fastar1 Usually when somebody wants to upload content in Augmented Reality (AR) browsers he/she might think that has to learn a new software, new concepts, and a new way of thinking in general (perhaps in the back of his/he mind may think that a painful task like programming is involved and the terror begins). iphone case iphone 8 Well, why not inversing the whole process and fit the process of publishing content to what the user already knows, like a Content Management System (CMS) let ‘s say. iphone 6 cases red Even people that are not familiarized with programming like bankers or military personnel know how to put content in a site through the CMS either from the front-end (web-site) or from the back-end (administrator portal). FastAR promises to upgrade your CMS to an AR-Server that it is connected with the major AR browsers. ted baker case for iphone 8 plus So, whatever you have in your CMS, it is also in the AR browser too. Someone will say “-Ok, but how FastAR knows what to publish from my article in the CMS to the AR browser?, I have several images and I want to select the one that it is going to be AR browser.”- You are right, FastAR doesn’t know the title, the icon, the description, and the weblink that should be published in AR among the vast amount of data in your article. Here is where other components fit to provide a structured storing of similar objects. Some of you might have heard Sobipro, K2, VirtueMart, Woocommerce and others. fastar2 They give structure for your data, e.g. if you want to write an article for a store, you should have to provide data in a form with certain fields, e.g. gold pineapple iphone 7 case name, web-site, telephone, short-description, opening hours, image 1, image 2, etc. So instead of an unstructured article you have a structured object with certain fields. Another curious person might ask “How to publish my collection of insects into AR? Do the aforementioned components have fields for insects’ wingspan and mating seasons?” –Well, no, but they offer you the option to make a new section with a name let’s say “My insects inventory” and create the fields that you mention. When you finish, FastAR automatically inserts your section in a list of content sources for AR exporting (AR Exporters), but it does not know if you wish to export in AR the wingspan or the mating-season of your insects. You should provide them by editing your AR Exporter. iphone 8 plus case with window Someone will say, “Is that all?” –No, there is one step more, but do not afraid it is not programming involved. You should register to the AR Vendor where the pipeline of your CMS should be connected to the pipeline of the AR browser. phone case iphone 8 personalised FastAR automatically provides you the url link to copy-paste it to the AR Vendors site, so as to close the pipeline. So that’s the whole idea. Well, we cannot yet support every CMS and structure imposing component on earth. We can’t also force AR Vendors to provide through API’s and for free all of their goodies.
