Amazon launches cloud-based 3D editor

28 November 2017

"Amazon Sumerian also makes it easy to build scenes where rich, natural interactions between objects, characters, and users occur through the use of AWS services such as Amazon Lex, Amazon Polly, AWS Lambda, AWS IoT, and Amazon DynamoDB".

Amazon Web Services doesn't charge a fee for designing and editing AR and VR applications.

Users simply log into the AWS Management Console to begin building VR and AR apps using a drag and drop system.

Turkey: 1st lady stresses ending violence against women
If these statistics don't spur you to take action against violence against women, then one can only wonder what will. Especially for Indigenous women, one day of public awareness is not enough to end violence against women.

But AR and VR experiences are still few and far between, not least because most developers lack the special skills needed to incorporate it into their applications. Note that you will need an AWS Account Number to apply.

This is what AWS is trying to tackle with Sumerian. Supported devices include Google's Daydream, HTC Vive, Facebook's Oculus Rift, and iOS mobile devices.

Amazon Sumerian uses a web-based editor that developers can use to create "professional-quality scenes", and a visual scripting tool to build the logic that controls how the objects and characters in the scenes interact and respond to actions. It also allows anyone to import objects from third-party asset repositories such as Sketchfab or Turbosquid, or create and import their own objects. The Sumerian service includes an object library with 3D models along with assistance for importing assets from FBX and OBJ files.

Borussia Dortmund interested in Man Utd star
Last weekend's 4-1 win over Newcastle again suggested that Man United are likely to be Man City's closest rivals from the title. But the Red Devils boss was not prepared to weigh into the discussion other than to praise his Belgian striker's determination.

Built on Amazon Web Services, the toolkit is meant to help with building experiences like "training simulations, virtual concierge services, enhanced online shopping experiences, [and] virtual house or land tours".

"Customers across industries see the potential of VR and AR technologies for a wide range of uses-from educating and training employees to creating new customer experiences".

Amazon Sumerian, the post notes, "doesn't require you to have 3D graphics or programming experience to build rich, interactive VR and AR scenes", and "provides tools and resources that allows anyone to create and run augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and 3D applications easily". Today, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced a new piece of online software that creators can use for their VR and augmented reality (AR) projects called Amazon Sumerian. The service is priced according to the amount of storage used for 3D assets and traffic volume.
