Meta reportedly wants to license Magic Leap’s AR technology


Magic Leap told the Financial Times partnerships were becoming asignificant line of business and growing opportunity for Magic Leap. Additionally, in a blog post titled Whats Next for Magic Leap, CEO Peggy Johnson said late last year the company had received an incredible amount of interest from across the industry to license our IP and utilize our patented manufacturing process to produce optics for others seeking to launch their own mixedreality technology.

The timing of the report is notable for a couple of reasons.

The partnership could also see the startup assist with manufacturing Meta devices, thereby allowing the tech giant to produce more of its VR headsets domestically at a time when theres more pressure for US companies to lessen their dependence on China.

Meta did not immediately respond to Engadgets comment request.

Details on the negotiations are few, but according to the outlets sources, a potential partnership is not expected to produce a jointly developed headset.
