Star Wars: Project Porg Mixed Reality Experiment Announced

October 08,2018 by ILMxLAB

Project Porg will be released for free download on Magic Leap One this December. More details are coming soon, so check back here for all the latest updates.

Porgs, porgs, and more porgs! These fluffy creatures first seen in Star Wars: The Last Jedi are back again – this time in mixed reality with our latest immersive experiment, Star Wars: Project Porg.

In Project Porg, you will need to gain the trust and affection of your porgs by offering them treats and playing with them.  Teach them how to maneuver real-world environments with care instructions from Star Wars’ most meticulous droid, C-3PO. Debuting this week at Magic Leap’s L.E.A.P Conference, we will share a first look at this experimental demo on the show floor.

More details of Project Porg will be shared onstage by ILMxLAB Executive in Charge Vicki Dobbs Beck during the conference keynote on Wednesday October 10 starting at 9am PT.

Attending the conference? Hear from Michael Koperwas during his talk, ILMxLAB’s Galactic Lessons with Mixed Reality Storytelling, on Wednesday 1:40pm – 2:30pm on the Keynote Stage. Learn all about the insights and learnings from our collaboration with Magic Leap and our innovative approaches to storytelling in this new medium.
