Creating VR/AR experiences without programming or 3D model knowledge for IoT
In this Tech Talk, Kevin and David will walk you through the basics of Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality and how it can be used in the context of the Internet of Things.
Tuesday, November 17, 2020
9:00 AM - 11:00 AM (Central Standard Time)
This event has ended.
Kevin will explain and demonstrate AWS Sumerian, a web based platform for constructing Virtual worlds in 3d space. Sumerian is great because it doesn’t require you to be a 3D model expert or programmer to make interactive 3D scenes. Kevin will also cover the AWS Sumerian user interface, how to import models from an ecosystem of model vendors, how to manipulate objects in 3d space, how to set up cameras, and lights and how to publish your 3d scenes as web pages for other to view and interact.
David will demonstrate how AWS IoT Core can be used to interact with your VR/AR scenes. Specifically, he will demonstrate how to create a virtual device (digital twin) on the AWS Thing service, how to set-up and configure an AWS Cognito identity pool to provision required credentials to interact with a virtual device, how to make a scene interactive across multiple users in near-real time.
As a participant, you will be provided access to a virtual world where you can navigate 3D space and interact with numerous elements.
We will conclude with a facilitated discussion about possible use case and an exploration of the benefits and limitations of the technology.
