Learnings from the Unity MARS HMD companion app
The spatial design team, part of the authoring tools group in Unity Labs, is currently working on a head-mounted display (HMD) companion app for Unity MARS.
EditorXR lets you create content spatially, bringing the full functionality of the Unity Editor’s authoring tools into reality.
Labs Spotlight: Unity MARS
Unity MARS is a new Unity toolset specifically designed to help our creators make better spatial experiences and games that can run anywhere in the world.
Practical Real-Time Hex-Tiling
Learn about adapting the hex-tiling method, by Heitz and Neyret, which allows a shader artist or engineer to adopt the technique within minutes into any shader.
ProtoRes: architecture for deep modeling of human pose
ProtoRes can be used for advanced AI-assisted animation tooling to construct a full static human pose based on sparse and variable user inputs.
A sliced Wasserstein loss for neural texture synthesis
Learn more about the problem of computing a textural loss based on the statistics extracted from the feature activations of a CNN optimized for object recognition.
Shader and texture level of detail using ray cones
Improvements to the ray-cones algorithm improve image quality and performance in game engines.

From our team
“There is much untapped potential for easy content acquisition using consumer devices such as mobile phones and webcams. And we are on a mission to tap it!”
“As we write software for XR, we need to develop systems that support continually changing requirements due to the pace at which innovation is happening.”
“We work with bleeding-edge research of all kinds to explore what game authoring and development will look like in 10 years.”
“Unity Labs Grenoble is pushing the math and physics of rendering for better, faster, stronger graphics. We share our discoveries through world-class scientific publications and open-source prototypes.”
“Technical knowledge should not be the boundary of imagination. Instead, thoughts and intents should be interpreted by the machine to become the next programming language.”
“Autonomous robotics and machine learning open the road to game AIs that are both easier to author and more fun to play with.”
