We at Magic Leap believe these inputs into the eye-brain system are incorrect — and can cause a spectrum of temporary and/or permanent neurologic deficits,”

“I personally experienced a number of these stereoscopic 3D issues — and would not wear these devices — especially knowing that digital light-field systems are on the way and safe,”

AR startup product will use a projector in their product that shines light into your eye and the light that shines in your eye will similar to the light that the user used to receive from the outer real world. In that AMA, Abovitz hasn’t mentioned nay clues regarding the project’s release date, He mentioned that the product will be especially used for viewing movies as well as for playing games.
