For the curious, here are a number of close-up shots of the Magic Leap One's optics and the magnetic attachment that can be swapped out for a version with lenses matching your glasses prescription in the near future.
If you look closely, you'll notice the horizontal banding layers of the waveguide. I believe the little things at the ends of the wires you see are IR emitting LEDs used for the eye tracking sensor. They're not visible when you're actually wearing the headset. Neither is the banding.

The IR LEDs are recessed in little cut-outs in the protective layer that covers the wave guides.
The magnetic clip-in frame can be swapped for ones with prescription lenses to be released in the future.
The lenses are not very dark. They look like a light pair of sunglasses. However, they are fairly reflective on the outside, so, if anything, ambient reflections obscure the view of the waveguides more than their shading.
You can't see anything other than a tiny slit where the waveguides curve into the sides where the light engine projectors are.
Those are just a few close-up looks for those of you who haven't taken the dive yet into what Magic Leap calls the "Magicverse." Stay locked in on Next Reality as we continue to dissect Magic Leap's long-awaited spatial computing device.
