Magic Leap - strange company. It's called the inmost virtual (or combined in augmented) reality technology start-ups, because of it almost almost nobody knows nothing. Known of that, in spite of so far delivered your product in beta (and even fails terms), it invests most prominent technology investors - Google, Andreessen Horowitz, Kleiner Perkins and others. Florida based Magic Leap beginning of this year for funding immediately attracted $ 793.5 million, and the total number of the company has already invested $ 1.4 billion. One of the founders of Wired, a former executive editor of publications, and now - Chief Maverik, Kevin Kelly'is met with Magic Leap founder, trying to shed light on the secret of his creations.
How exactly it will look like, or product, gigantic Wired article, as in the past, have not been notified, but they give some understanding of what to expect. For example, the innermost VR-Startup prepares its own Microsoft Hollola, version, which, incidentally, will be different from its competitors, because the Magic Leap founder Rony Abovitz turned to other selected track. With work
with biotech experience (his first company designed robotic surgical operations), it is decided that the mixed reality (namely this term - a mixed reality - prefer to use the magic of the Leap) to use not only the wires and sensors, but also in human biology. Artificial Reality - symbiotic technology, in part machine, part of the body, because the reality "break the brain ten ways" and used not only sight, but other senses. The man with the VR-glasses or helmet must be able to turn to go unhindered in any direction and feel what they're doing.
In order to implement this idea, Abovitz your device resolved to your device not only freed from wires (tripping on the cord, the reality intruding into the virtual world and the illusion disappears), but also the vision to cheat correctly: if you see a flying whale 50 meters, your look and have it is directed to exactly 50 meters of the point, rather than a smartphone screen under your nose.
A world without screens. One of the objectives Abovitzo Startup - completely get rid of the screens. A year later, the company is scheduled to work at computer monitors, and virtual screens, which augmented reality glasses can "hang" in any real world. It is worth to this objective in a broader perspective: this technology could potentially send oblivion all around us screens - computers, smart phones, TVs. Apple, Samsung and others time to worry - it's the purest revolutionary innovation, as in the textbook.
It will be necessary to re-invent online games rules.
The researchers found that playing virtual reality emotional charge so intense that people need to rest for about an hour later. In addition, the virtual world will have to reduce the level of violence - the usual first-person shooter with the bloody murder and splashing too depressing.
Virtual reality - the dream of human tracking. Everything you do, wearing the virtual reality helmet or goggles as standard tracked and recorded, because as far as possible the program will remember every aspect: how to behave, what to touch, where we go or fly, which at that time is mood - the better the other users to gain the experience . However, it is obvious that such an array of information about us, our behavior and interests seducing morsel goods manufacturers and service providers. So far, the virtual reality technology developers more interested in technology development and improvement, but the question about the data collected commercialization opportunities will arise inevitably - and quickly.
