Alongside today’s Magic Leap One launch, the company has revealed five applications destined for the AR headset made by Magic Leap Studio’s, the company’s internal development team.
Magic Leap One Creator Edition is now available for purchase and early adopters are expected to soon begin receiving their devices. Some of the first apps they’ll get to experience will come from Magic Leap Studios, which the company describes as, “an eclectic team of animators, producers, artists, developers and superheroes dedicated to making the weird and wonderful come to life.”
While not all of the five applications that Magic Leap revealed today will be available right away, they give a glimpse of the experience the company hopes the headset will deliver. Here’s a rundown:
Together with Sigur Rós we set out to discover and manifest the DNA of their sound in a new reality. The result of that collaboration is Tónandi, which translates to sound spirit in Icelandic, an interactive audio-visual exploration of the sounds and spirit of Sigur Rós.
Step into a delightfully weird new world of colorful characters, art and physics. Because Magic Leap One understands the world around you, physical and digital barriers dissolve and a new dynamic landscape manifests in your room.
Dr. Grordbort’s Invaders
The evil robots from the Robot Planet have chosen this building, this very room, to stage their invasion of Earth through port holes in your walls and floor. So you’d better grab your ray gun, get blasting and send them back home in pieces. Adventure has never been bigger, gameplay has never been this immersive, and characters have never been so believable that you have to take cover behind the couch.
Cast & Avatar Chat
Spatial computing is meant to be shared. Soon, Cast will let people in the same room see what you see, when and where you see it. Plus, since with Avatar Chat you’ll basically be in the same room, they’ll be able to see the same content and applications, too.
Helio enables 3D objects to be pulled out of websites and into the physical world, transforming passive web browsing into an interactive spatial experience. With the ability to create true-to-life virtual replicas of anything from recipe cards to living room chairs, the world wide web is ready to bring a new era of accessibility to the world.
