Ian Curtis showcased a cool AR experiment made with 8th Wall's VPS technology.
Ian Curtis, an XR Developer Support Engineer at Niantic, has recently showcased an impressive experiment with augmented reality. Leveraging 8th Wall's Lightship Visual Positioning System (VPS) technology, the developer managed to effectively turn the living room into a retro-style game level, reminiscent of those found on Nintendo's Game Boy consoles. According to the developer, this achievement was made possible by aligning 3D assets with a 3D scan of the living room and then anchoring the AR experience with VPS.
For those unfamiliar, 8th Wall's Lightship VPS enables precise determination of a user's position and orientation with centimeter-level accuracy in just seconds. Utilizing this platform, you can integrate VPS into your WebAR projects, creating location-based web AR experiences that bridge the gap between the real world and the digital realm.
WebAR content can be anchored to specific locations, allowing virtual objects to interact seamlessly with their surroundings. This enhances the augmented reality experience, making it more personal, meaningful, and lifelike, and providing users with new incentives to explore their surroundings.
