AR Foundation

A framework purpose-built for augmented reality development that allows you to build rich experiences once, then deploy across multiple mobile and wearable AR devices.

Take advantage of a unified workflow

AR Foundation includes core features from ARKit, ARCore, Magic Leap, and HoloLens, as well as unique Unity features to build robust apps that are ready to ship to internal stakeholders or on any app store. This framework enables you to take advantage of all of these features in a unified workflow.

Future-proof your AR apps

AR Foundation lets you take currently unavailable features with you when you switch between AR platforms. If a feature is enabled on one platform but not another, we put hooks in so that it’s ready to go later. When the feature is enabled on the new platform, you can easily integrate it by updating your packages rather than having to completely rebuild your app from scratch.

Create AR experiences with your existing Unity skills

Take advantage of all the awesome features and workflows we’re building for Unity, from the Universal Render Pipeline to ECS, as you’re building your AR app. 

Integrates with Unity MARS

Sitting on top of our AR Foundation framework, the Unity MARS authoring environment enables creators to build AR experiences that intelligently interact with the real world.
