Magic Leap's initial conference shows that it has a long way to go



Of course, it is understandable for a collection of early adoptors to be so excited. "Opportunities are almost endless," said Nicholas Loomis, a marketing director for Exokit, a VR / AR browser for mixed reality experiences. He told me that he has spent a lot of time with the LeapCon community, and is inspired by the fact that he is at the beginning of a new era of computing. "It affects every industry," he said. "It will be Internet 2.0. Instead of VR, where you enter a world, this brings the virtual world out."

"It's an overlay on reality and lets us optimize our lives," he said. "We are moving towards humans as calculating units."

<p>  The designers I spoke to were happy to create in a new medium. "As a designer, I'm used to designing for monitors," said Robin Hunicke, CEO and co-founder of Funomena, a VR / AR gaming studio in San Francisco. "When I develop a 3D image and project it on a 2D screen, I'm very good at it and I'm used to doing it." But VR and AR are different animals. AR specifically means losing control because you have no idea how a person's living room will look. "I need to physically influence you to move your body, to create a certain feeling in you. I can pace you how to move and experience things." </p>
<p>  Omar Khan, the Chief Product Officer of the magazine, tells me that the answer to LeapCon has been overwhelming. The company received more demonstration reports than it could fit into the conference venue. "This is LeapCon," he said. "This is just the beginning. There are so many more experiences – not just demos, but full applications coming." </p><div><script async src=

Khan was part of a long three-hour keynote, where the company made several announcements: nationwide availability of headsets starting in October, collaborating with key developers such as ILMxLAB and Weta Workshop and that it could soon be supported by two controllers . While the keynote was long, there were no live demos of the headset on the stage, which is unusual, especially for an initial developer conference. Although Magic Leap is aware that the headset is better experienced in person than in a live demo, there must have been a way to show what it could do on stage.

<p>  It seems that the Magic Leap focus with LeapCon is software over hardware. Given the platform is desperate content needs, it's not a bad place to start. When I asked Khan what kind of applications would be great for magic leap and spatial computing, he just said, well everything. </p>
<p>  "If you think about it, everything in the world is spatial. When we design, we design with our hands. When we talk, we talk to each other, "he said. Still, he suggested that the best applications for spatial computing are to make us more present with each other." Digital tools like our phones have brought us closer, but they have also took us out of being present. One of the spatial data processing features is that we are aware of each other. My face is not in my phone. "</p><div><script async src=

" Communication and collaboration will be some of the early applications because they are naturally spatial, "continued Khan. Wacom, for example, revealed a partnership where you could collaborate on a design with a true Wacom pen, drawn over a virtual space. Magic Leap also introduced Avatar Chat, a multi-user chat room application where you deal with your friends and family through friendly comic-like avatars. The idea resembles Facebook's room, but Khan said that this would be put in the real world , which made it feel more 'present' and lifelike.

<p>  Another Potentially useful application is a CGI character named Mica, created by the Magic Leap team as evidence of the concept of what personal assistants may look like an enlarged reality. Unlike other virtual characters, she can actually look at you, sharper on you, so you feel you were listened to. [19659002] Karen Harris, CEO of Innovative Technology for Intu, a mall franchise in the UK, thought the same idea would make a great personal shopping assistant in malls. "Imagine she could know your likes and dislikes based on a Facebook profile, and choose the perfect gift for you," Harris said. "It's the future of shopping." </p>
<p>  Nevertheless, even Magic Leap seems to be aware that a new new medium as an enlarged reality must approach with caution. By the mentioned keynote, Hunicke said it is important that the creators ask themselves what their disturbances are and how it can affect their creations. </p>

<p> " Whe When you look at Magic Leap and see the potential to really transform the reality, to be a new dimension to reality, it's very important to think about what you're trying to say to the audience, she told Engadget. "How do you see the world will affect how you hit the world for them. For this first class of Leapers, it's important to ask ourselves these questions now." For example, she said, when the film was first invented, it did not catch dark dark skin tones very well, which reflected bias at that time. Now, with something like Magic Leap, which can literally act as a filter in your real world, she said it's important to think about the inclusion and diversity of perspectives right from the start. </p>
<p>  "This can be a union force," she said. "It can help us learn to see each other more clearly. And that can be a very exciting opportunity." </p>
<p>  Although developers and designers tell me that the possibilities for the programs are endless, I still can not help but focus on here and now. Currently the headset is really not ready for the public. The display area, while it is wider and higher than the Microsoft Holholens, is still limited – when I played <i> Angry Birds </i> or Star Wars <i> Porgs </i> I still had to move my head upside down , left and right to get a full extent of my environment. Lightpack, which houses the headset's computer, must be worn separately in the pocket or strap, which I found a little cumbersome. All of this may be good for developers and early adopters, but I do not think it's very consumer friendly. A healthy skepticism seems more appropriate. </p>

<p>  I respect and understand the excitement that developers have around to create content for a new medium. But after set up and fall of Google's glass, I'm skeptical that consumers may not have the same enthusiasm. Intus Harris shares the same concern. "They need to get this headset to the hands of the people," she said. "This can not just be a unit for the crowd. They need to get the audience into this." </p><div><script async src=

Khan from Magic Leap clearly indicates that consumers are already there. "Consumers already expect this," he said, adding that the audience has seen similar ideas from films such as Minority Report or Ready Player One . "Hollywood and science fiction have already shown consumers what possible. We've seen this in books and movies. We're already educated."

"It's an appetite for it," he said. "Now we just try to close the gap."
