Key features

Plain Language Authoring
Plain-language authoring

The rules workflow describes AR layouts and behaviors in plain language. Rules allow you to set conditions or actions for surfaces and objects, reducing the amount of code required to build your app.

Proxy-based workflow

Build your app with proxies that represent real-world objects. With a framework in place, you set conditions and actions on your proxies to tell the app how to respond to them.

Simulate in editor
Simulate in the Editor

Simulation environments use Prefabs (or your own dinfed data) to test your AR app within the Editor, helping you spot issues and cut down on iteration time.

Customizable building blocks

Get started with templates that cover popular AR use cases, including a training tutorial application that works with all Unity Mars indoor and outdoor environment templates.
