Earlier reports said the Magic Leap One had cut some staff and delayed the launch of its new product because of poor sales of its first-generation headset. Media point out that even though it costs $1,000 less than Microsoft’s HoloLens, is on par with The HoloLens 2, and is supported by big companies like Google, developers are still critical of Magic Leap One.

Magic Leap has reportedly sold only 6,000 units and left a pretty bad impression on developers. A developer named Nostalgicbear wrote in a post evaluating poor sales:
I’ve been working on a Magic Leap project for about four months, but it’s definitely a nightmare. It left me with the worst development experience and definitely didn’t deserve to be recommended to anyone.
The device undergoes multiple reboots a day, potentially losing tracking of its opponents and images, not to mention other machine learning-related features.
As for Magic Leap’s remote control, the connected device is never recognized, or a reboot is required to use it. THE PCF IS ALSO UNRELIABLE AND IS NOT AVAILABLE AT ALL.
As a result, we must constantly use image trackers to calibrate positions, especially when running between device sessions.
Access to the basic functions of building on the keyboard is also not yet useful, and in some ways it is frustrating. And the device will continue to heat up, once the nose is hot, can not bear to wear.
In another post, developers praised the development experience on Microsoft Hololens, saying they were impressed by the proven Unity and Software Development Kit (SDK), as well as wireless push out-of-the-box.
However, the painting took a turn for the worse, and the developer’s own painful development experience on the Magic Leap One platform.
Although the company has received more than $2.3 billion from investors such as Google, Ali, AND AT?amp;T, the actual product is a boasting feeling.
Earlier,media reported that dozens of Magic Leap employees had been laid off and that two executives, Chief Financial Officer Scott Henry and Senior Vice President of Creative Strategy John Gaeta, had left the company.
Magic Leap’s next headset may not be available until a few years later, due to a number of headwinds.
