Magic Leap has reportedly secured another $827 million in Series C funding, according to sources of Forbes. If the report is true, it means Magic Leap has raised over $1.4 billion in total. What is Magic Leap? Its a new form of augmented reality that blends real life with holograms. Take a look below.



The augmented reality start-up kicked off its funding rounds in February 2014, where it raised over $50 million to work on its "Cinematic Reality" platform. Later in the year, it raised $542 million in Series B financing. The company hasn't announced its Series C funding, but Forbes said it had filings that it secured through private market data tracker VC Experts.


As for the dynamics of Magic Leap, MIT Review's Rachel Metz discusses how the new tech will work. "Essentially, [Magic Leap] has developed an itty-bitty projector that shines light into your eyes-light that blends in extremely well with the light you're receiving from the real-world," Metz said after trying a live demo test of Magic Leap tech.
