This is What Star Wars Looks Like Running on Magic Leap

24

This is a quick demonstration video released by ILMxLab and Magic Leap to mark the announcement of the two company’s newly announced collaboration. They’ve set up a “collaboration lab” in order to work on immersive experiences using Lucasfilm IP and driven by Magic Leap’s augmented reality technology.

It shows Star Wars favourites R2D2 and C3PO as digitally rendered characters, overlaid into reality as filmed through Magic Leap’s visor. Note how the objects in real life occlude the digital creations, a tricky effect to pull off when you’re reliying on computer vision techniques to map to reality.
