The founder of Magic Leap, Rony Abovitz emerged from an extended period of silence to tweet some pictures which featured images such as leaping whales and a launching rocketship, some of which contained hints to the company's plans.

As announced at the time of its formal launch late past year, the Magic Leap One goggles offer six degrees of freedom (6DoF) through the bundled Control, which offers force control as well as haptic feedback. Rather, the Creator's Edition is primarily aimed at developers with an eye-watering price-tag of $2,295, although just $700 less than the development version of Microsoft's Hololens headset.
