WebAR: The Augmented Reality for your Browser

Submitted by Suroor Wijdan (@wijdansuroor) on Saturday, 20 April 2019

Section: Full talk (40 mins) Technical level: Intermediate

Abstract

This talk takes you on a journey of modern day AR applications and what it has to offer for the Web. We will quickly go through general Mixed Reality concepts for VR and AR, particularly from the perspective of a web developer. Though AR is hard, tools, libraries and API’s like WebXR, A-Frame VR from Mozilla, AR.js, Argon.js make it easy for a web developer to create interesting and meaningful experiences on the web. We will go through the possibilities that the web offers today in terms of Mixed Reality and what use-cases we can solve using AR. The talk will end with a Demo and a brief review of the code behind it.

Talk End: Resources to learn and tools that you can use in your apps.
