Magic Leap, the mysterious tech company that spent years developing augmented reality goggles in complete secrecy, has finally shed light on one of the intended uses for its headset. At an event yesterday, CEO Rony Abovitz and NBA commissioner Adam Silver revealed that the two companies are teaming up to bring NBA content to Magic Leap, via virtual screens in the headset.
The announcement was interesting because neither party sees this as just another way for you to watch content. Instead, Magic Leap and the NBA are rethinking how live sports are filmed in an area, and they’re presenting a blueprint for the way we watch sports to change completely.
