Augmented Reality Gaming with Tony Godar
Augmented reality applications can be used on smartphones and dedicated AR headsets. On smartphones, ARCore (Google) and ARKit (Apple) allow developers to build for the camera on a user’s smartphone. AR headsets such as Microsoft HoloLens and Magic Leap allow for a futuristic augmented reality headset experience.
The most prominent use of augmented reality today is gaming, with a notable example being Niantic’s Pokemon Go. Tony Godar is a software engineer who works on augmented and virtual reality applications. He joins the show to talk about his day job working on virtual reality experiences, and an AR game he built called ARhythm.
Tony was the winner of the FindCollabs Hackathon and we also discussed his experience working on the project through FindCollabs.
