Augmented reality. Mixed reality. Spatial computing. Whatever you want to call the company’s tech, it is making big promises about what it can do. Time to talk to the man running the show.

Peter Kafka covers media and technology, and their intersection, at Vox. Many of his stories can be found in his Kafka on Media newsletter, and he also hosts the Recode Media podcast.

Want to talk to the man running one of the the most-buzzed about — and secretive — technology startups in years? Me, too.

That’s why I’m delighted to announce that Magic Leap CEO Rony Abovitz is joining us at Code Media next month. You should come, too.

Abovitz says his company has created a game-changing augmented reality technology — he calls it “spatial computing” — that can revolutionize gaming, movies and much more. After years of work — and billions in funding from the likes of Google and Alibaba — he has promised to start shipping devices this year.

Kara Swisher and I have a lot of questions. We bet you do as well. So join us, along with a jam-packed lineup of media and tech executives and entrepreneurs, at the Paséa Hotel & Spa in Huntington Beach, Calif., Feb. 12 and 13.

Sign up here and we’ll see you there.
