Why a Magic Leap Job Could be for You

why you want to work at magic leap

If you are inter­est­ed in vir­tu­al real­i­ty, then Mag­ic Leap may be the com­pa­ny for you. Non-shock­­ing, non-spoil­er alert of the day: vir­tu­al real­i­ty is the next big thing. Yawn, of course it is. We’re just sit­ting here wait­ing for the prod­uct that’s going to rock our world. It’s com­ing, we know it is, every­one knows it is… and it’s get­ting clos­er every day. So they say. While you may have been inun­dat­ed with vir­tu­al real­i­ty news and promis­es in recent years, you may not be as famil­iar with the term mixed real­i­ty. And if not, then you prob­a­bly aren’t famil­iar with the most famous, and infa­mous, name in mixed real­i­ty — Mag­ic Leap. Mag­ic Leap is in NOT Sil­i­con Val­ley If it’s a big deal in tech, then it’s got to be in Sil­i­con Val­ley, or Wash­ing­ton State, or based out of MIT, right? Sure­ly no one would guess that what some are call­ing the tech that will next change the world would come out of sub­ur­ban Flori­da, but that is indeed where Mag­ic Leap can be found. Except that it’s real­ly hard to find, in a knowl­edge kind of way. Let me start over a bit. Vir­tu­al real­i­ty…

Apple VR is Going Full speed with Flyby Media and 3 other Company Acquisitions.

Right off the back, Apple VR? Is Apple ready to push into the VR game by buy­ing Fly­by Media? Just so you know back in the Steve Jobs days, Apple had attempt­ed Vir­tu­al Real­i­ty head­sets and the like but pushed it aside because it was still not up to par. The tide has changed with increased com­pe­ti­tion in the space from the likes of Sam­sung with Gear VR, Facebook’s Ocu­lus Rift, Mag­ic Leap (jobs at Mag­ic Leap), as well as sig­nif­i­cant efforts from Google and Microsoft. If you don’t know Fly­by, they’re a com­pa­ny that was key in the devel­op­ment of two things we’ve spo­ken briefly about in the recent past, the first being machine vision, and the oth­er is Google’s Project Tan­go. The com­pa­ny has devel­oped tech that allows mobile phones to “see” the world around them. So Fly­by is tak­ing the IP, branch­ing its capa­bil­i­ties and spread­ing it across the con­sumer spec­trum. I’m not going to get into what Flyby’s app is capa­ble of doing because it’s a gim­mick, but I assure you the tech behind the app, which is a very “inter­net of things” is the sole rea­son for Apple’s inter­est. The hard thing is for machines…
