Users Without Coding Skills Can Now Create AR Experiences with WakingApp Visual Scripting

Using the new drag-and-drop function, any designer can create engaging augmented reality experiences.

An AR toolkit will now allow designers to create augmented reality experience without coding skills. The developers of WakingApp toolset announced that they added visual scripting to the design studio. This means that designers can use a simple drag and drop function which translates into coded design. Thus, they will create the logic of AR interactions without writing a single line of code.

Creating Augmented Reality Experiences, Easier than Ever for App Designers

Augmented reality is the most in-demand feature for all types of content mediums, including mobile apps. Users enjoy the sense of manipulating holographic items as if they were real life objects. Beyond the appeal of AR for gaming and shopping, it is practical for a wide range of industries, from logistics to healthcare.

The Israel-based company behind WakingApp understood the growing demand for this new technology. Because of its integration with ARKit and ARCore, their augmented reality toolset helps developers create and deploy augmented reality experiences quickly.

“Since its launch, WakingApp has concentrated on the development of advanced and unique technologies that serve the market’s needs. Now, as the case for AR concepts becomes more established and mainstream, we are well-positioned to continue our rapid user-growth and licensing opportunities,” said CEO Matan Libis in a press release.

The versatility of WakingApp allows designers to for example:

  • Integrate AR features into existing SDKs;
  • Create stand-alone augmented reality apps;
  • Update existing content on the spot without having to submit a new app to the app stores.

Matan Libis explained the importance of the new feature:

“By adding visual scripting, we are providing a tool so that even more individuals can leverage this budding technology as brands and companies start to realize the enormous commercial potential for augmented reality.”

How Does WakingApp Work?

WakingApp augmented reality toolkit relies on mobile-optimized 3D rendering, cloud image recognition, as well as a tracking library for image and QR. The engine has a native API that uses the JavaScript language.

The integration with both AR toolkits developed by Apple and Google allows designers to create augmented reality experiences for a wide range of mobile devices. Some of the major companies currently using WakingApp are for example Microsoft, Siemens and Autodesk.
