Qualcomm Incorporated announced the immediate commercial availability of its Augmented Reality (AR) Platform for Android smartphones.
Offered through Qualcomm’s online developer network, this 1.0 release marks the successful completion of the company’s beta programme. Developers can now build, market and commercially distribute applications based on the Qualcomm AR platform.
Qualcomm’s award-winning AR platform will enable a broad range of experiences that entertain, engage and inform consumers with a new form of interactive media.
The platform’s rich feature set enables developers to build high-performance, interactive 3D experiences on real world images, such as those used in print media (books, magazines, brochures, tickets, signs) and on product packaging.
“Qualcomm has a long history of providing advanced technologies that drive innovation and opportunity for the mobile ecosystem,” said Jay Wright, senior director of business development, Qualcomm.
“We continue the tradition by making leading AR technology widely available to developers for commercial use. With more than 6,000 registered developers, we look forward to a new generation of AR applications available in the Android market and other application stores.”
The Qualcomm AR Platform is available immediately at developer.qualcomm.com/ar
