Magic Leap One is officially launching in Europe one year after it launched in the U.S. market. The initial shipments had been to only a few selected US cities and each order was sold with a complimentary delivery service through a partnership with a company known as LiftOff. The products were delivered to the buyer in person with delivery agent handing the products to the buyer and also assisting with the setup.
Limiting the initial shipments to six cities initially limited the reach of the devices across the US but some companies soon created a roundabout way of going about the restrictions by placing orders via a New York-based third-party company known as Big Apple Buddy which enabled buyers from anywhere in the US to order the mixed reality headsets.
Like their US counterparts in the cities that were left out in the initial roll-out, buyers in Europe could only order the augmented reality glasses by also going through some costly and inconvenient workarounds. However, the Magic Leap One glasses will now be launching officially in the European market, enabling buyers there to purchase the products directly. The EU version of the product will come with a warranty and will offer buyers a safer and more convenient means of accessing the product.
The European launch is already getting underway. Information on Magic Leap website shows that the company has already deposited its EU Declaration of Conformity in German, English and French.
The declaration mandates the manufacturer of a product to be sold in the EU market to confirm that that the product will meet the health and safety requirements set by EU. Essentially, the declaration is a CE marking.
Although no specific dates have been provided, it won’t be long before we see a European launch. Magic Leap has already added support for various European languages including German, French and English (UK) in it latest update of the One glasses operating software.
The retail price for which the headsets will be listed in the European market hasn’t been provided yet. During the Magic Leap One’s one year anniversary, the founder and CEO Rony Abovitz had stated that the past one year had been one “discovery and exploration”. The next generation of Magic Leap glasses will likely arrive within two to three years and will provide support for 5G.
