Roughly six months after emerging from stealth, AR cloud company 6D.ai is now ready for public consumption, and it has a big name to help it kick off its platform.
On Tuesday, the startup gave iOS developers
In addition, the AR cloud platform would provide spatial mapping to head-mounted devices running the Qualcomm Snapdragon XR1 chipset as well as tethered AR viewers and smartphones running on Qualcomm Snapdragon. The first Snapdragon device to take advantage of the partnership wants to be the Nreal Light. Android 6D.ai wants to rollout into a closed beta.
"The 3D model of the world's next platform will run on," said Matt Miesnieks, CEO and co-founder, 6D.ai, in a statement. AR to scanning, location-based services and in the future, drones and robotics. "Today's rollout of our business model Qualcomm Technologies are the first of many steps that we are taking toward building this 3D map of the world. "
Companies including Autodesk, Nexus Studios, and Accenture among the Fortune 500 companies building solutions via the platform, according to 6D.ai, although the brands are not ready to launch their apps.
Along with this milestone, 6D.ai unveiled the pricing structure for its SDK. SDK usage.
But starting in 2020, 6D.ai wants to meter usage based on map Pricing kicks in at $ 20 per month for up to 20,000 map downloads per month per app and $ 50 per month for up to 50,000 downloads, with developers getting real-time mapping and unlimited meshing and occlusion for up to 5,000 map downloads per month map downloads.
Last year, the AR cloud captured the attention of the augmented reality community, with Niantic, Ubiquity6, and others introducing their platforms and demonstrating demos of the next-level AR experiences, including multiplayer experiences, persistent content, and real-world occlusion, that their spatial mapping technologies could facilitate.
Up until now, though, none of the AR cloud providers have launched their platforms in earnest. Sure, Niantic updated Ingress Prime and launches Harry Potter Wizards Unite with their Real World Platform.
"6D was born to deliver the next platform of computing – the 3D maps of the world, usable by machines and people … the mirror-world. "UX problems for their next-gen apps," wrote Miesnieks in a blog
"We are seeing this happening today with a lot of industries looking to build spatially aware applications that go beyond AR to scanning, location-based services and in the future." , drones and robotics. "
p o, it looks like we can give the first lap in the race to claim the AR cloud to 6D.ai, but there's some critical mass to achieve before you can really claim a victory here. And finally, the AR cloud is realized, […]
