Featured Studio – Magic Leap Studios

By now, you probably know at least some of the story behind Magic Leap, one of the most intriguing (and initially mysterious) companies to arise along with the consumer AR/VR boom. After years of hard work from their Plantation, FL headquarters (along with other locations), they finally released their first product earlier this year – the Magic Leap 1.

Now that the hardware is out, big name developers like Weta Workshop and Insomniac have been releasing experiences for the new system. Magic Leap has also been developing their own experiences from their internal Magic Leap Studios to help show other developers what their technology is capable of. To see some of their recent work, check out this behind the scenes video that shows off details of how they created their release, Undersea.
