Magic Leap One

It looks like something out of science fiction. In a way, it is. One of the most hyped tech releases in years, the Magic Leap One uses proprietary technology to blur the line between the physical and digital like never before.

A bevy of sensors in the Lightwear headset maps the surfaces, planes, and objects surrounding you. The belt-mounted Lightpack computing puck then generates digital light at different depths to produce lifelike digital objects that not only appear in but interact with the real world. The first developer units will start shipping 2018.

Google Pixelbook

Pixelbook is the thinnest, lightest laptop Google has ever made, at just 10.3mm and 1.1 kilograms. It has a 4-in-1 design, so you can use it as a laptop, fold the keyboard underneath to easily watch your favorite show, read your favorite book or take notes in tablet mode when you’re on the go, or prop it into tent mode as you follow along with a recipe in the kitchen.

Pixelbook starts up in seconds, stays fast throughout the day, and won’t slow down over time. Chrome OS provides a more secure computing experience, with multiple layers of security and automatic updates. Pixelbook uses Intel Core i5 and i7 processors and plenty of RAM to smoothly handle your multitasking needs.

With storage options up to 512 GB, you can store documents, movies, music and apps, and Google Drive will sync your most recent Google Docs, Sheets and Slides to your device, so you can keep working and watching even when you’re offline. Pixelbook’s battery lasts up to 10 hours and if you run low on juice, 15 minutes of charging gets you up to two hours. You can also use your Pixelbook charger with your Pixel phone, giving you one less thing to carry around.

Alongside Pixelbook Google introduced the Google Pixelbook Pen, a smart, responsive stylus which gives you a natural and comfortable feel when you are sketching and writing. Pixelbook Pen uses machine learning for handwriting recognition, and Google has reduced latency to just 10 milliseconds—so it feels as fast as writing with a pen on paper. It also has 60 degrees of angular awareness and 2,000 levels of pressure sensitivity, so it’s fast and responsive and naturally follows your hand movements.

Pixelbook is available in three configurations starting at $999., so you can choose the processing power, memory and storage you want. The Pixelbook Pen is $99. Both will be on sale at the Google Store and major retailers, including Best Buy.
