Magic Leap's next augmented realty headset is on track to be unveiled later this year. From a report: In an interview with Protocol published on Tuesday, CEO Peggy Johnson said the Magic Leap 2 will be released through an early adopter program at the end of this year and will be more generally available in early 2022. Johnson said the new headset, which is intended for enterprise customers, will be lighter and have an improved field of view over the Magic Leap One. 'For frontline workers, the product has to be something comfortable that they can wear all day long,' Johnson told Protocol. 'So we've made the product half the size, about 20% lighter. But most importantly, we've doubled the field of view. That's a hard thing to do. The optics around that are complex, but we have a very talented engineering team.'
