There’s a new partnership in town. That of Magic Leap and Lucasfilm’s ILMxLAB! And the first thing the duo released was this gorgeous video featuring two absolutely iconic characters from Star Wars!
I know Magic Leap has been a little tight lipped about the details of their product (a light weight mixed reality headset), and the 1000 odd users that have tested it have definitely complied with their NDAs, but once you watch this video, you can’t help but hope that this is real. I know I definitely drooled mentally when R2-D2 projected a mixed reality experience onto a real table from within another mixed reality experience!
If the interview is to be believed, the device shall be out “hopefully soon-ish” and this Fall we may see the first of the headsets hit the market! I for one am absolutely looking forward to it 🙂
