investment (have not specified the amount, only that she completed the last round of financing of series D), and collaboration to deliver content and services to users of the new platform. As the” exclusive wireless distributor ” of Magic Leap products in that country, AT&T customers will be among the first to test the device at stores in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco. In this way, they confirm that the augmented reality viewer will reach stores, as anticipated by the job offer last February.
“AT & amp; T is pleased to combine our pioneering technologies, unmatched network, content platform and vast customer ecosystem with Magic Leap’s efforts to build the next generation of computing,” he says John Donovan“We are designing and delivering the future of entertainment and connectivity, and this exclusive agreement, in combination with our leadership position in 5G, will open up new opportunities and experiences.”
According to AT&T, the One viewer will be distributed this year to a select group of designers and developers, although as Magic Leap has already advanced, anyone can purchase the product. For a few months now, the device has been in the hands of some partners.
“We joined AT&T because we believe in a combined vision of high-speed network expansion, innovative computing, and deep integration with creative content,” says Rony Abovitz, CEO of Magic Leap. “Uniting the strength of the evolving AT&T network with Magic Leap’s spatial computing platform can transform people’s computing experiences.”
Magic Leap, for its part, will share today (at 20:00 on Twitch) “some specs” and a “demo” of One, although it may not be what we all expect, as the official live description does not indicate if it will really be a demo with the viewer: “Alan Noon will be joined by Alan Kimball from our developer tools team to delve deeper into Magic Leap One. Then Colman Bryant from our interactions lab will give us a demonstration of a sample we call Dodge.” In a few hours we’ll be out of doubt.
