Promising augmented reality startup Magic Leap wasn’t able to make it to the TED conference as originally planned. Rather than leaving hopefuls empty-handed, Magic Leap instead published a demo video that shows how they’ve put a $542 million round of funding led by Google to work over the past several months.
The video, titled “Just another day in the office at Magic Leap,” provides a first-hand view of both productivity and gaming on the mysterious headset. After quickly skimming over a YouTube video and some e-mails, our faceless hero walks over to a table and selects a real-world gun.
The battle is on as we see robotic nemeses drop down from the ceiling. The faceless player gets some help from a turret but once the tank comes crashing through the wall, all bets are off.
Unfortunately, we know little else about the curious newcomer at this time. If they can indeed deliver the type of experience we’re seeing here, they stand a solid chance at competing with other promising products like Microsoft’s HoloLens, HTC's Vive VR and the Oculus Rift.
