    No way it's real. It screams SFX demo. It's dismaying the way the tech press is uncritically hyping this.

    Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from hype, er magic.

    And to my understanding, the news was that MagicLeap is still vaporware?

    Pretty well. Hype and hot air. An infomercial masquerading as an interview but with no actual product to demonstrate. Assuming it is real, I can't parse how the failure of 3D TV was chalked up to people not wanting to wear glasses for an hour or two but suddenly people will want to wear clunky headgear like this and be tethered to a computer.

    Vaporware that’s gotten nearly $2B in investor money!
