The basic principle of Magik Eye’s 3D depth sensors is based on the triangulation method using an infrared laser and a CMOS image sensor. However, using a unique algorithm developed by Magik Eye 3D, point cloud data can be acquired at high speeds and with very low latency using simple hardware configuration.
Magik Eye Developer Kit with the ILT001 sensor, a.k.a. DK-ILT001, is a 3D sensor designed to connect to a Raspberry Pi single-board computer. It is aimed at researchers in companies and laboratories at universities who want to easily evaluate Magik Eye technology and to explore depth sensors' applications in various technical fields.
The hardware of ILT001 has laser projector, CMOS image sensor and electrical circuits for connecting Raspberry Pi.
A Raspberry Pi and a connected DK-ILT001 module are converted into a network-connectable 3D sensor by installing Magik Eye firmware and calibration data.
ILT002 is an evaluation kit based on MagikEye’s proprietary Invertible Light Technology, It combines a simple infrared laser projector with a standard CMOS image sensor to achieve 3D imaging at more than 600 FPS. ILT002 aims to evaluate Invertible Light Technology's capability at the high performance levels for latency and FPS.
ILT003 is an evaluation kit providing a 3D Sensing Camera module based on MagikEye’s proprietary Invertible Light Technology, along with the capability of capturing monochrome images illuminated by Infrared flood light. It combines a simple infrared laser projector with a standard CMOS image sensor to achieve 3D imaging at up to 100 FPS. ILT003 aims to evaluate the captured 3D point cloud data and Infrared images simultaneously.

The ability to see clearly and understand the surrounding environment is critical for robots and many machine vision applications. Current 3D sensors often have trouble with things like reflective surfaces, un-textured white walls, bright sunlight, dark interior spaces, and translucent objects such as windows. MagikEye was designed to see all of that, and more.
Our family of 3D sensing solutions support a wide range of applications, from smartphones, robotics and surveillance applications. Our solutions offer the smallest, fastest and most power-efficient 3D sensing. MagikEye’s technology also includes greater field of view (FOV) flexibility than all other methods. This flexibility includes hemispherical fish eye depth sensing and 90-degree FOV that is capable of speeds up 300+ frames per second (FPS).
Magik Eye's technology is based on Invertible Light™ which is our new theory for depth sensing. Invertible Light™ is a breakthrough of optics and mathematics that generates a 3D point cloud, using only a regular dot projector and an image sensor. By projecting a regular dot pattern on an object, the Invertible Light™ method, composed of a small set of data and a direct algorithm, computes 3D depth data in an ultra-high speed manner. The result is the smallest, fastest & most power-efficient 3D sensing.
Invertible Light™ is in stark contrast to current 3D sensing methods. For example, Structured Light requires the projection of a specific or random pattern to measure distortions. The result is significant power, multiple components and complexity of production. In contrast to the Time of Flight (ToF) method that is good for longer distances, Invertible Light™ has greater visibility in shorter distances with similar advantages of size, speed and power-efficiency.
Less laser power consumption
Variable FOV and lens distortion
Efficient calibration process instead of active alignment
Higher S/N to handle more variety of reflective materials
Direct algorithm with minimal computational power
Can use most optically efficient lasers (1/10th of Structured Light)
Implemented with a VCSEL & DOE and clever algorithm
Simplified production process with no active alignment needed
Mobile devices are changing the way we communicate, shop, and more. Cameras are more than just taking pretty pictures. With Magik Eye, they can recognize individual faces and differentiate them.
Businesses and consumers are increasingly depending on robots to perform tasks to support human capability. Magik Eye ensures these powerful robots see the world crystal clear.
The world of mixed reality offers up a new and exciting way to see the world. With Magik Eye, the ability to sense in full 360 degrees will enrich the experience and enhance the viewer’s perception.

MagikEye provided a solution where the controller can remotely see the surroundings of the expensive objects in real-time and all in 3D. So the user can choose which view and where to look. As data is in 3D, it is easy to detect objects and measure the distance, which is crucial to prevent collisions and plan future movements.
