Summary… * Machine-Made


Amazon has announced a browser-based toolkit called #Sumerian that the company hopes will make virtual reality and augmented reality development accessible to people without advanced coding or 3D rendering skills.
Built on Amazon Web Services, the toolkit is intended to help with building experiences like "training simulations, virtual concierge services, enhanced online shopping experiences, [and] virtual house or land tours."
Apart from Microsoft's Windows Mixed Reality platform, you also have #ARKit, #ARCore, and various game development platforms and engines.
#Sumerian supports Apple's #ARKit, which is an augmented reality platform for iOS devices.
That said, it is built on the WebGL JavaScript and WebVR JavaScript APIs, and it offers a JavaScript editor and scripting library.
