This title is part of the Augmented Reality Mini-Degree

Start developing the core skills needed for Augmented Reality development by creating a simple object spawning application. Using the popular Unity game engine, you will dive into creating apps that allow for the placement of virtual objects within the real world – all using your iOS or Android device’s camera. Through this course, you will also learn the fundamentals of Unity’s AR Foundation, a package that allows you to develop for iOS’s ARKit SDK and Android’s ARCore SDK with a single, cross-platform API. With these skills acting as the foundations for a wide range of more complex projects, you’ll soon be building many different AR apps for multiple devices.

You will learn how to:

  • Set up Unity to use AR Foundation
  • Detect various planes with your device’s camera
  • Create a placement indicator where the position is dependant on camera view
  • Spawn virtual objects into the “real world” by tapping the screen

About the Augmented Reality Mini-Degree

The Augmented Reality Mini-Degree shows you how to create your own AR apps and games in Unity with AR Foundation, ARCore, ARKit, and EasyAR. Each course project will help you further enhance your Unity development skills, all while showing you various ways to use your Android or iOS device’s camera to utilize the physical world environment in your projects. By the end, you will be able to create both marker-based and markerless AR applications for unique, interactive, real-world experiences.
