Magic Leap CEO Rony Abovitz has responded to the reports that said the AR startup "oversold" the device it's working on.

The product in question is an AR headset that sports the same form factor as a pair of common glasses with a lot of power under the hood, and the people behind it have promised it would boast revolutionary technology that'll trump the competition such as Microsoft's HoloLens.

However, The Information recently revealed that the company is having some problems in making that a reality. That said, Abovitz hints otherwise.

Abovitz: Production Test Runs Already In Gear

Taking things to Twitter, Abovitz says that Magic Leap's factory is now conducting "mini-production runs" of the device, describing it as "small, sleek, and cool."

Of course, this contradicts earlier claims that product is far from happening. More than that, he also posted on Magic Leap's blog, urging everyone to "stay tuned."
