Building CMS Backed Augmented Reality Apps With Crafter CMS, Part 1
From Snap Chat to Pokemon Go to the helmets used by F-35 fighter pilots, Augmented Reality (AR) applications are gaining a ton of traction. Unlike virtual reality which attempts to completely replace actual reality with an alternative universe and sensory experience, augmented reality, leverages technology to add a sensory (typically visual) layer of interaction and data on top of our everyday experiences. You can learn more about the difference between VR and AR by watching this free tech-talk / webinar. Augmented reality is so exciting and opens up so many new opportunities because it enhances our physical experience, giving us a way to experience things in a way we never could before.
As with most applications today, AR applications frequently contain a lot of content and related digital media such as 3D models, images, and videos. Often times, textual/markup content and digital media are deployed statically along with the application. This approach creates unwanted dependencies for content updates on the developers and requires laborious deployment processes.
