On Thursday, Magic Leap decided to increase its efforts to promote its development community by launching the Independent Creator Program.
The program is designed to encourage developers and producers to create apps for Magic Leap One, with payoffs worth $ 20,000 to $ 500,000 in funding, along with technical and marketing support from the company.
"Have you ever dreamed of having access to a MoCap / VolCap studio? How about your idea in the stores? The ability to grant recipients access to our full range of partners and resources?" Reads the message on Magic Leap's website.
"Just because you're a pioneer does not mean you're going alone. With 1: 1 guidance from our developer re lations team, support from Magic Leap subject experts, and even QA- testing, if you get a grant, we will work with you by launch. "
The program emphasizes that the intangible property created during the work of the program is" not "exclusive to the Magic Leap platform, which should eliminate any problems as a Developers can lock into a walled garden if their projects attract more interest. This approach also applies to earnings achieved, as 100% of any revenue generated by a winning project will be retained by the creator.
In addition to funding, winning beneficiaries will also have Magic Leap One devices for use while creating their projects.
According to the guidelines for contributions, the eligibility criteria will be based on "originality, usage, team's technical capabilities and diversity, the scope and feasibility of the project, and the extent to which your concept encourages user engagement."  Deadline for the application is 15th Dec, and the winners will be notified by February 15, 2019.
