Today, Magic Leap Studios is proud to announce the launch of Undersea, a room-scale, Spatial Computing experience for the Magic Leap One.
Relax and observe underwater life in a dynamically generated, coral reef biome. Distinct vistas and creatures, presented in a photo-real art style, provide an opportunity to feel a sense of presence and connection between creatures and the environment.
Undersea started from a simple demo created by Magic Leap Studios where a single fish interacted with your hand and then lead you to a human-sized spherical aquarium containing a coral reef and many varieties of fish. Though that initial demo was fairly static, it resonated, and gave the team at Magic Leap a glimpse at a new way to showcase the potential of spatial computing.

Built using Unreal Engine 4 and Vulkan 3.1 mobile on Magic Leap One, Undersea is part of an ongoing series of curated experiences that allow internal developers to advance their understanding of creative, technical, and production challenges while delivering magical user experiences and sharing those insights with the broader creator community. Magic Leap Studios first consumer project, Create, was focused on providing an inviting entry point to the platform while showing off the core features of Spatial Computing in a fun and delightful way.
