If there's a human being who knows more about virtual reality than Kevin Kelly, I'd sure like to make their acquaintance. Kevin was WIRED's founding executive editor in 1992 and has long been our Senior Maverick. But he was experimenting with, reporting on, and writing about experiential platforms long before WIRED existed. Which is why Kevin's was the first number I dialed after visiting the (until now) mysterious startup Magic Leap in suburban South Florida. Who better to write our cover story on Rony Abovitz's provocative "mixed reality" technology--digital overlays on the real world--than a man who helped define the way WIRED and everyone else think about new media?
