P16 - BYOD: Creating Mobile Augmented Reality Experiences with Unity
Using Unity is a game-changer for creating immersive AR experiences for both Android and iOS devices using the Vuforia Unity plugin. But what does it take to create augmented reality for Android and iOS devices? How do you get started? What kind of tools and coding knowledge do you need to have? These are all valid questions you need to consider when you want to dive into the world of augmented reality for mobile devices.
In this hands-on workshop you'll get started developing mobile apps that leverage both ARKit 2 and ARCore functionality using Unity. You will learn how to build AR learning experiences for iPhones, iPads, and Android devices, reaching millions of users with devices they already have. You will learn how to trigger these augmented learning experiences with print material and 3D objects and receive resources and sample files that you can use long after the workshop is over.
In this session, you will learn:
- Unity basics
- How to create content within Unity, and import content from other locations
- How to recognize 3D planes and 3D objects
- How to play audio and video within an augmented experience
- How to publish your app to your device or app store
