AWS announces the General Availability of Amazon Sumerian, a managed service that allows developers to create and publish augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and 3D applications quickly and easily without requiring any specialized programming or 3D graphics expertise.

Amazon Sumerian provides an integrated development environment (IDE), editor, asset library, APIs, and virtual characters, called Sumerian Hosts, for the design, development, and deployment of applications. Apps created using Sumerian are published in a compatible browser which enables a developer to “create once and publish widely.” Scenes can be viewed on compatible VR headsets (HTC Vive, HTC Vive Pro, and Oculus Rift), AR compatible iOS and Android mobile devices, laptops, and digital signage.

For a complete list of regions where Amazon Sumerian is offered, please see the AWS Regions table. To get started, visit the Amazon Sumerian website and review our Tutorials and Documentation pages.
