Andrei Feskovich, a fifth-year student of the TSU Institute of Mathematics and Computer Science and staff member of the VR/AR laboratory, has won the UMNIK competition in the virtual and augmented reality area. He will develop a library for creating a user interface that will simplify, speed up, and streamline the creation of AR applications.
The idea of the project is that for the development of modern, increasingly complex augmented and virtual reality applications, more modern, flexible solutions are needed. They will help to create a user interface of any complexity and do not violate the extensibility and mutability of these applications.
The author intends to provide the necessary flexibility of solutions by presenting them in the form of modules arranged in a certain way. The finished library will include new architectural solutions aimed at improving properties such as connectivity, linking, simplicity in the creation of their own variants by other programmers, and others.
To understand the trends of modern AR/VR development, Andrey Feskovich analyzes the libraries presented on the global market and new applications that are being launched by leading companies in AR/VR.
The new product will be distributed through the Unity Asset Store for free or for a nominal fee for those who do not make money from using it, and the enterprise version will be at a cost.
