Watch the interview: Magic Leap’s Rony Abovitz and the NBA’s Adam Silver

Abovitz and Silver were live from Recode’s Code Media conference.

Rony Abovitz, the founder, president and CEO of Magic Leap, and Adam Silver, NBA commissioner, will be live from Recode’s Code Media conference in Huntington Beach, Calif., on Tuesday, Feb. 13, at 3:40 pm PT / 6:40 pm ET.

Abovitz runs one of the most-buzzed-about — and secretive — technology startups in years. Abovitz says his company has created a game-changing augmented reality technology — he calls it “spatial computing” — that can revolutionize gaming, movies and much more. After years of work and billions in funding from the likes of Google and Alibaba, he has promised to start shipping devices this year.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver thinks he can make basketball even bigger by focusing on innovative ways to present the game, with an eye toward capturing younger fans who have grown up on Instagram and Twitch.
