Magic Leap acquires mesh computing company


    Magic Leap has acquired Computes Inc. for an undisclosed amount.

    On Friday, the Plantation-based company said it bought the mesh computing company launched by Chris Matthieu and Jade Meskill. With the company on board, Magic Leap could expand its augmented reality technology to other devices.

    “With over 27 billion connected devices in the world today (and growing), the Computes platform provides us with the necessary building blocks to make spatial computing available to everyone,” said Gus Pinto, VP of product and engineering at Magic Leap. “Through the many private beta users already using Computes, we look to gain valuable feedback and begin developing a portfolio of services for developers, creators, enterprises and end-users to help leverage the power of spatial computing on any platform.”
