Good news for the 30,000 developers who wantÂ to augment street scenes in real-time.
Metaio is releasing platform-independent, augmented reality production software that unifies all of its software in a language that it calls AREL (AR Experience Language).
The tools, including an SDK, allow people to augment nearly any image or object outdoors or indoors by providing anÂ AR production method that has scalability, according to the company.
A video demonstrates an example of augmented reality in Downtown Munich, or more specifically, “fusing GPS and 3-D tracking to overlay a real-time demo of the famous Glockenspiel on the Marienplatz.”
AugmentedÂ reality (AR) is, of course, a label for the various ways of adding digital information via on-screen flags to the video feed produced by a smartphone’s or tablet’s camera.
Metaio additionally introduced a brand new version of its Metaio Creator, a simplified desktop publishing tool that is aimed at non-developers looking to play around with AR.
