"I put on Magic Leap on his head and saw virtual objects, imposed on things from the real world. It was quite impressive and I thought — this is the best that can offer Magic Leap. But then I went into the next room and saw korotkometrazhnuyu a girl named Mika. She sat at the table, and I sat in the chair opposite. Mika smiled and looked at me. I was struck by how realistic her image. I lifted her head and looked her in the eye. She did the same. I turned my head back, she too turned her head back. She mimicked some of my movements."

In recognition of the leaders of Magic Leap, Mica — only a part of a global project to create not only AI assistant, but also the virtual avatars for communication and for a variety of functions. Mica as future avatars, developed on Unreal Engine 4 from Epic Games. The chat rooms for avatars users Magic Leap plans to implement this year.
