I've been developing an idea for an AR app over the last year or so. I previously built a basic prototype using Vuforia but decided that I really needed the ability to save my AR objects and share them across user sessions.
So, I've been testing ARCore Cloud Anchors. To the best of my knowledge this is the only cross platform solution presently?
ARkit is iOS only and the various SDK's I've checked don't provide any support.
Anyway, I made a video of my tests. It works well. But, clearly still quite experimental. The 24 hour limit on anchors likely to be removed at some point. But, the process is still fairly cumbersome in order to scan a scene, interact with cloud API and so on.
What are you thoughts? Anyone building anything interesting with Cloud Anchors at the moment?
