NBA Star Andre Iguodala Spilled Some Secrets About Magic Leap
Golden State Warriors sixth man Andre Iguodala spilled a glimpse of the secretive Magic Leap, a Florida-based company reported being focused on augmented, mixed reality and computer vision technologies in addition to artificial intelligence. Magic Leap is a billion-dollar startup backed by Google and other major investors that are building a pair of glasses that could display advanced computer graphics in the real world.
"Magic Leap was amazing, I don't know if I'm allowed to say it. It's like going to play Augusta at the Masters. It's like you're not allowed to say you've been there," Andre Iguodala said. He also added, "They want to do some things with sports. I don't know how you even think of doing something like that. And then the actual device is so small, the one that's going to come to market, it's almost like you have a pair of sunglasses on."
According to a source, in an interview, Iguodala said that with Magic Leap, he could be able to stick out his hand and a little character appeared on it, equating the figure to Apple's digital assistant Siri. Also, he described how he can be able to control items' movements in his environment just by using his eyes. Iguodala also described a new application for Magic Leap's "mixed reality" technology: Using the headset's eye-tracking to control a smart home. Interestingly, the glasses could be transformed as virtual assistants, like Siri, into characters.
The 2015 NBA Finals MVP is not the only celebrity to try Magic Leap. The Florida-based company has had a lot of high-profile entertainers tried its technology which includes Beyoncé. Magic Leap has not announced when its product will hit the market. The price tag could possibly cost a towering price between $1000 and $2000.
