Magic Leap, an augmented reality innovator, is launching a developer platform that will allow third-party coders to test out and build upon its technology. Augmented reality superimposes digital features onto a view of the real world (as opposed to virtual reality, which replaces your view of the real world with a 360-degree view of a different world.) A video released in March gave some insight into the possibilities of Magic Leap's technology, which shoots light directly into the eye to create illusions.
