Technical optimism can be difficult to come by these days. But the idea that technology will enable us to make the world a better place is too big at Magic Leap – everything depends on 5G.
Leid Hud, the most well-known company for its reality headphones further, unveils some great ideas about what he sees as a technology future. First, Rony Abovitz, the CEO of the company, shared his vision for the future, known as "Magicverse" in October 2018.
Abovitz elaborated on that idea in a company blog post and a Saturday interview, where he described Magicverse as "and Emergency Systems Systems Bypassing the digital and large-scale digital, continuously within and community of people. "
Uhh, what does the heck mean? In essence, Abovitz and his team see the Magicverse bedding between them with digital objects and services that people can use through related devices of all kinds – including, of course, magic Sleeve headphones.
"Data, information and experiences within these environments have been unlocked from screens and administrators to continue on a scale in relevant contextual physical environments," the blog post reads.
A diagram that Leid Hud shared in his blog post helps explain. It essentially shows how AR will enable us to insert digital services into a physical world.
However, there is a crucial element of Magicverse that is not a reality yet: 5G.
According to Abovitz, because the Magicverse relies on constant connectivity, 5G – the concept of the buzzword technology of the moment – which will empower the Magicverse. This is the new wireless network that ISPs, chip makers and gadget companies racing to make a reality.
"One of the conditions to enable Magicverse is the hundreds of millions of dollars of a new infrastructure to create rapid networking and acne network zones in modern cities across many countries," he said. Magic Flower post. "5G (and what's going on) are important elements of what's like a new, spatial network."
5G promises a very high speed connectivity. But it will also have much more capacity – how many devices a network can support at any given time. Higher speed, as well as more ability, will probably mean that a full-fledged Internet Of Things (IoT) refusal to operate. Or, in the case of the Magicverse, multiple layers of digital space have access to connected devices.
Abovitz's vision for the Magicverse is still extremely abstract; what, on the way, is a digital layer of "energy and water"?
Cool. How exactly does the Energy and Water layer work in Magicverse? I can understand digital, but I do not just get it, and the health and well-being layer? Are these different categories of usage cases? Say more.

However, the Magicverse is significant because it really provides a rare blueprint for what the 5G future could really look.
The "5G future" is a concept that ISPs have been promising, with little agreement on what that really means. So far, it has been explained as a very fast internet, together with diagrams of things like autonomous cars communicating with each other. The promise of 5G to date is a lot of hot air and marketing.
But Abovitz's Magicverse could show how 5G will really help to change the world, even if that's all walking around wearing AR headphones to interact with virtual objects and points of interest. Who would believe our future submission would be Go to Pokémon?
"Millions of devices will become windows to the spatial digital world," the blog post reads.
The Magicverse concept is in its early days and contains enough question marks. But there's one way to look at what a hyper-linked world, made possible by 5G, could really look.
And given all the confusing information about 5G currently available, we will take it.
