There were first patent imaging device cinematic reality Magic Leap




In October last year, a number of corporations, led by Google invested $ 542 million in start-up Magic Leap, specializes in the development of advanced technologies of augmented reality. Today, the network has the first images of the device “cinematic reality.” The document describes the “flat waveguide device with diffractive elements” and contains a series of images illustrating the possibility of using “smart” glasses at home.


Points, as mentioned in the application will recognize objects in the environment and apply them as static and changing the image, creating a virtual three-dimensional objects, and with a clear sense of depth images. Thus the user can at will change the visible space and use surrounding objects as part of the interface points. Platform, as noted, will allow to combine into a single environment real and virtual objects.


In Magic Leap argue that technology will provide a very realistic perception of cinematic 3D-environment, which can not give existing devices.




As an example, the creation of the interface to make the game process of cutting vegetables (picture at the beginning of the note). Another illustration of the patent shows how you can use key chains and jewelry as shortcuts to applications of social networks.



Overlay image is also proposed to use to create a virtual interior – for example, “hanging” on the computer prints a blank wall. In addition, the augmented reality proposed to use during medical operations, sports and shopping.



One of the illustrations show a view of a football match, during which the user can not just “take pictures” some moments, but also to interact with the image, as well as the “transfer” of the James Bond film “Quantum of Solace” from the wall of an apartment in the interface Netflix. Also present in the patent drawings with a few scenes in the store, where a woman compares with a virtual shopping list, while her daughter playing video games in the virtual sponsored brands.



In addition to Google, as polumilliardny round of funding was attended by the company Qualcomm, fund Andreessen Horowitz, studio Legendary Entertainment, as well as KKR, Vulcan Capital, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Obvious Ventures and others. Under the agreement, the head of development for Google Android and Chrome Sundar Pichai enters the board of directors of Magic Leap. In addition, Qualcomm CEO Paul Jacobs enters the board of a startup as an expert and an observer.
