While Microsoft and Facebook were busy drawing attention to their upcoming AR devices, Magic Leap revealed first-person augmented reality demo. The YouTube video hints to some of the new things that people will be able to do with the help of augmented reality glasses.
- Brief description of Magic Leap’s augmented reality technology
- What makes Magic Leap’s technology different from the rest
- Future objectives that Magic Leap wants to achieve
Remember those times when Bluetooth headsets first made their entrance on the market? The general impression was that humanity has gone crazy and that people speak to imaginary persons. Apparently, this was nothing compared to what is due to come, once Magic Leap’s augmented reality headset is released on the market.
The company has recently launched a new video on their YouTube channel letting fans know how their technology works. Judging from the footage, the new augmented reality glasses created by Magic Leap have the ability to incorporate surreal elements in our day to day life. This, is achieved by overlaying the AR vision over the real vision.
The result: users walk, talk and interact with non-existent persons and objects. Taking this into consideration, we are pretty sure augmented reality technology will not revolutionize only our lives, but it will also redefine the concept of ‘crazy’.
The video that the company has published shows how users actually perceive reality when they wear the augmented reality glasses. In one example, a small fictional robot sits under the table and interacts with wearers, whereas in the second example, the wearer is surrounded by all the planets in our solar system.
Magic Leap has made it clear that their augmented reality technology is different from the concept that Facebook’s VR Oculus Rift headset suggests. The latter creates a non-existent reality for the user, whereas the augmented reality headset places a surreal layer on the things we normally perceive.
Unlike other tech developers, who are mainly interested in debating the new augmented reality technology, Magic Leap is keen on making AR glasses real. For this reason, they have recently purchased a Motorola factory where the first consumer products will be developed.
