Magic Leap

About the Class

The Magic Leap One offers unprecedented opportunities in spatial computing, utilizing World Reconstruction, a 6 DoF controller, hand and eye tracking, spatial audio and other bleeding-edge affordances.

In this intensive, hands-on series of workshops, Magic Leap evangelist Tricia Katz will enable participants to get started with the Magic Leap One and their engine or platform of choice.

Starting from scratch, you’ll be walked through setting up your dev environment, learn the many available development tools and how to best use them, and dive into the Lumin SDK to create anything you desire using the device’s powerful feature set. Magic Leap Mentors will be available to assist you every step on the way.

Seating is limited – sign up soon to reserve your spot!
