This new framework from Wikitude would have sure come in handy for some of last year’s AR-based NMD capstones.
Augmented Reality: Wikitude ARchitect http://www.wikitude.org/architect (Via Bruce Sterling)
Whenever we looked at Augmented Reality (AR) content platforms, we have always found them far too restrictive for AR content developers. They all offer a handful of features, which often limit the creative ideas AR content developers have. So we at Wikitude thought, “that’s not ideal, we need to change this, and we need to change this NOW!”
We asked ourselves this question a few months ago…..and created ARchitect!
ARchitect – a new way of creating Augmented Reality experiences
Geolocation drawings by YOU! Concepts behind ARchitect
The three key concepts for us when designing the ARchitect were: 1) Developers shouldn’t be required to learn new concepts or tools. 2) The ARchitect should be very simple to get into, do something meaningful with only a few lines of code. 3) And yet, it should be massively powerful and flexible to create highly complex AR applications.
Animations by YOU You can animate the objects and their visualizations, make them rotate, scale, disappear, … It’s totally up to you! Play sounds and videos, do network interaction, create interactive games, even with network multiplayer mode, let your phone vibrate, and much much more! With the ARchitect, you finally have a powerful tool in your hand to create incredible, mind-blowing AR applications!
The sky is the limit – realize your ideas
