Today sees the public launch of the excellent Augmented Reality plugin for Unity from String.
Focusing intensively on creating their technology for use with Unity, String have been working with a number of respected Unity developers to create showcase material as they have worked through an intensive beta stage over the past year.
At today’s Augmented Reality Summit, String will unveil some of their latest developments that go far beyond what they have teased so far. You can watch the String presentation via the following Stream live or as an edited version once their talk has finished –
Democratising Augmented Reality
String touts one of its key selling points as being fast, stable and easy to use, and they are keen to remind Unity developers that they aim to bring a formerly somewhat inaccessible technology to a new audience of developers thanks to their easy to use toolset. Time will tell how you Unity developers take them up on this but I for one can’t wait to see what you all come up with! Demonstrations so far have been impressive and with further super-secret stuff being unveiled at the Summit, the power of String has yet to be seen.
In a press release combined with today’s launch, Alan Maxwell, CEO and founder states “We are delighted to officially launch String™ to the world. We’d like to thank everyone for their support and interest. There’s been huge anticipation from both the global development community and international brands. We’re very excited to finally unleash String™, and to be working closely with our partners to drive innovation. We can’t wait to see the ideas that emerge, and we are working hard to develop the technology even further, so watch this space.”
