So, there is now a competitor to Microsoft’s HoloLens in the market. To Augmented Reality enthusiasts, this is nothing new: For several months now, all the AR-focused media channels and social media have been abuzz with news and reports on the “magical” new darling in AR. I also had a look at the new Magic Leap One.
Many tech mags and independent experts have given their two cents on the device, on what makes it great, where it falls short and how it compares to HoloLens. Most of these reports have just focused on the technology itself. With Zühlke being a provider of larger industrial solutions, however, I’d like to offer my own take on Magic Leap One by pointing out how it holds up in industrial scenarios.
