Mimesys, a Belgian developer of a leading spatial co-presence platform, has joined Magic Leap. The Belgian company is working on a volumetric display system which projects full holographic images in augmented reality. With integration into Magi Leap – if the leading augmented reality platform will even gain widespread adoption – could reproduce “Star Wars-like” projections such as the message from Princess Leia to Obi-Wan Kenobi, that effectively kickstarted the saga more than four decades ago.

Back to today’s Earth, as the modern workforce continues to become more dispersed, leading enterprises are integrating bleeding edge communication, collaboration and co-presence technologies into their daily business practices.

“Spatial Computing is going to change the way we think and work, leading to more collaborative, physically active, and magical experiences,” explains Remi Rousseau, CEO of Mimesys. “Concepts of communication imagined in science-fiction in the past 30 years are becoming now technically possible. We had the chance to work with Magic Leap Spatial Technology early on, were impressed by their technology and excited by the possibilities of co-presence on the platform. We are thrilled to be joining the Magic Leap family and to integrate the co-presence technologies into their spatial computing platform.”

Mimesys’ platform enables volumetric telepresence for real-time collaboration and communication using Magic Leap’s spatial computing. Now, Magic Leap has the most robust, true spatial, volumetric co-presence and communication solution on the market today.

“As we expand the spatial computing ecosystem integrating a best in class communication and collaboration solution helps us to further fulfill the promise of the next computing platform,” explained Omar Khan, Chief Product Officer, Magic Leap. “The spatial co-presence platform the Mimesys team has created is remarkable and we are thrilled to have them as part of our team. We look forward to further expansion of co-presence and collaboration tools on the Magic Leap platform.”
