Aws Lumberyard – a developer’s journey part 7

AWS Sumerian has arrived in preview.

I have been telling the team that the main things that are stopping augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) becoming mainstream are:

  1. Cost of the hardware – which is rapidly dropping and with things like Google cardboard becoming cheap (with the right mobile phone).
  2. Shifting the development from a programmer environment to a designer environment.

And guess what – Amazon has now launched Sumerian in preview test mode.

From their website:

“Amazon Sumerian lets you create and run virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and 3D applications quickly and easily without requiring any specialized programming or 3D graphics expertise.”

Perfect! I’m applying to get on the preview programme and if accepted I’ll let you know my impressions! Watch this space.
