Android Devs Get Augmented Reality Extension

Qualcomm has introduced its Augmented Reality (AR) Extension for Unity.

Qualcomm’s AR Extension for Unity will allow developers to use Unity’s game development tool to build augmented reality applications for Android smartphones.

The Extension, combined with the Unity development platform, expands the options available and allows developers to build richer interactive games and applications with shorter development times.

“In order to drive developer adoption, we are leveraging leading development tools,” said Jay Wright, director of business development at Qualcomm.

“Unity has proven to be the development platform of choice for both 2D and 3D game development on mobile platforms, making them the obvious choice for this collaboration. Combined with Unity’s vibrant developer ecosystem, we believe that the Qualcomm AR Extension for Unity will be a significant catalyst for augmented reality game development.”
