Over the past few years, we’ve been working with enterprise customers and partners to maximize the vast opportunities afforded by spatial computing for corporations. Launching today are new components of the Magic Leap ecosystem that will further the enablement of enterprise solutions. Discover how global enterprises such as Boston Consulting Group, BNP Paribas, Deloitte, Hyperloop TT, JetBlue Vacations, McLaren and Skender are bringing spatial computing solutions to their companies and customers, radically improving the way they share ideas, communicate and upskill employees.
Today, we’re launching two new components of the Magic Leap ecosystem: our Enterprise Suite and Device Manager - along with an update to our first-generation device, Magic Leap 1.
Available here, Magic Leap Enterprise Suite includes everything your business needs to efficiently roll out devices to employees, enable employees to log in using their enterprise credentials, manage the device and data, and deploy enterprise or custom built applications. Priced at $2995, Magic Leap 1 Enterprise Suite includes:
- Magic Leap 1, an updated version of Magic Leap One Creator Edition, our wearable spatial computer that brings the physical and digital worlds together as one.
- Two-year access to Device Manager with enterprise-level support from Magic Leap. Device Manager lets authorized administrators control important aspects of working with Magic Leap 1, enabling them to remotely configure devices, deploy private apps, and manage login credentials all in one place.
- Two-year access to a RapidReplace program, so you can get a new device quickly if you need one.
- Two-year access to enterprise level support.
- A two-year extended warranty to guarantee Magic Leap 1 always works as it should.
While spatial computing has the ability to impact every aspect of business, at Magic Leap, we’re focusing our first generation enterprise solutions across four core areas: Communication, Collaboration and Co-Presence; 3D Visualization; Learn and Assist; and Location-based Experiences. Our partners, including Arvizio, Eon Reality, Immersion Analytics, Immersiv, Nomtek, Minsar, Obsess, PTC, RoOomy, Spatial, Spatiate, Taqtile, Verses and VIM, have created applications in these core areas. Many are available in Magic Leap World today with more rolling out over the next several months.
Communication, Collaboration and Co-Presence
The modern workforce is changing - organizations are becoming flatter and workforces more disparate, but our needs for collaborative work and creative group ideation are constantly expanding. Until now, there hasn't been a replacement for face-to-face interaction.
In the coming months, Magic Leap will begin rolling out Jump by Magic Leap, a Communication, Collaboration and Co-presence platform beta program, that will allow people who are either physically present or digitally co-present to collaborate. With Jump by Magic Leap, companies can merge their digital content and experiences with multi-person, multi-site volumetric co-presence in the physical world, allowing for new forms of collaboration that were never before possible.
BNP Paribas, a leading global bank and real estate business is implementing Magic Leap technologies across its European and Asia locations. Using a communication and collaboration platform from Magic Leap partner, Spatial, on Magic Leap 1, BNP has enabled employees from across its global network to be physically and digitally co-present in the same space, allowing them to interact as if they were all in the same room, despite being thousands of miles apart. They can walk-through a 3D model of a building or neighborhood map, then take part in a brainstorming session around its future development.
Since implementing these solutions in early 2019, BNP Paribas Real Estate has been able to lessen costly employee travel, reduce its carbon footprint and change the way its employees, and in the near future, its customers, interact and collaborate with each other.
3D Visualization enables quick iteration and spatial insight-driven decision making. It can create visual models of anything from a jet engine to complex datasets that are today confined to spreadsheets, servers and screens, and lets teams visualize them in the physical environment at scale. Whether it’s a spreadsheet or a medical MRI, the ability to visualize information in a 3D environment within your physical space opens up brand new opportunities to glean insights from data, and create actionable plans.
Earlier this year, Dow Jones Innovation Lab launched an application to visualize and animate live WSJ market data for every US stock above a $1B market capitalization on a radial scatter plot.
Another company currently using Magic Leap 1 for 3D visualization is Hyperloop Transportation Technologies. Hyperloop TT is using spatial computing to visualize its technology and passenger systems for the development of its first station in the U.S.
Skender, one of the largest general contractors in the United States, is deploying our technology to design, manufacture and build modular multifamily buildings in Chicago. Using Magic Leap 1, they’re working together with VIM, our Independent Creator Program grant recipient, to augment the physical space and help people visualize the finished product.
Learn and Assist
Learn and Assist makes it easier to transform an aging workforce into remote experts who can train the next generation of workers. Training within a spatial computing environment yields numerous benefits, including increased safety and the opportunity to upskill employees simply and cost-effectively. This area has been one of the first to blossom due to the clear ROI with first-generation technology. With Magic Leap 1, upskilling a global team is more interactive, effective and affordable.
Jabil, a leading manufacturing solutions provider, leverages Magic Leap technology to train production-line operators and simplify complex assembly operations. With digital instructions integrated into their physical environment, operators can better understand the requirements of their roles and complete their work with greater speed and accuracy.
Location-based Experiences bring the digital world to live events and physical environments. Our platform enables content- and IP-owners to bring digital entertainment to life in curated physical spaces. Examples include pop-up experiences or permanent installations at sports venues, museums, trade shows and college campuses. Spatial computing can deliver unique experiences, digital product sampling and product purchase with a limitless SKU and inventory restrictions.
In 2020 JetBlue Vacations will pilot an immersive experience for customers to visit and explore one of their premier international hotel properties using Magic Leap 1. The experience will be piloted for consumers in 2020.
“We believe spatial computing has limitless potential to positively impact our lives. We are at the beginning of that journey, as we start to change the way we work, and begin to think beyond the screens that have limited our creativity and our ability to reach our fullest potential,” explained Rony Abovitz, founder and CEO of Magic Leap. “The amazing companies who have started on this journey with us, all leaders in their industries, inspire and drive us, to continue to lead the innovation of the next era of computing - the spatial transformation.”
We are also partnering with companies such as Deloitte, and the Boston Consulting Group to help their enterprise clients design and implement our spatial computing platform in their organizations.
The future of enterprise
We’re partnering with sector-leading brands to create real-world solutions with spatial computing across manufacturing, AEC, manufacturing, automotive, entertainment, healthcare, retail and education, and beyond.
As we expand our solutions within enterprise, we are also expanding our global footprint. Our partner NTT Docomo Inc., the leading telecommunications operator in Japan, will begin exclusively offering Magic Leap 1 in Japan starting in Spring 2020.
“Today’s announcement heralds the arrival of a new chapter for spatial computing with an advanced technology platform for enterprises across all industry sectors,” said Omar Khan, Chief Product Officer at Magic Leap. “Our innovative partners are leading the charge by developing groundbreaking applications that will transform their businesses and customer experiences. Together, we are rewriting the playbook with smart applications that will yield greater efficiencies, deeper engagement and significant new business opportunities for all stakeholders."
As we move towards 2020, we’re continuing to explore new solutions that unlock the potential of spatial computing for work. These are a handful of ways we’re giving businesses the tools they need to revolutionize the work they do. Find out how spatial computing can transform the way you do business.
