Qualcomm's Vision-based Augment Reality platform now available for Unity

I’m going to keep this one brief, as these sorts of posts tend to turn into walls of text. No one likes walls of text.

Remember that free Augmented Reality SDK from Qualcomm that we showed you back in July? We said it’d lower the bar for Augmented Reality stuff considerably, nixing the requirement for developers to reinvent the image-recognition-capable wheel.

Well, consider the bar lowered even further. Today, Qualcomm has released a beta version of that same Augmented Reality SDK as an extension to Unity 3, a cross-platform (and rather incredible) game engine/development environment.

This comes one week before Qualcomm opens up their Augmented Reality developer challenge, wherein a few talented folks will walk away with anywhere from $25,000 to $125,000. Ready to throw down some semi-colons and make you some monies? You can nab the Unity extension right over here.
