Stepping into the Magicverse

Architecture students used Magic Leap’s spatial computing technology to envision what the future holds on campus and in their careers.

Hunched over a project in her workspace, the student’s desk suddenly turns bright red, reminding her it’s time to move.

Her mixed reality isn’t the stuff of dreams, but rather a window into the future imagined by architecture students in the first University of Miami course designed to explore the potential of Magic Leap’s new spatial computing platform for bridging the physical and virtual worlds—and transforming the University into what the South Florida-based company calls the Magicverse.
