After Magic Leap showed a prototype of the Grordbattle multiplayer first-person shooter at the Game Developer Conference, Magic Leap in version 0.95.0 of the Lumin OS update released this week has a new shared world feature added.
Shared World The still-experimental Beta feature gives users the ability to choose a shared spatial map created by Magic Leap One devices in a common area and to synchronize their positions, which is the AR Experience easier for multiple users.
In addition to Shared World, Lumin received two more sharing features in beta. In Kiosk mode, device owners can lock the device to an app for guest use, a feature that will prove useful for the upcoming Game of Thrones experience and demos at the AT & T stores.
And then there's the device stream, which lets users see live spatial computing computing for mobile devices through the Magic Leap mobile app.
While Shared World focuses on multiplayer experiences between Magic Leap One users, Kiosk Mode and Device Stream enable those who are not owners of Magic Leap to have the device demonstrated
in other areas of the Lumin update Magic Leap also improves hand tracking, head posture and eye tracking. The improvements in hand tracking are particularly intriguing given the advances in gesture recognition demonstrated with the introduction of HoloLens 2 HoloLens 2.
Now the Magic Leap One can handle eight key positions from different orientations, eg the user. In addition, hand-tracking gestures without key positions can be detected.
Lumin 0.95.0 also includes a number of other quality of life enhancements and enhancements described in the release notes, but the release features and tracking enhancements are the true standouts.
It is becoming increasingly clear that Magic Leap is working to establish its own aromas of the "AR cloud," also known as Magicverse, while making it easier for unconverted people to experience Magic Leap and resist Microsoft's own Improvements in AR hardware. It will be interesting to see what other software-related enhancements are pumping the company to prepare its own mainstream next-generation consumer device.
