Established in Italy, Pikkart is a start-up that has developed an SDK packed with innovative technologies to help grow your business using augmented reality (AR). Pikkart uses the IBM Cloud to manage its applications all around the world.
The Pikkart Augmented Reality SDK includes advanced functionalities of image recognition (both local on cloud-based), geo-augmented markers and a dedicated cloud-based CMS, but the most innovative (and patented) feature in the Pikkart SDK is the AR-LOGO technology.
Pikkart AR-LOGO allows the association of different AR experiences to the same image. This is possible by applying micro-variations to images that are invisible to the human eyes (using what is known as “printable steganography”) but fully recognizable by the Pikkart AR SDK. This can be used with every kind of printer and printing technology.
Unity3D and Xamarin plugins are also available for the Pikkart AR SDK.
To get started, all you just need to do is download the Pikkart AR SDK, install it, and follow the tutorials for Android, iOS and Unity 3D. The Unity 3D and Xamarin plugins — along with the marker management and Cloud Recognition Service — are included in the free trial.
