Enterprise solutions, The New Magic Leap One And The 2021 Roadmap

Experiencing Spatial Computer on Magic Leap One Creators Edition at The Enterprise Wearable Technology Summit in Dallas, September, 2019. CHARLIE FINK

In the spirit of the season, Magic Leap dumped a news cornucopia on our desk this morning, brushing off doubters and negative news stories, as it focuses on the next two years. First, the headlines:

The Magic Leap Enterprise Suite, Now available on the Magic Leap website. The Suite includes everything a business needs to efficiently roll out spatial computing to employees, manage devices securely, and build and deploy enterprise or custom built applications. Priced at $2995, the new Magic Leap 1 Enterprise Suite includes:

The New Magic Leap 1 HMD with tethered Lightpack. This new, updated version of Magic Leap One drops “Creator Edition” from the name. At the same time, Magic Leap is releasing updates to its LuminOS (0.98) and LuminSDK (0.23) for current Magic Leap One Creator Edition owners.

Support. Two-year access to dedicated omnichannel support.

Two-year access to Device Manager. Enterprise-level support from Magic Leap. Device Manager lets authorized administrators control important aspects of working with Magic Leap 1, enabling them to configure and set up devices, view usage metrics, remotely distribute apps and updates, and remotely lock or wipe devices if needed.

Two-year access to a RapidReplace program. Get a new device quickly if you need one.

A two-year extended warranty. To guarantee Magic Leap 1 always works as it should.

“Since the launch of Magic Leap One Creator Edition in August, 2018, we’ve been working on solutions with enterprise partners, looking at different enterprise verticals, which has allowed us to understand the needs of the marketplace,” said Omar Khan, Chief Product Officer at Magic Leap. “This has enabled us to build a product around the enterprise’s real, everyday needs.” He broke the enterprise suite into four solution areas.

Magic Leap acquired cross-platform telepresence start up Mimesys last year. Mimesys

(1) Communication collaboration and co-presence. The company introduced its own application, Jump by Magic Leap, but is also working with partners like Spatial for the next generation in conferencing. Magic Leap partner BNP Paribas Real Estate reports it’s been able to lessen employee travel, and change the way its employees interact and collaborate with remote colleagues using spatial computing.

(2) 3D Spatial visualization. This application is for designers. Wether it’s collaboration or demonstration, sharing works-in-progress and doing rapid iterations is critical in design. Spatial computing enables architects to walking through a life sized CAD drawing of a building, and for doctors to stand inside of the CT scan of a patient’s anatomy.

(3) Learn and assist. Knowledge capture is a hot topic in enterprise XR right now, as tens of millions of baby-boomers with deep institutional knowledge are retiring in increasing numbers. Using spatial computing, and see-what-I-see technology, a worker can capture, narrate and even anchor content so that the next worker, standing in this same place wearing a Magic Leap device can follow their exact, step by step instructions. Jabil, a leading manufacturing solutions provider, leverages Magic Leap technology to train production-line operators and simplify complex assembly operations by integrating digital instructions into their physical environment.

(4) Location based experiences bring the digital world into live events and physical spaces. Magic Leap’s platform enables content and IP owners to bring digital entertainment to life in curated physical spaces. In the spring of 2019, Magic Leap, HBO and ATT brought a short spatial Game of Thrones experience to AT&T stores. Magic Leap wants to offer that same technology to other retailers. Sports venues, museums, trade shows and college campuses, could all be augmented with spatial computing experiences.

Rony Abovitz, founder and CEO of Magic Leap with one of the company’s touchstones: NASA. Abovitz wants to capture the pioneering spirit of the early space program. PATRICK FINLEY

Rony Abovitz, founder and CEO of Magic Leap, and the company he founded in 2014, which has raised and eye-popping 2.6billion (not a typo) dollars, was the subject of a long profile in Forbes this time last year. His previous company, Mako Robotics, created micro instruments for brain surgeons. Naturally, he started our conversation about Magic Leap’s leap into enterprise with his long term vision: all day, every day, everyone, everywhere. Your smartglasses will be with you like your mobile phone. They will be that close to your life.

Abovitz then proceeded to lay out the roadmap for the next eighteen months (or so) of Magic Leap’s development. Very significant in our view because this has not been so articulated to our knowledge. He fearlessly answered hard questions about Apple, Qualcomm, pass through, and security. The first thing he said was how surprised he was by how active and “leaning in” he has found the enterprise market in general.

The first news bomb Abovitz dropped is that the Magic Leap 2 will ship in 2021. Abovitz emphasized it is for enterprise and early prosumers. “This is a major new platform packed with sensors, and advanced optics,” Abovitz told me. He said the device is now passing through “phase gates” (production equivalent builds). Throughout 2020, Magic Leap plans to work closely with customers to perfect the Magic Leap 2.

When asked about the inherent security advantage the Windows 10 operating systems gives to the Microsoft HoloLens, Abovitz answered that Magic Leap’s open and flexible platform easily integrates into Windows 10, Azure, AWS or Google Compute. “Think about the complexity of military needs, and their security requirements. Our strength is open and modular and ease of integration, something our DoD clients really like about us.”

The other topic we touched on was the recent announcements from Apple and Qualcomm (which supplies most of the industry with Snapdragon XR processors) concerning their own roadmaps and where they are going in the next three years. The outward facing cameras of HMDs will get more powerful, and with faster latency-free 5G networks users, looking through their cameras, can experience a wild remix of reality. Abovitz says those approaches have their place, but he rejects the idea that people would live that way. “We’re sticking to our guns. Physical screens must go. Their days are numbered.”

