Magic Leap partners with LucasFilm


Magic Leap teams with LucasFilm to produce AR based StarWars content. While not VR, I can see how the Magic Leap could end up as a nice VR device.

Here’s a video, shown last October, of the Magic Leap. Once thing I notice is the imagery has excellent opacity both in front of and behind RL objects unlike the current HoloLens where its images are translucent. I thought the HoloLens was going to have a light gate in front of the holographic lenses, but that has not happened yet. Looking at the Magic Leap video, it seems to have a programmable light gate. Now the HoloLens is beta (you can get them) and the Magic Leap is pre-alpha, so this is going to be a bit of a wait and see. Exciting nonetheless.
