Magic Leap – Augmented Reality Vision
A super-secret start-up that raised $542 million dollars from Google from just a pitch. Magic Leap is rumored to be creating the world’s most advanced augmented reality technology, dubbed Cinematic Reality™. Founded by an American-Israeli, their development center just opened in Tel Aviv. Applications for the glasses will be limitless, but school kids will soon be interacting with dinosaurs in classrooms as opposed to sifting through textbooks. Intense.
(P.S.- Check out what a game played on Magic Leap looks like here.)
Fair Fly – Save Money On Your Airfare Automatically

Rebooking is done in seconds through the app. The cancellation fee is taken into account, and you’ll only be notified if the difference is well worth it. Traveling soon?
