Whenever the name Magic Leap comes up, the talk inevitably turns to the company's reputable funders and money flows to unicorn levels. Otherwise, observers usually focus on the company's market strategy and overall outlook.
These are all important discussion points, but with all the analytics and predictions, one thing about Magic Leap One seems to get missed a bit too often: it's actually fun to use!
You may know some of the key titles that prove this fact, some of which require more space to be effective and others that are suitable for very specific use cases.  In addition to these apps, there are some lesser known apps available on the device that deserve some recognition. They show great attention to detail, sometimes bizarre approaches and completely different experiences that the augmented reality device offers. These are just a few of these apps that you might not be able to try, but should.
This app, produced by the international interactive studio The Mill, is not a real experience. or a game, rather, it's the satisfying fulfillment of a promise that Magic Leap made years ago. Those who have followed the story of Magic Leap from the beginning will remember how long the company's website has proven the abilities of the then invisible device by showing a person holding a virtual elephant in his hand.
Well, if you're one of those people who say, "Where's the whale?" When the device hit the market for the first time in 2018 (another cult animal that was promised in previous Magic Leap promotions and finally shipped on the device), you should know that you can now "hold" the virtual elephant as well ,
When you launch the app, you must first select a location on the ground to pinned the virtual asset, and then watch as it turns into an elephant baby right in front of your eyes transformed into life size.
When the pachyderm is left alone, it stays in place Idle and occasionally emits friendly roar. But if you lower the controller and stretch your hands in a weighing motion, the animal suddenly shrinks and sits in the palm of your hand. And it remains anchored to your "palm rest" wherever you move it.
It's a simple experience that completes this vision when Magic Leap launched its original boost of consciousness years ago.
Star Wars: Project Porg
My original plan was to give Star Wars Superfans a deep insight into this app, which is rooted in the George Lucas Universe. Unfortunately, the app is so simple and straightforward (as opposed to something advanced like Dr. Grordbort's Invaders) that it's best to briefly mention it here.
First, there's something really magical about Star Wars holograms on Looking at cinema screens as it has been projecting R2D2 for so many years and years finally experience in real life. It really closes the loop of science fiction, which in a sense is finally becoming reality.
When you launch the app you will be aware of the familiar form of C -3PO welcomed as (intentionally) blurred hologram is displayed. The robot's familiar voice and nervous chatter quickly take you into the world of Star Wars.
Soon the Porgs appear and it quickly becomes clear that the main goal of the game (at least as long as I've been playing) is to train and feed the Porgs. The virtual creatures are cute, playful, awkward and fascinating to look at and feed – for a while.
Training and feeding Porgs as a focal point of the experience can be Be worth hours of engagement if you're really obsessed with Porgs, but if not, being trapped in the Porgs app could be a challenge.
Still, it's an incredibly successful and successful entry into the world of Star Wars in a way that is currently unavailable on any other platform.
Earlier this month, we found out that the film was the 20th anniversary of The Matrix the film that best represented virtual reality later this month in re-released to the cinemas to celebrate its ongoing power. As in Star Wars just about anyone who has a pulse has seen the movie or knows what it is.
And although this app is not officially associated with the movie and you did not suddenly gift Neo-like powers, it makes the next best thing. Here you can see the flowing code walls that Keanu Reeves discovers when he reaches the peak of his powers in the movie.
