August 19, 2022 – Geenee AR, an augmented reality (AR) technology company and provider of a WebAR publishing platform for Web3 Creators, has recently announced that its WebAR platform, which offers full-body tracking for web browser-based AR experiences, is now free to use for hobbyists & independent developers building non-commercial WebAR projects.
“We believe that AR is a medium for creativity, immersiveness and fun,” said Geenee AR SVP of Engineering, Evgeny Peshkov. “We want to provide accessible and efficient tools for everyone who wants to join us in this exciting journey.”
Geenee’s WebAR technology powers full-body tracking directly from a web browser, meaning there is no need for users to download an app in order to enjoy AR experiences. The platform is also accessible on any connected device.
Popular applications for body tracking include virtual try-on, gesture-controlled UI, and digital dance partners that mimic body movements. Geenee’s WebAR SDK is highly flexible and can be used with any rendering engine or UI framework, according to the company. Additionally, it’s platform is extensible and includes a number of useful plugins providing out-of-the-box solutions for many use cases, enabling the creation of immersiveWebAR experiences within minutes.
For the first time, AR developers can gain access to Geenee’s full-body & face tracking SDK directly from the WebAR Builder. Previously, the SDK was only available to agency & brand partners for commercial use, and had to be accessed manually. Now the SDK is available for everyone. Anyone interested in creating a project can sign up for a free Geenee AR account, generate a token, and instantly start creating. Access tokens are generated on a per-project basis and users can manage all of their projects in one place, directly from the Geenee WebAR Builder dashboard. Geenee’s documentation page can be viewed here.
In addition to self-serve access to its SDK, Geenee has also rolled out some pricing updates. The Geenee WebAR Builder is now completely free to use for individual creators and developers. The company’s “hobbyists” plan offers free access to non-commercial use of the WebAR Builder, covering up to 500 cumulative views/month across projects. Additionally, agencies can access the platform for USD $99/month for non-commercial use. This allows them to create projects with ease for an upcoming client pitch in order to sell through a campaign at the commercial level. For more details on pricing, click here.
