magic leap appoints author neal stephenson as ‘chief futurist’
Dania Beach, Florida, December 16, 2014 - Magic Leap, Inc. (“Magic Leap”) announced today that it has appointed Neal Stephenson as the company’s Chief Futurist.
As the trailblazer behind the concept of the “Metaverse” from his 1992 sci-fi classic Snow Crash, Stephenson imagined a virtual universe where users create avatars to communicate and interact.
“Neal is a true visionary and the very first to conceptualize a social, virtual world in a coherent way,” said Rony Abovitz, Founder, President and CEO of Magic Leap. “I am looking forward to his insights as Chief Futurist for the company, helping the team and I bring Magic Leap’s technology to the world.”
Known for his speculative fiction works, which have been variously categorized as science fiction, historical fiction, maximalism, cyberpunk, and postcyberpunk, Stephenson’s work explores areas such as mathematics, cryptography, philosophy, currency, and the history of science. He also writes non-fiction articles about technology in publications such as the New York Times, TIME, and Forbes.
