1.公司简介

Magic Leap成立于2011年,由45岁的创始人兼CEO Rony Abovitz创立,是一家位于美国佛罗里达的增强现实公司。
自从2011年创立以来,Magic Leap就一直保持着高度的机密运营状态。目前已经获得了来自包括Google、阿里巴巴、A16Z、KPCB、摩根大通等在内的投资。


 

2.主要产品

Magic Leap还没有推出过正式的产品。

Magic Leap技术的核心是一个头戴显示器,但是最后的成品应该可以做到一副眼镜里面。当你戴上这款设备,它并不会妨碍你观察世界,它的硬件会把一套光学系统内置到一副半透明眼镜里,再通过它把影像直接投射到你的视网膜上(别担心,这个产品不会灼伤你的眼球;它只是替代了我们观察世界的自然方式,迫使我们盯住一块屏幕)。同时这个硬件还会不断收集信息,扫描房间的障碍物,倾听声音,跟踪眼球运动并且看住你的手(跟踪动作)。

Magic Leap总裁Rony Abovitz日前在参加Brainstorm Tech大会时表示,公司目前正在佛罗里达准备生产线。与此同时,他还透露了一点点自家技术的额外细节。他说:“我们的系统基本上会复制人眼和大脑的工作方式,也就是我们的神经视觉系统的工作方式,它会把你的大脑变成一块显示屏。因此,它的基本理念不是提供一块显示屏,而是利用自然给我们的显示屏,然后与之进行直接交流。”


 

3.发展历程

Magic Leap成立于2011年。

Magic Leap曾在2015年9月发布过一段“直接利用Magic Leap技术”实现的视频,没有添加任何特效。

2014年10月,Magic Leap获得由谷歌领投的5.42亿美元B轮融资,高通资本、KKR、Vulcan Capital、KPCB、Andreessen Horowitz和Obvious Ventures等大牌投资机构跟投。与此同时,谷歌新任CEO桑达尔·皮猜(Sundar Pinchai)也出任了该公司董事。 

2015年12月,Magic Leap将完成8.27亿美元的C轮融资。此轮融资完成后,Magic Leap的累计融资额将达到14亿美元,完全摊薄融资后估值达到37亿美元。

2015年3月,Magic Leap还发布过一段增强现实第一人称射击游戏视频,但该公司当时并没有附带类似的真实性声明。
2016年2月,AR创业公司Magic Leap在新一轮融资中获7.935亿美元的投资,阿里、谷歌都参与本轮融资。完成C轮融资后,Magic Leap的估值至少已达到45亿美元。 

2016年4月19日,Magic Leap在YouTube上发布了一段2分7秒、名为“全新的清晨”的视频。该公司表示,这段视频拍摄于4月8日,“并未采用特效或合成技术”
