Augmented Reality software provider Kudan said it is giving 650 free SDK licenses, to the value to USD1 million, to selected developers, with priority given to those with working AR apps and prototypes.
The initiative coincides with the end of the successful three-month long Developer Preview period of the Kudan AR Engine, during which time feedback has been immensely positive.
Kudan invites developers to showcase their apps and designs in order to secure their free license. Developers must have signed up with an existing Bundle ID before December 1, 2015.
New developers are now able to download the full-featured Version 1.0 of the Kudan AR Engine. Kudan is pleased to also announce that downloads will always remain free, with a license key required only for live applications. This novel approach allows unrestricted access to the software and is designed to lower the barrier to entry of a professional AR development kit for academics and indie developers.
