The stated FoV ends up being larger than that described by Rolling Stone
author Brian Crecente in his hands-on with the device. However, Magic
Leap's approach from a hardware and software perspective aligns with
Crescente's testimonial that Magic Leap was "working on ways to make
that less obvious."
So while the Magic Leap One will surpass the
first-generation HoloLens in terms of FoV, it may come up far short of
other headsets, such as Meta 2, on the market. Moreover, if Microsoft applies its recent research and patents in its next iteration of HoloLens, Magic Leap will have some catching up to do.
Shame it can't leave tire tracks on the surfaces, that would require
darkening"Skill" which they can't do. 🙂
