Workshop: “Augmented Reality on Android”
Senior Android Engineer at Softvision
Due to recent hardware advancements, Augmented Reality has begun helping us see the world in a whole new way.
From interactive learning to virtually remodelling your house or gaming, ARCore allows us to create immersive augmented reality applications with minimal development time.
Google’s platform provides an easy way of building novel and collaborative AR experiences without learning complex frameworks such as OpenGL.
Starting off with an entirely new concept is sometimes tough. This workshop will help you set up your first AR project by going through the ARCore integration with the Android framework.
We will then see how simple rendering of virtual objects and interacting with them can be, and how the standard Android Animator API can be used to bring AR objects to life.
At last, we will go through some more advanced concepts you may stumble upon, such as detecting when objects collide or interacting with lights.
