Magic Leap Claims This Kickass Reality-Bending Raygun Game Is Real
J Thoendell stashed this in Oculus
Remember Magic Leap, the elusive Google-funded company promising to make virtual objects look like they exist in the real world? The one whose technology we've never actually seen? The secretive startup just released this incredible video filled with robots, retro rayguns, and a holodeck-like user interface.
Oh, and the company claims this is a real game that real Magic Leap employees are actually playing around the office today.
Honestly, it's pretty hard to take the company at its word that this is entirely real and not just an artist's interpretation of what the technology will be. (I've asked the company to clarify.) Last I'd heard—take this with a grain of salt—Magic Leap hadn't yet miniaturized the tech to the point where you could actually wear a full-color display on your head, much less roam around a room, grab rayguns and shoot up a room.
But that doesn't make this video any less cool.
