Magic Leap, the secretive augmented reality company that managed to raise more than $1 billion of venture capital without a single public glimpse of the product it's building, released a new preview clip today that showcases daily productivity uses for its technology.
The video, titled “A New Morning,” demonstrated a weather notification application, stock market graphs in 3D space, and a messenger system that hovers in the air in front of you. You’ll even be able to shop for shoes (or really anything) and get a life-size 3D preview of the product right in front of you.
The video also previews the future of what school projects could look like. The person recording the clip received a school project from his daughter that was sent as an attachment through the messenger app. The project played out as a hologram in the room, with an animation of Mount Everest accompanied by multiple audio clip annotations.
Magic Leap said that the entire clip was recorded using its technology, so what you see in the video is representative of what you would see through the hardware. The company is still not talking about the hardware used to make augmented reality technology work, though.
