Of course, it is understandable for a collection of early adoptors to be so excited. "Opportunities are almost endless," said Nicholas Loomis, a marketing director for Exokit, a VR / AR browser for mixed reality experiences.

Khan was part of a long three-hour keynote, where the company made several announcements: nationwide availability of headsets starting in October, collaborating with key developers such as ILMxLAB and Weta Workshop and that it could soon be supported by two controllers . While the keynote was long, there were no live demos of the headset on the stage, which is unusual, especially for an initial developer conference. Although Magic Leap is aware that the headset is better experienced in person than in a live demo, there must have been a way to show what it could do on stage.
