Augmented reality in version Magic Leap — a revolution or another “passed”? Trying to understand in absentia

About the company Magic Leap, many of you have probably never heard of. We once wrote about her, but at that time no details was virtually no.

Soon on the market should get the first device of this company, so I decided to tell and show you what it is and why, most likely, it will be a revolution.

So, Magic Leap is a fairly young company founded only eight years ago. The first information in the media about her appeared in the autumn of 2014, when it became known that some previously unknown young company has already managed to collect more than $ 2 billion investment.

The thing was that until that moment, Magic Leap hasn’t shown any demo video, no prototype, no slides, nothing. Only with the first publication, a number of images, and it became clear that the company works on a device with augmented reality.

Then there were several publications, the company continued to raise money, but at least some clarity came with the first video. Here it is:

However, it turned out that in this video the actual schedule is slightly embellished. But after there was already a real video with a headset, which, despite its simplicity, demonstrated main feature of the product.

A feature of this is that the headset is not simply applies the image to real objects. She realizes the three-dimensional structure of the environment and takes account of it, which is clearly seen on the robot, hiding behind the leg of the table.

Then there was another video.

And then another one.

And then there are the technical details. The head of the Magic Leap said that the technology underlying the headset is radically different from anything that’s out there in the consumer market. If any headset uses augmented reality to project an image screen or glass, the device Magic Leap is supposedly projecting the image directly onto the retina of the eye. The company especially cooperated with neuroscientists, as a feature of the technology makes the projected image is practically indistinguishable from reality. It is not about the graphics level, and that the brain will react to virtual images as well as real.

And here at the end of last year, Magic Leap has finally unveiled his creation. Initially, the head of the company promised that the headset can be worn without worrying about your appearance, but the result was… a bit wrong.




The device consists of three separate elements: the headset called Lightwear, the computer unit Lightpack, which connects to the headset via a wire, and controller.

Magic Leap said that the underlying technology is called Digital Lightfield. She “mixes” digital light and real, and based on the concept of the light field, but more clearly I tell you about this, unfortunately, will not tell, as this needs to be a physicist.

The technology used, allows Magic Leap to realize something that had never been done before. First, virtual objects will “interact” with the real and to take them into account. Second, virtual objects will “see” is real.

In my opinion, Magic Leap has chosen the right strategy positioning. She orients their offspring in the first place for games and other entertainment. And then, as I think she has a better chance than Microsoft with its “professional” positioning HoloLens.

By the way, today, Magic Leap has released another series of his programmes in which employees talk about the technologies and other things. In particular, there was a new demonstration.

And it became known that the basis of the headset (rather, the computer unit) is SoC Nvidia Tegra X2. Interestingly that on this platform, previously nothing was known. It is likely that she designed specifically for Magic Leap. Though not from scratch. Judging by the description, it is based on SoC Parker, which showed that in 2016, only the configuration is slightly different.

In particular, X2 is a Tegra dual-core CPU, where two Cortex-A57 cores and one core Denver Nvidia’s own design. And as a GPU — the core of the Pascal generation with 256 CUDA units! In the end, the performance of the original SoC Parker reached 1.5 TFLOPS. Usually, when calculating this parameter is only taken into account the GPU, and it just migrated to the Tegra X2 unchanged. So if I’m right, platform at Magic Leap and a half times more powerful than the Tegra X1, which is inside Nintendo Switch.

In addition, probably, is not the only computing platform headset. Theoretically, there should be a special data processor, which will work exclusively with the formation of the light field. At least, HoloLens has the usual CPU, and a special holographic processor.

On the market Magic Leap needs to come out before the end of the summer. Prices yet, but talking about 1000 dollars or less. In the US it will be exclusive to AT&T and the rest of the world is unclear. Also, while there is no data about the starting lineup of projects, because to release the product without the games and pointless.

If Magic Leap will be exactly the way it is described and shown, it really is a revolution. Still, virtual reality is virtual (Yes, discovered America), but supplemented by — it is quite another matter. Especially when it is implemented as cool as Magic Leap.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all igions under the worship of one God

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God (2 Thessalonians 2:4) For a time he will bring about a false peace, but Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15) then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be (Matthew 24:21)

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast

    EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR – JOHN LENNOX

    We all know God exists Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does Who is capable of knowing everything? God So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major holy books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things Watch a potential life-changing video on the front page of WWW BIBLEFREEDOM COM with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: For the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23)

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself All the law hang on these commands We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish For sin is the transgression of the law We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26) If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2) Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15) When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14)

    The oldest igion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27) What igion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what igion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23) There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment Unlike igion, holiness cannot be created It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit Jesus is more than a igion; He is about having a personal ationship with the Father Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
