Amazon Sumerian is 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, Hosts, and APIs for the design, development, and deployment of scenes. Scenes created using Sumerian are published in a compatible browser which enables a developer to “create once and publish widely.”
