Wikitude launches optimized SDKs for Google Glass, Epson Moverio BT-200, and Vuzix M100
Barcelona, Spain, Mobile World Congress, February 24, 2014 - As part of the world’s largest gathering of mobile related technology,
Wikitude has officially launched specialized augmented reality SDKs for Google Glass, the Epson Moverio BT-200, and the Vuzix M100 wearable display devices.
Each SDK is now available via the Wikitude Store, competitively priced at 2499€ and features:
- Unlimited distribution for the licensed app
- 3D model rendering
- Image recognition
- Location based AR
- 6 months support
The individual SDKs are available at:
Google Glass - Augmented Reality SDK for Google Glass
Epson Moverio BT-200 - Augmented Reality SDK for Epson Moverio BT-200
Vuzix M100 - Augmented Reality SDK for Vuzix M100
As each of these devices have their own specific requirements and use cases, Wikitude engineers have tailored the individual SDKs with both developers and end users in mind.
For instance, special consideration has been given to Google Glass as it is a heads up display, and not a full AR device. Conversely, the Epson Moverio BT-200 is a full AR device, complete with a “see-through” mode which superimposes augmentations on a live view, whereas Google Glass and Vuzix provide augmentations as part of a live streaming video feed.
The Wikitude SDK for the BT-200 has been specifically designed to support this “see-through” option, with 2D augmentations always appearing in the foreground, and 3D augmentations appearing on top of the target image. The end result is a less strenuous eye experience for the end user.
“We’ve done a lot of research, testing, and development with each device and their associated SDK. With Wikitude providing developers with all the tools they need to create incredible wearable display experiences, we’re staying true to our ethos of powering the next generation of computing,” comments Martin Herdina, CEO, Wikitude.
