Amazon Sumerian Aims to Make VR, AR App Creation a Breeze

Easily Build VR/AR Applications With Amazon Sumerian

The company's Amazon Web Services unit announced Amazon Sumerian, a new service for building VR, AR, and 3D applications that can be viewed on mobile devices, head-mounted displays, digital signage, and web browsers.

An example of how publishers can use the new video tools unveiled by Amazon Web Services at re:Invent 2017.

Amazon is jumping onto the augmented and virtual reality bandwagon with the launch of Sumerian, a new application that's supposed to make it easier for people to develop 3D experiences for a wide variety of platforms.

Once a developer has created a 3D scene, they can publish and run it on a number of platforms - including Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and iOS.

Amazon writes, "Amazon Sumerian solves these challenges by providing a web-based editor that developers can use to easily and quickly create professional-quality scenes, and a visual scripting tool to build the logic that controls how the objects and characters in the scenes behave and respond to actions".

You can select from pre-existing assets from Amazon or import your own in FBX and OBJ files.

Asset Import: Upload 3D assets to use in your scene.

Past year online retail giant Amazon launched its first foray into videogame development with its Lumberyard game engine, adding and improving support for virtual reality (VR) content creation in the following months.

Experiences built in Sumerian aren't confined to a single platform, the post said.

Developers will also be given access to a set of "hosts", these are 3D characters that can customer to interact with a user. Amazon Sumerian is integrated with Amazon Lex and Amazon Polly, which provide automatic speech recognition (ASR), natural language understanding (NLU), and text-to-speech capabilities.

Object Library: a library of pre-built objects and templates. "But customers are daunted and overwhelmed by the up-front investment in specialized skills and tools required to even get started building a VR or AR application". "With Amazon Sumerian, it is now possible for any developer to create a realistic, interactive VR or AR application in a few hours". As more developers look to support AR and VR, and platform owners continue to expand what devices can do, Sumerian could help make AWS a key home for developing the applications of the future.
