Magic Leap 2 will launch later this year, confirms CEO Peggy Johnson

Magic Leap is preparing to unveil its next augmented reality headset later this year, and CEO Peggy Johnson revealed in an interview with Protocol when the product will go on sale. A limited supply of units will be released through an early adopter program by the end of 2021, and the company plans to make Magic Leap 2 more widely available in early 2022.

The upcoming headset will be half the size of the current model and about 20 percent lighter, Johnson said. Despite these adjustments, Johnson said engineers have doubled the field of view in Magic Leap 2. “The optics around it are complex, but we have a very talented engineering team,” she said.

The company reportedly sold only 6,000 units of the Magic Leap One Creator Edition in the first six months it was available. It later shifted its focus from the consumer market to business.

Johnson, who became CEO in August after being laid off, confirmed to Protocol that her team is “focusing on business for the launch of Magic Leap 2.” She noted that the healthcare sector is a particularly exciting one for the company. “Augmented reality can transform healthcare more than any other industry, at least in the short term,” Johnson said.

Magic Leap competes with a number of major players in the augmented reality sector, some of which are more focused on consumers. Facebook, Apple, Pokémon Go developer Niantic and Snap are all working on AR devices. Last month, Microsoft beat Magic Leap to a 10-year contract worth reportedly $21.9 billion to provide AR technology to the U.S. military.
