Magic Leap has spent most of its time working behind closed doors, but that hasn't stopped investors from splashing the cash.

Google was one of the first companies to back the startup, with the internet giant leading a $542 million funding round back in 2014. 

The mixed-reality specialist then caught the attention of investors in China, and managed to nab another $793.5 million in February last year.
