Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund joins a clutch of global names such as Google, Alibaba, Qualcomm, Time Warner’s Warner Bros and JP Morgan Investment Management which have invested in Magic Leap.

The Florida-based company, which employs about 1,400 people, is working on an augmented reality headset that superimposes 3-D virtual images on the real world. Magic Leap says it will ship the device some time this year.
