With the debut of Magic Leap’s developer portal for Japan, corporate Japanese website at www.magicleap.com/ja-jp, and the expansion of the Magic Leap 1 displays and screens to 100+ DOCOMO shops by the end of the month, Japanese developers, enterprises and early adopters can now experience the next era of computing.

Spatial computing frees digital content from screens, seamlessly blending the digital world with the physical world. It allows digital content to interact with its physical surroundings and people to interact with content seamlessly, without the limits of a screen. DOCOMO’s 5G infrastructure removes the restrictions of speed, bandwidth and latency. This infrastructure and computing platform combined, enable companies, developers and individuals around the world to transform the way they communicate, collaborate, and learn new skills. DOCOMO’s corporate and individual customers can develop enterprise solutions and XR content services for the lightweight, wearable Magic Leap 1 to improve the work experience, generate efficiencies, and offer new ways to train and learn, collaborate and visualize content.
Removing Limits with Spatial Computing + 5G
The expansion of 5G networks and the 5G edge enables these spatial realities to expand in a scalable fashion. Together with our partner, DOCOMO, we will enable multi-user, low-latency, high-bandwidth spatial computing use cases in cities with 5G network access throughout Japan and the rest of the 5G enabled world. Our partnership with DOCOMO will enable us to jointly bring Magic Leap’s products and services to the Japanese market at an unparalleled level of performance.
