It turns out that Grordborts Invaders is not the only Magic Leap demo that will become a reality for the Magic Leap One.
ILMxLAB, the Augmented and Virtual Reality arm of Lucasfilm, announced Monday Star Wars: Project Porg for Magic Leap One. The team did not announce when the app will be available for download on the ML1, but the experimental demo will be premiered at the L.E.A.P. Conference, with Vicki Dobbs Beck, senior executive of ILMxLAB, reveals the experiences during the keynote speech on October 10.
According to ILMxLAB Announcement, the project Porg challenges players to educate their furry friends by feeding them and teaching them to look at real objects move. C3PO also leads the players in the care of their Porges.
On Friday, Magic Leap confirmed that Grordborts Invaders the long-awaited first-person shooter of Weta Workshop, would appear on the L.E.A.P. Conference. The first insights into the game of Dr. Grordbort was the original demo video from Magic Leap.
Like Weta, ILMxLAB was an early content partner for Magic Leap. In 2016, the team produced a demo video featuring the virtual C3PO and its droid life partner R2D2. At the moment, however, C3PO seems to be the only common thread between the demo and Project Porg The Project Porg game is not the first time that the Lovable (or Repulsive) Porges have been published in Augmented Reality. And it is not the last time that there has been a murder of Porg experiences by mobile AR apps.
The Porgs were first found in augmented reality last year by the Find the Force scavenger hunt, which saw the introduction of Star Wars: The Last Jedi The Porgs made their debut on canvas. Snapchat hosted the Pug Penguin Hybrid in a World Lens in an advertisement for Star Wars: The Last Jedi . Google has also included Porgs in the Star Wars sticker pack for its AR sticker app, available exclusively on Google Pixel phones. The creatures also found early Star Wars: Jedi Challenges an update earlier this year.
Honestly, based on the frequency with which Porgs appear in AR, it should come as no surprise that they are the centerpiece of the first Star Wars AR app for Magic Leap.
In addition to augmented reality experiences, ILMxLAB visual effects guru Michael Koperwas will be presenting his Augmented Reality Storytelling experience from the Keynote Stage on October 10
