The Mighty Appeal of Micro Kingdoms
In the coming years, spatial computing will drive a planet-scale transformation of how we consume content and interact with our world. To bring the power of this new technology to life, PRELOADED teamed up with BBC Studios and Magic Leap and turned our attention to some of the planet’s smallest, but mightiest, animal kingdoms.
BBC Earth – Micro Kingdoms: Senses uses the Magic Leap spatial computing platform to merge users’ worlds with those of a Leaf Cutter Ant colony in the tropical rainforests of Central America and a Wandering Spider in the Atlantic Forest of Eastern Brazil. Narrated by Stephen Fry, the experience brings the natural world into your world, inviting creatures to walk over your table, or around your sofa, or even up your walls.
In two chapters users are able to observe, interact and learn how these animals have evolved extraordinary senses to help them survive and thrive. By visualising the incredible senses which animals use to understand their world, audiences are able to better understand, and appreciate, the world around them.
Created with a mainstream appeal in mind, the low threshold design of Micro Kingdoms allows audiences new to Magic Leap’s technology experience the emotional and educational power of storytelling in spatial computing.
