However, as of the 9th of August the Magic Leap One Creator Edition goes on sale for $2,295. this is aimed at developers and is not consumer ready.

Magic Leap CBO Rachna Bhasin commented: “Shutterstock has a stellar reputation as being the leading global provider of high-quality licensed images, videos, and music, and their content has inspired countless creators across the world.”
