What is an AR app?

An AR app (Augmented Reality), is specially designed software applications that merges digital visual and audio content into a user’s real-world environment. It has many uses, seen to assist medical training, educational purposes, repair work and so on.

How does an AR app work?

Augmented reality app development features the following steps. Computer vision software comprehends what is in the real-world environment around the user from the content of the camera feed. This allows the AR app to display digitised content relative to what the user is looking at then and there. Digital content is shown in a realistic way, looking as if it’s part of the real world- what we refer to as rendering. Computer vision will process raw images from the camera, triggering the app. An in-built 3D rendering module will augment the original frame, assuring the render precisely overlaps the image in the ‘real-world’ As augmented reality is life, all of the above steps have to occur every time a new frame comes from the camera.

What is the difference between augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR)?

Unlike VR, Augmented reality apps (AR app), will add digital features to a live view digital elements to a live view of the real-world environment by using a handheld device's camera, most often on a smartphone. A good example of augmented reality experiences is the Pokemon Go game and Snapchat filters. Virtual reality however is a complete, full-bodied immersion experience that allows the user to shut out the physical world. The game Oculus Rift is an example of VR, and transports users into a variety of imagined environments and encourages new out of the box experiences.

What is the process of building an Augmented Reality app?

Diving into the world of augmented reality app development services is intimidating. However, if you divide the technical jargon into manageable chunks and turn them into more straightforward steps, mastering a new skill comes easier. We’ve highlighted the key elements to consider when it comes to AR app creation.

  1. Enhance your creative idea by conducting a thorough competitor analysis.

  2. Explore the existing SK markets and platforms for augmented reality development. Opt for one which fits your expertise, budget and creative idea the most. Vuforia, Wikitude * ARToolKit require a profound knowledge of C++, Java, or C#, whereas tools like Blippar and Aurasma are an excellent tool for beginners.

  3. AR app development requires the presence of physical 3D objects. You can download existing models or make them yourself.

  4. Another key element is to make a 2D tracker, which is a specific image of your choosing that gets placed on a surface, and later scanned and rendered through AR-aided devices.

  5. Create a design unique to your business, prep all necessary 3D models, images, text files and data.

  6. Put all elements together on a platform of your choice.

The visual features of your new augmented reality app are limited by your imagination and your developers budget: The more demanding your requests, the higher your AR App cost. As of 2021, AR app development costs ranged from:

  • Simple AR applications: $30-50 000
