Recommended Posts

Today at Unreal Engine Build: Detroit ‘19, the latest stop in Epic Games’ series of bespoke events serving Unreal Engine enterprise customers, Magic Leap revealed that the company will provide 500 Magic Leap One Creator Edition spatial computing devices for giveaway as part of Epic MegaGrants. Announced last month, Epic MegaGrants is Epic Games’ $100 million initiative to support media and entertainment creators, game developers, enterprise professionals, students, educators, and tools developers doing amazing things with Unreal Engine or enhancing open-source capabilities for the 3D graphics community. 

Developers building Unreal Engine spatial computing applications across entertainment, architecture, automotive, healthcare and many other industries can apply now via online submission to receive Magic Leap One devices, free of charge. There is no deadline, with grants awarded on a rolling basis and hardware available on a first-come first-served basis, based on project merit. The Magic Leap One Creator Edition is currently available on magicleap.com, in select AT&T stores, and at AT&T online for $2,295.

“The Epic MegaGrants program allows developers to pursue new goals and raise the bar for what they can accomplish, and we’re glad to support that mission by making Magic Leap One Creator Edition available to creators working in the spatial computing arena,” said Rio Caraeff, Chief Content Officer, Magic Leap. “Putting these devices directly into the hands of promising developers, along with the financial grant from Epic, will help accelerate the industry and lead to new innovation.”

“We’re thrilled that Magic Leap is offering their support to the Epic MegaGrants program with this generous giveaway of 500 Magic Leap One Creator Edition devices, which offer incredible opportunities to explore applications from digital humans to product design,” said Simon Jones, Director, Unreal Engine Enterprise, Epic Games. “The option to receive this hardware as part of an Epic MegaGrant means that more of the funds can be available to spend in other areas, so developers have more financial flexibility and freedom to create.”
