@Amazon Launches #Sumerian, a Browser-Based AR/VR/3D-Experience Engine

Currently in preview, Amazon’s Sumerian promises “no expertise needed” in order to create – and one assumes ultimately to distribute – 3D content and applications for AR and VR. A few bullet points to begin with:

  • “support for Unity projects coming soon”
  • Create digital characters and animate them, control their voice and behaviors
  • Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and mobile viewers are supported
  • Lastly, “Sumerian is based on the WebGL JavaScript API for graphic rendering and WebVR JavaScript API for virtual reality devices. It also supports the ARKit framework for augmented reality on iOS devices. Support for the ARCore platform for augmented reality on Android devices is coming soon.”

They’ve provided a sample scene here.

If you have had an opportunity to read any of my blog posts or attended any session I’ve conducted at various conferences, you are probably aware that I am definitively a geek girl. I am absolutely enamored with all of the latest advancements that have been made in technology areas like cloud, artificial intelligence, internet of things and the maker space, as well as, with virtual reality and augmented reality. In my opinion, it is a wonderful time to be a geek. All the things that we dreamed about building while we sweated through our algorithms and discrete mathematics classes or the technology we marveled at when watching Star Wars and Star Trek are now coming to fruition. So hopefully this means it will only be a matter of time before I can hyperdrive to other galaxies in space, but until then I can at least build the 3D virtual reality and augmented reality characters and images like those featured in some of my favorite shows.
