AR specialist metaio launches free version of mobile SDK for iOS and Android
Having unveiled version 3.0 of its augmented reality SDK at the start of December, metaio has announced it's to roll out a free version of the platform to expand its developer base.

The SDK, which is already behind 70 apps amassing a download total of 10 million, can now be picked up without charge for both iOS and Android.

Free for all

"Compared to other augmented reality software kits, the metaio solution is the most complete and worry free available,"the firm said in a statement.

"The metaio Mobile SDK includes its own 3D rendering engine - now with advanced shader support - meaning there are no hidden development costs.

"At the same time it provides developers with a plugin to make use of Unity3D, one of the most established and powerful gaming engines currently on the market."

Indeed, Unity3D support is one of the new features added with version 3.0, which also includes optimised tracking and rendering pipeline for major mobile chipsets and a gravity aware AR approach.

More details on the SDK can be found on the firm's website.
