The story that Magic Leap has woven for Magic Leap One has focused on the freedom of spatial computation over outdated 2D screen modes.
Such a partnership with Shutterstock, a company that licenses Stock Photos and Videos to Creator, is a bit unexpected. But a closer look at the details makes the partnership clearer:
Magic Leap integrates Shutterstock's photo and video library into the gallery and screen apps in Lumin OS. In other words, these are the two apps that bring 2D content into the mixed reality environment. Users can also save their photo libraries in the Gallery app with pictures or create a video channel with Shutterstock pictures in the on-screen app.
"It's really exciting to work with a company as innovative and forward-looking as Magic Leap "said Jon Oringer, founder and CEO of Shutterstock, in a statement. "Knowing that assets from Shutterstock will help provide some of the digital building blocks for developers to create new environments and completely new worlds is something that Shutterstock has created for us, opening the work of our contributors to a whole new world Fashion "It's exciting. As a technology company, Shutterstock is primarily capable of supporting the imagination of these creative pioneers. I can not wait to see what they are building. "
In a blog post, Shutterstock gives some additional suggestions Magic Leap One users can get the assets working – for example, users can transform their tabletops with dynamic images into visual images otherwise project blank walls or create immersive experiences with photos and videos from photographers, designers and producers from around the world.
