Wikitude revolutionizes the creation of Augmented Reality content with new “ARchitect” platform
05/22/2011

Unlimited possibilities for developers with simple HTML and JavaScript

Online PR News – 22-May-2011 – – Until recently, content owners and developers were very much restricted to a rather limited set of functionality Augmented Reality (AR) Browsers offered to them. Typically, developers could only execute a predefined set of functions to create AR experiences specified by AR browsers. With the introduction of ARchitect, Wikitude (http://www.wikitude.org) now enables the developer to reuse the super-rich feature set offered in HTML and JavaScript to build AR content. Essentially, ARchitect allows developers to create AR Worlds as if they would create their own web page. There is no need to learn new concepts, languages or code, Wikitude’s ARchitect makes already existing concepts even more powerful. Wikitude’s CTO Martin Lechner explains, “In my opinion, having these simple yet flexible and powerful tools, developers will start creating AR content to look more like an application, rather than just geo-referenced content. With ARchitect we are answering literally hundreds of requests from our AR community to provide a powerful set of tools which would enable them to realize their most creative AR ideas.”

To get a comprehensive description of Wikitude’s new ARchitect platform, Martin has written a detailed blog – available at www.wikitude.org/ARchitect providing all the information needed on the new set of tools available. Since the blog includes lots of visuals it is easy to understand the power of this new platform even without having any technical knowledge at all. Interested developers can also now register at www.wikitude.org/ARchitect to be the first to receive updates on the latest ARchitect developments.
