Magic Leap has been full of headlines this year. From their sex discrimination lawsuit to another round of funding, the stealth startup has been able to make a lot of noise around their company. However, they have yet to deliver any concrete proof of their upcoming product and the mixed reality technology that they’ve been working on over the past few years.
So far, the only evidence they’ve displayed was at the DICE Summit where their Chief Game Wizard, Graeme Devine, showcased one of their mixed reality experiences called “Ghost Girl”. In this concept game, a digital imaged character comes to life where she’s able to distinctly recognize the user and use the physical environment around you to build an immersive storytelling experience.
According to Devine, their mixed reality technology will be able to create the next generation of gaming where users literally become a part of the story. “Now the games happen on our side of the piece of glass, in our homes, to us directly,” said Devine. “You’re on an adventure in your own house where a ghost is helping you solve a mystery that happened to you directly.”
Magic Leap has also released a new video today that tells the story of how Magic Leap all began. This is the first official video released by the company in over a year. According to their team, Magic Leap was “born on a road trip that has taken them all over the globe and into the future.” They have stated that the whole story will be coming soon. This video is part one of their series.
The video doesn’t show any of their mixed reality products and rather features some of their team members working on something at their house and offices. while it’s quite disappointing that we don’t get to see their product in the video, it might be an indication that Magic Leap is closer than we all think.
