New Magic Leap Demo Shows Shopping With Augmented Reality

The technology lets you measure a room to see how objects will fit

A new demo spotted by Mashable offers a glimpse of US-based startup Magic Leap's augmented reality technology at work. In the video, which CMO Brian Wallace released at a conference in China, a user appears to measure a space and shop for baby-friendly lamps to fill it. You can see one of the lamps appear in 3D in the user's room, and even accommodate shifts in perspective as she approaches.

There's no word on a device that would accommodate this platform, although the company did have an aesthetic patent for a virtual reality headset approved last month. The new demo builds on earlier videos that Magic Leap released to show how its technology can map computer-generated objects onto the real world.
