Vuforia, which offers software development tools for making augmented reality apps, has released its newest SDK. Vuforia 6 adds support for making AR apps with Windows 10 and its UWP platform and with the HoloLens headset.
A pre-release version of Vuforia 6 was demoed during one of the Build 2016 keynote events in March. The demo showed how an AR app on a Surface tablet could view a flat product catalog from Caterpillar and see a full 3D version of one of the company's front loaders from within the app. Then a person could wear a HoloLens headset and view that same front loader as a full size 3D object, which could be walked around completely.
In a blog post, Vuforia said:
The release of Vuforia 6 is also the first version of the SDK to work on Intel and x86-based processor devices.
