Magic Leap today announced that its Magic Leap 2 augmented reality device complies with certain procurement requirements of the Trade Agreements Act (TAA) for its U.S. Government end customers. Under the TAA, the U.S. Government must acquire only end products which are wholly made or substantially transformed in the United States or a “designated country” (which includes countries with whom the United States has a free trade agreement).
Designed to meet the highest enterprise security and safety standards, the Magic Leap 2 is the smallest and lightest augmented reality device designed for use in enterprise and public sector settings. Key innovations, such as an expanded diagonal field of view of up to 70° and Dynamic DimmingTM technology, position the device as the ideal AR tool for daily use in healthcare, manufacturing, light industrial, retail and defense sectors.
“With a focus on quality and security, the Magic Leap 2 is the leading AR device for professionals, being used in the operating room to the manufacturing floor,” said Peggy Johnson, CEO of Magic Leap. “Being able to serve customers that demand the highest-security standards is critical to our business strategy in being the most immersive enterprise AR company on the market.”
The Magic Leap 2 device is substantially transformed in Mexico, a TAA compliant country with whom the United States has a free trade agreement, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement. The Magic Leap 2 is designed in the United States and assembled in the United States and Mexico through complex assembly operations that involve component parts sourced from the US and internationally. Additionally, U.S.-developed operating system software is installed on the hardware in Mexico to give it functionality and allow it to operate as a complete, integrated augmented reality system. Because the Magic Leap 2 is substantially transformed as a result of the operations performed in Mexico, the country of origin of the Magic Leap 2 is Mexico for U.S. government procurement purposes and the Magic Leap 2 is TAA compliant.
