While Magic Leap World gets its share in fun apps to play with Porgs, watch TV and explore the depths of the ocean, developers are also making a strong business case for the Magic Leap One.
Cue BadVR, a Los Startup in Angeles, that was recently marked as one of the NR30 Up & Coming AR founders you should know before 2019. The company's new app, SeeSignal, uses the spatial calculation capabilities of the Magic Leap One to enable network technicians to view signal strength data for mobile, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth in the physical environment.
The app represents network data as floating bars with color codes, with green, yellow and red bars as standard for the spectrum from strong to weak signal strength (with an adjustment function that allows color blind users to adjust their visible color spectrum). The Magic Leap One's hand tracking feature allows users to use SeeSignal to grab and grab these bars to reveal real-time data. In addition, the handheld controller of the device serves as a signal detector, directing users toward stronger signal regions and also acts as an aid to switch between signal types.
The idea for the app, now available for download through Magic Leap World, was created during a recent AT&T hackathon.
"Since the hackathon was sponsored by AT&T, I thought it would be fun to do something about visualizing mobile data," Borders said. "I immediately thought of viewing data on the mobile network. As a team, we decided to make a rough version of an MVP for this. That's how SeeSignal was born."
Borders gave a look behind the scenes of development in another blog post. One of the interesting details from her account was that Spatiate, the multi-user painting app from Across Realities, actually helped the team collaborate in the development of SeeSignal.
"It enabled our team to brainstorm and design our product using the hardware we wanted to deploy & # 39 ;, says Borders." This allowed us to be aware of every detail and take it into account make design and product decisions. "
SeeSignal is the last graduate of the Independent Creator program to publish a final product of its grant proposal.
Previously, other beneficiaries had the developer Kubold and the Dinosaur Kit app, as well as Ontop Studios, who brought his PuzzlAR game to the Magic Leap 1. Although these apps came from the fun side of augmented reality, SeeSignal is a tool for the business side of the industry.
Magic Leap is from plan to continue to reveal the benefits of financing the program in the coming weeks, and ultimately the program, which has been criticized for taking some liberties with the term "independent jk "in his title, perhaps the most successful strategy in promoting new, useful and polished apps for the Magic Leap World app store.
