Augmented Reality for the Web

Imagine being able to view and interact with 3D objects in your environment in real time, without leaving your mobile browser. Augmented reality (AR) for the web is here, and we’re pretty excited about it. What does this mean exactly? Well, if you’re a brand, you can publish your own custom AR experience to your website. You can update it in real time and most importantly, anyone can view it, regardless of the mobile device or operating system they’re using. Your customers won’t even have to download an app.

How It Works

Built entirely using standards-compliant JavaScript and WebGL, 8th Wall Web is a complete implementation of 8th Wall’s Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) engine, hyper-optimized for real-time AR on mobile browsers. Features include 6-Degrees of Freedom Tracking, Lighting Estimation, Surface Detection, World Points, Hit Tests, Image Target detection and tracking.
