*One of the goals for the UM and Magic Leap strategic collaboration is for the University of Miami community to work together to build a "Magicverse" — a virtual spatial computing world with an infinite number of "digital layers" and applications. This "Magicverse" was also described as "a digital version of UM that can extend the campus to anywhere in the world."
