Google Set to Lead Huge Investment in Magic Leap and Its "Cinematic Reality"

Google Set to Lead Huge Investment in Magic Leap and Its "Cinematic Reality" | pixels and pictures | Scoop.it

Sources say Google is leading what could be a $500 million funding round for the Florida-based company; Andreessen Horowitz may be one of the other investors in the consortium. Magic Leap already announced $50 million in funding earlier this year.

Google, Andreessen Horowitz and Magic Leap reps declined to comment.

Aside from a few cryptic interviews and press releases, Magic Leap has kept a low profile until recently, but it has drawn increasing interest from Hollywood and Silicon Valley. CEO Rony Abovitz, who previously co-founded a surgical robotics company that sold for $1.65 billion, has said the company is working on “what we believe will be the most natural and human-friendly wearable computing interface in the world,” but has kept it mostly behind wraps.

Philippe J DEWOST's insight:

Still nothing to see for now from "cinematic reality" except dollars pouring in. Maybe a Star Wars hologram might come out.

Minority Report UI Innovation analysis

After more than a year, and 25.000 +views, YouTube has decided to block the Minority Report UI innovation analysis video I use in my presentations and conferences, although there are 9.000 + others that deal with Minority Report, some of them copying more than 10 minutes of the original movie.

 

While I resolve this you may find it on Vimeo as well as on http://blog.dewost.com/user-interface-innovation-often-originates-fr
