On Thursday, Magic Leap decided to step up its efforts to promote the developer community with the launch of the Independent Creator program.
The program is designed to encourage developers and producers to create apps for the Magic Leap One with $ 20,000 to $ 500,000 in grants and technical and marketing support.
"Have you always dreamed of having access to a MoCap / VolCap studio? How about presenting your idea in the retail stores? The possibility that recipients of grants will be able to benefit from our full range of partners and services Resources, "says the announcement on the Magic Leap website.
"Just because you're a pioneer does not mean that you should do it alone, with 1: 1 instructions from our developer Re. If you get a scholarship, we'll work with you."
The program emphasizes that the intellectual property created while working in the program is "Not Exclusive to the Magic Leap Platform", which should dispel any concerns that a developer might be trapped in a walled garden This approach also applies to the profits made, as 100% of all revenue generated by a winning project is withheld by the creator.
In addition to funding, recipients of grants also receive Magic Leap One devices for use in the preparation of their projects
According to the grant guidelines, the criteria for the selection of the fellows are based on "Originality, Anwe the extent to which your concept promotes the involvement of users "(19659002)] The application deadline is 15 December. The winners will be announced by 15 February 2019.
