Best Creator & Authoring Tool: ZapWorks 

 

We were very excited to win Best Creator & Authoring Tool for ZapWorks (for the second time) this year. Following the launch of the new and improved ZapWorks Designer and other exciting updates designed to provide ultimate creative flexibility when building and distributing AR with next-gen tools for creators. 


Shawn Frayne, CEO of Looking Glass Factory mentioned: 

 


“I’m so honoured to be presenting the award for best creator tool. We’re 3D creators at our company…and the tool makers that make tools for us really are the people that we bow down to, because we wouldn’t be able to do anything without them.”

Best Developer Tool: ZapWorks | Universal AR SDKs 

 

Winning the Best Developer Tool award was also a fantastic achievement for us, over the past couple of years our teams have been working to add and improve our Universal AR SDKs making Zappar’s best-in-class image, curved, face and world tracking (SLAM) available for a wide variety of platforms and languages, including Unity, Three.js, Babylon.js, PlayCanvas, React + three.js and JavaScript. Ensuring our users have access to the most complete set of AR SDKs on the market.

 

Along with many exciting partnerships and new projects announced by our talented team these awards were the icing on the cake to a truly awesome AWE and we are pleased to say we’ve got more exciting developments on the way to make our award winning tools even more powerful, scalable, efficient and effective for all our partners.
