Amazon today announced that Sumerian, a tool that aims to make creating web-based applications for VR/AR and traditional monitors an easy process, is now available to the general public.
First announced at last year’s AWS re:Invent, Amazon Sumerian touts the ability to easy publish 3D content to any browser that supports WebGL or WebVR graphics rendering, including Daydream, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and iOS mobile devices.
Amazon today released Sumerian to the general public. The company has a pricing structure, although at the AWS Free Tier, you can start building VR/AR and 3D projects for free.
“Upon sign-up, new customers can create up to a 50MB published scene that receives the equivalence of 100 views (5GB) per month, for the first 12 months,” Amazon writes in its Sumerian product site.
Virtual assistants through Polly or Lex, scene hosting, and volume of traffic to your project are paid services once you go outside of the free 12-month period however.
