Magic Leap secretive startup aimed at augmented-reality. They had released a few high-level videos back in time which were very amusing. But on 20th December 2017, this company showed us a new piece of technology which combines virtual world with real.

But unlike others, Magic Leap doesn’t replace real world with virtual it combines them. It has a design similar to a goggle. Futuristic goggles which help you to shop through your walls. Imagine a world in which you can pull the web out of the screen, display on demand, gaming in the real world, connected in physical space with others digitally isn’t is it amazing.
