About this event

Curious to know about Augmented Reality (AR) but not sure where to start and how to start? Join our hands-on session to kick off your journey in Augmented Reality using Unity and ARCore. No experience is required to start and understand this technical content.


Why AR? Augmented reality (AR) is one of the biggest technology trends right now, and it’s only going to get bigger as AR-ready smartphones and other devices become more accessible around the world. The most famous example of AR technology is the mobile app Pokemon Go, which was released in 2016 and quickly became an inescapable sensation.


What is ARCore: Unity's AR Foundation is a cross-platform framework that allows you to write augmented reality experiences once, then build for either Android or iOS devices without making any additional changes. The framework is available via Unity's AR Foundation package.

ARCore's optional ARCore Extensions for AR Foundation package adds additional functionality, enabling you to use features such as Cloud Anchors, Camera configuration filters, and Recording and Playback to your app.
