ARCore Parkour: Building Your First Augmented Reality App

Exception Stage

About the event

Today there are lots of case studies for Spatial Computing (Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Mixed Reality etc) in education and entertainment. Unfortunately, the newly released ARCore features like Augmented Images still lack tutorials and practical examples. In this interactive session, Noble Ackerson, a seasoned Technical Product Lead and GDE, shares insights with examples through a fun "choose your own adventure" technical talk (Bandersnatch-style), on how to build marker-based AR with Augmented Images to create experiences to transform data from the world into practical utility for your users.
