BBC Studios has partnered with PRELOADED, the London-based AR/VR studio, to bring a new experience to Magic Leap One that aims to explore the tiny kingdoms of Mother Nature.
Called BBC Earth – Micro Kingdoms: Senses, the upcoming AR experience is said to offer users a chance to interactively explore micro habitats from the natural world and bring you face-to-face with its’ inhabitants, something its creators say will confront the user with “the invisible senses that guide their behaviour and help them survive.”
If the experience’s web page is anything to go on, the experience looks to focus on the creepy crawlies of the world, such as ants and spiders.
BBC Earth – Micro Kingdoms: Senses is slated to launch on Magic Leap One at some point this fall.
“The ambition of the Natural History Unit is always to connect new audiences in new ways to the wonders of the natural world – and in working with PRELOADED on this exciting new project we are achieving that in groundbreaking new ways,” said Doug Hope, executive producer at BBC Studios’ Natural History Unit.
The experience was developed by PRELOADED in collaboration with BBC Studios and their Natural History Unit, and funded by the Magic Leap Independent Creator Program. Preloaded is also known for creating the award-winning VR experience BBC Earth: Life in VR (2018), as well as iOS AR experience A Brief History of Amazing Stunts.