Say goodbye to the Magic Leap One Creator’s Edition. Say hello to the Magic Leap 1. Magic Leap

  • Bitcoin price manages to hit the year to date high.
  • Bitcoin price hit the YTD high at $13821.
  • Would BTC price fall down after the US elections

The king of cryptocurrency has just managed to get past all the barriers as the Bitcoin price saw the year to date high of $13821, albeit briefly. The king is still enjoying a price near the yearly high just recorded.

At the time of writing the Bitcoin price stands at the $13753 mark. As reported earlier by Cryptopolitan.com the king was in for this rally since yesterday, when the price was holding the $13200 range.

Bitcoin price and US elections

It appears that the current United States election results are having a positive impact on the cryptocurrency realm as Joe Biden appears to be winning with a good majority.

Donald Trump has been one of the most controversial presidents in the history of the country and it appears that the likely news of his removal is instilling a fear of missing out (FoMo) in hodlers and newbies alike. However, the trading volume is not showing any major spike in the number of transactions therefore increasing the possibility of hodler, institutional, and whale buying.

On the other hand, the Whale Alert Twitter is reporting a mix of buying and selling which is mostly inclined towards the selling. The only other factor that is likely to be affecting the price hike is the increase in US dollar price owing to the pre-poll results showing a stable lead for Jeo Biden across the country.

Given the current situation, traders are likely to yield good margins on their Bitcoin trades since the cryptocurrency is likely to see new highs in the days to come. Cautious trading is advised as a security measure as always folks.

Huawei’s New Phone Mate40 Will Have a Wallet For China’s Digital Currency

Published

on

Multinational technological giant Huawei announced today that its newly-launched smartphone has a built-in wallet that will allow users to store, send, and receive China’s national digital currency.

Announcing the features of the Mate40 series in a Weibo post, the company said that the device is the first smartphone that supports the digital yuan via a hardware wallet.

The Chinese giant said in the post that users would enjoy hardware-level security while being able to control and protect their anonymity. Users can also conduct dual transactions using the new device, meaning they can also send and receive payments offline.

According to Huawei, the device guarantees a new safe and convenient payment experience for users.
To celebrate the launch of the smartphone, the company said it is giving out a free Mate40 Pro to the Weibo user who shares the post the most until November 6, 2020.

Huawei Partners China’s Central Bank

Huawei has been an active player in the blockchain industry, and the company continues to develop its blockchain capacities.

In November 2019, Huawei signed a strategic partnership with the digital currency research unit of the People’s Bank of China. After conducting a massive airdrop for the digital yuan last month, the country is now close to fully launching the new currency.

Samsung Leads Blockchain Smartphones

Meanwhile, Huawei is not the only company exploring new generation blockchain smartphones with built-in crypto wallets. The likes of LG and crypto exchange Houbi have also ventured into the blockchain smartphone market, with Samsung taking the lead.

Samsung released its first crypto-friendly phone in 2019, which provided support for BTC, ETH, and ERC-20 tokens. Since then, the South Korean multinational electronics mogul has been expanding its phones’ interaction with cryptocurrency and blockchain services.

In May, the company partnered with US-based crypto exchange Gemini to allow users to connect to the Gemini mobile app without having to log in again. In July, Samsung added Stellar and Decentraland to its Blockchain Keystore wallet.

UK Citizen Allegedly Used Bitcoin to Facilitate ISIS Members Prison Breaks

Avatar

Published

on

A 27-year old British citizen had appeared before a local court because of allegations that he had used Bitcoin to send money to help ISIS members escape Syrian prison camps. The man, Hisham Chaudhary, has reportedly been a member of the Islamic State for over four years.

Terrorist Prison Breaks Funded By Bitcoin

According to the Dailymail coverage, Chaudhary has been an accepted member of the Islamic State since early 2016 – an infamous terrorist organization banned under UK law since 2014.

Some of his responsibilities within the group included gathering and transferring funds abroad to assist captured ISIS militants to escape from prison camps in northern Syria, controlled by the Kurds. Chaudhary’s preferable currency was Bitcoin. He acquired and sent an undisclosed amount of BTC to facilitate the transactions and remain hidden from authorities.

The charges against the 27-year-old also include compiling and disseminating a terrorist publication called The Wholesome Fruit In The Virtues And Etiquettes Of Jihad last year.

In total, Chaudhary faces seven charges. Four of them are against the terrorist publication, one for his association with the organization, and two counts of entering a funding arrangement. However, he hadn’t plea to the charges during his video appearance at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.

Crypto Connections With Terrorist Group Rise

Bitcoin’s involvement with terrorist organizations has been spiking in the past few months. Reports surfaced in early August that the US Department of Justice (DOJ) had seized over 300 cryptocurrency accounts linked or operated by three notorious groups – al-Qaeda, Hamas, and again – ISIS.

US law enforcement agencies followed the funds to the accounts on the Bitcoin blockchain, as everything is recorded on the network. They saw millions of dollars worth of transfers from fundraising campaigns and anonymous donation ending in the wallets.

Acting US Attorney Michael Sherwin commented that “these individuals believe they operated anonymously in the digital space, but we have the skill and resolve to find, fix, and prosecute these actors under the full extent of the law.”

Additionally, French authorities arrested 29 people allegedly operating a sophisticated network of funding jihadists and al-Qaeda members with digital assets. The police found evidence that the accused purchased cryptocurrency coupons in France. They transferred the details by secure messaging to jihadists in Syria, who retrieved the funds through digital asset platforms.
