Developer Kit & Environment for Mixed Reality

What is Mixed Reality?

Fusing the physical and digital worlds comes under many names; mixed reality and augmented reality have been defined in part by hit games such as Niantic’s Pokemon Go and Marvel’s Iron Man. Unlike virtual reality, mixed reality incorporates the real world and builds on top of it, so that the virtual coexists with the actual.

The technology has found early traction in the industrial sector with applications in construction, field work and enterprise visualization. However, mixed-reality platforms that realize these visions remain expensive in the short term. Seebright is changing that.

Reality Developer Kit™

The Seebright Reality Developer Kit (RDK) is a Unity plugin, web editor and hardware viewer that together enables the production of mixed-reality content. The core capabilities build on top of Google’s mobile VR SDK.

The environment is target-platform agnostic: the tools can be used to develop Windows Holographic applications for the Windows Hololens and to support emerging mixed reality HMDs such as the Meta 2. The RDK addresses the challenges unique to mixed reality:

  • Interface design for multiple fields of view
  • Rapid content iteration by testing interface designs without recompiling
  • Authoring content that incorporates and builds on real world environments
  • Enabling anyone to edit and update custom content and core behaviors using Javascript and web-based authoring tools

When the nature of content changes, then the tools that shape it must change as well. Development platforms currently targeting video-through augmented reality and virtual reality require new approaches in order to support an emerging generation of mixed reality applications and content.
