Magic Leap is excited to announce that we are joining forces with Microsoft and Qualcomm Technologies to lead the MRTK Steering Committee. This collective expertise will guide the evolution of MRTK, ensuring it continues to push the boundaries of XR innovation.
The Mixed Reality Toolkit (MRTK) is the leading cross platform AR/VR development framework. It offers developers a rich set of components and guidelines to accelerate app creation.
We have always been strong believers in an open ecosystem and strived to provide developer flexibility and collaboration to deploy and scale innovative solutions. We also believe enterprises should be in complete control of their AR experiences. Walled Garden experiences hold back the full potential of this technology, and we feel strongly that giving developers and companies a tool that they have control over will result in a much more robust and active ecosystem for the technology.
With Magic Leap joining Microsoft as equal stakeholders on the MRTK steering committee, we hope to enrich the current ecosystem and help our developer community create richer, more immersive experiences that span platforms. Additionally, our support for MRTK3 will allow for simple porting of MRTK3 apps from other OpenXR devices to our platform.
