As reported by The Information and Business Insider, Abovitz recently sent an internal memo halting the dismissal of employees and announcing that Magic Leap has raised $350 million from existing and brand new investors. Though the company has struggled to find commercial success since its founding in 2010, this new investment will help Magic Leap maintain a presence as it aims to bring its “spatial computing” to the masses.
