Magic Leap Patent Filed?

magic leapThere is a secretive company known as Magic Leap which is supposed to be valued at $4.5 billion, and yet the company has not revealed its product. I’m not even certain what it is, but it looks like some kind of virtual reality or augmented reality headset.

This is a design patent given for Magic Leap, and it looks like some kind of bike helmet, doesn’t it? That, or Space Ranger’s helmet. You know, I almost don’t feel like explaining the reference to a DC science fiction hero, but it is a sign that we are living in an age of science fiction that has become science fact.

There is apparently a design patent that you see here, but it is not set in stone. In fact, my Source says that this isn’t the first time a Magic Leap patent has surfaced, so whether or not this is true remains to be seen.


Magic Leap could be real, and it is real awesome!

I have seen a lot of interesting interactive scenarios that allow video games to be played off of the screen. I don’t know how else to describe this, but you can see some interesting examples of RoomAlive and IllumiRoom. This time, I want to talk about the Magic Leap.

My Source reveals that they are not certain whether or not this is true. I have to admit that I doubt it myself, but the video claims it is from Magic Leap and Weta Digita, who I believe is the same special effects company that worked on Lord of the Rings.

Don’t quote me on that, though. Also, don’t quote me on a came where your ceiling opens up to let in robots that you must shoot using cool retro-futuristic guns. I am guessing that some wearable is required to make this work, but darn, I really want this to work.
