We were all blown away by the demon­stra­tion of Google Du­plex’s phone con­ver­sa­tion skills at the I/O de­vel­oper con­fer­ence ear­lier in the year, but while this so­phis­ti­cated AI might be able to pass the tur­ing test from the other end of a phone, it’s not much to look at. Magic Leap wants to change this with a new vir­tual as­sis­tant named Mika which is em­bod­ied by a to-scale hu­manoid an­i­ma­tion that re­sides on the com­pany’s plat­form. From what lit­tle we’ve seen Mika’s ex­pres­sions are as fright­en­ingly con­vinc­ing as any­thing we heard from Du­plex.
