Unlike VR, when you talk about augmented reality, it can be incredibly difficult to describe what an experience is – especially because the experiences are even more contextual than relatively static virtual worlds that do not contain real settings. 19659002] AR is all about how "you" see things that interact with your real environment. This is the case with what I call the most important demonstration of Magic Leap technology to date in the form of an AI wizard called Mica.
The experience was presented on stage during Wednesday's keynote event. Conference in Los Angeles by John Monos of Magic Leap, Vice President Human-Centered AR and dDNA, and Andrew Rabinovich, the head of the AI department.
Together, the team described a world in which a Magic Leap user will be able to interact with intelligent wizards in the form of fully-realized augmented-reality people who recognize their location in a room, as well as items in that room can. After you've mapped the area and your location in it, the AI Assistant will interact with you to help you do many things.
For example, as described in the presentation, the AI Assistant can scan the eyes of the Magic Leap One to detect its mood and then propose a suitable song to play through the house's music system. Likewise, the AI Assistant uses the preferences of the Magic Leap One user to adjust things like the amount of light in a room at a particular time of day.
