Thanks to the popularity of games like Pokemon Go and the upcoming Harry Potter game, augmented reality is starting to become a lot more common in our world. But, using your smartphone is not the ideal platform when it comes to serious large-scale gaming. For that, you’ll want something dedicated, like the Magic Leap AR glasses.

The brand has been teasing their augmented reality tech for a couple of years now, but it looks like they’ve finally got the hardware to back it up. The high-tech gadget (which comes with a single controller and a small belt-worn battery pack) features a smart system that generates realistic lighting effects (which blend with real-life), can auto-detect surfaces and walls to incorporate them into the digital landscape, offers realistic depth and direction of sound, and can do it all in real time and 3D. This version of the super advanced AR system is geared specifically toward developers, but it will be available in early 2018.
