Rony Abovitz, (CEO of Magic Leap), John Gaeta (SVP of Creative Strategy) and Neal Stephenson (Chief Futurist) announced some new projects as their first steps in this world.

They explained and introduced us the magicverse concept, which is based on the idea of the different layers that compose our reality.
