Learn Augmented Reality and Create interactive augmented reality experiences for iOS and Android using Vuforia and Unity3D
So what is Augmented Reality?
Augmented reality (AR) is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are “augmented” by computer-generated or extracted real-world sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data.
In Augmented Reallity the real view is modified by a computer (Smartphone in this case). Augmented reality enhances one’s current perception of reality, whereas in contrast, virtual reality replaces the real world with a simulated one. Augmentation techniques are basically performed in real time,
Power of Augmented Reality
I came across Augmented Reality in 2015 after watching a video of Animal Models on augmented on an image. I was fascinated to know that such technology actually exists. So I started researching on different Augmented Reality platform. Vuforia platform seemed very promising as developers all over the World have used Vuforia for developing Augmented Reality apps.
I learned Vuforia and after that started freelancing on augmented reality services. It literally gave an upward push to my freelancing career there and then. It still has a lot of potential in the IT services market. I worked for a few years providing these services where I built a lot of augmented reality applications for clients in USA, UK and many other countries. These included interactive explained apps, live magazines, construction animations in AR and many more.
Course Content and Overview
This course is designed for students interested in creating Augmented Reality apps. No high-fi coding experience is required; all you need a little bit of experience of Unity 3D with C# is an Android or iOS device for testing your Augmented Reality apps.
You can check my Paid course of Unity 3D if you want to learn Unity 3D and become Pro.
