Mimesys joins Magic Leap to integrate co-presence technologies

May 16, 2019 – Magic Leap has today announced that Mimesys, a developer of a spatial co-presence technology platform, has joined Magic Leap. Mimesys’ platform enables volumetric telepresence for real-time collaboration and communication using Magic Leap’s spatial computing.

Magic Leap stated that with the addition of Mimesys, Magic Leap now has “the most robust, true spatial, volumetric co-presence and communication solution on the market today.” According to the company, as the modern workforce continues to become more dispersed, leading enterprises are looking to integrate bleeding edge communication, collaboration and co-presence technologies into their daily business practices.

“Spatial Computing is going to change the way we think and work, leading to more collaborative, physically active, and magical experiences”, explained Remi Rousseau, CEO of Mimesys. “Concepts of communication imagined in science-fiction in the past 30 years are becoming now technically possible. We had the chance to work with Magic Leap Spatial Technology early on, were impressed by their technology and excited by the possibilities of co-presence on the platform. We are thrilled to be joining the Magic Leap family and to integrate the co-presence technologies into their spatial computing platform.”

Omar Khan, Chief Product Officer at Magic Leap commented: “As we expand the spatial computing ecosystem integrating a best in class communication and collaboration solution helps us to further fulfill the promise of the next computing platform.” He added, “The spatial co-presence platform the Mimesys team has created is remarkable and we are thrilled to have them as part of our team. We look forward to further expansion of co-presence and collaboration tools on the Magic Leap platform.”

Mimesys has already developed co-presence solutions in the past for companies such as BNP Paribas and Orange on the Magic Leap One.
