A developer took the formal name of Magic Leap One: Creator Edition quite literally with an app that allows users to create a custom universe in their own living room.
The app, called Universe Creator by developer Les Bird, allows users to select from a library of stars, planets and other celestial bodies with their Magic Leap One controller and place them in their physical space.
Users can use any body scale with the controller's touchpad and the mass of the object increases accordingly. As a result, smaller objects can be set to orbit larger ones (Bird notes that in future versions he would like to improve the realism of the orbit). By default, stars have an infinite mass and therefore can not orbit other objects because it is a science.
When a universe is established, users can also populate the space with spaceships. In accordance with one of three factions (red, blue and green) the fleets will make a space fight. Creators can influence the outcome of this infinite warfare by summoning reinforcements.
"Watch the battleships as they fly around the room, looking for another ship in the same faction with which to band together I'll fly in formation and work together, these pilots are smart," says Bird on his website. "The factions are all equal, so no particular color has any advantages, but I've seen a fighter pull out a whole bunch of six ships on their own. Could that pilot be Luke?"
Magic Leap One owner Having a god complex can grab MPK file from Birds website. Remember, while the room is infinite, the field of view of Magic Leap One is inaccessible.
If that sounds familiar to you, then Magic Leap is similar to the one shown in 2015 in a demo video. It shows you that dreams can come true when it comes to Augmented Reality .
In the run-up to the release of their debut and in the post-launch phase, Magic Leap has gone to great lengths to develop a content ecosystem for the device, including partnerships with big names such as Andy Serkis and his Imaginarium Studios and the Square Slice Studios by comic book author Grant Morrison.
Nonetheless, the Magic Leap One is a developer kit in every way (hence the nickname of the Creator Edition), and the library of experiences is pretty sparse as developers get used to the platform. The ultimate goal of Magic Leap is the consumer audience, and this phase of the company's philosophy is critical to gaining significant experience from independent developers such as Bird and the larger studios following the launch of the Consumer Edition.
