I digged today in Amazon Sumerian. Nice platform, similar to PlayCanvas. They allow AR output to 8thWall (interesting solution but not acceptable for their pricing policy and poor WebXR tracking that is not comparable to native ArKit and ArCore anchors).
But they have 2 ready to developer applications for ArKit and ArCore that fill the gap from VR PlayCanvas world and AR world.
I think you should fill this gap too if you want to do a giant leap towards AR. It’s hard for us, not for you.
We’ve just finished a Shopify site with a nice configurator app developed in NextJS + PlayCanvas for VR experience, but for AR we started with ViroMedia and then switched to native ArKit and ArCore apps. Very expensive!
For next jobs we are thinking to start with Amazon Sumerian for that reason: 1 code for VR and AR. It should be nice if we have the opportunity to develop in PC too, not with another platform.
Last: neither you and Sumerian have an app for prototype AR apps on mobile like Expo.io or ViroMedia. If you do that, I will suggest PC for lot of Italian schools (and you for the rest of the World).
Nice could be more starter projects to avoid boilerplate, anche nicer to have a basic assets store.
Thank you so much.
