WebAR – The Next Big Thing with Fast Deployment Time
People have started looking seriously into WebAR; it may not have the power of full AR but it still has plenty of potential for experimental design that can enthrall your users (check out our cool projects for a fun example). Here’s what you need to know about it.
This would be a fascinating development because it would bring the AR experience to smartphone users everywhere and would be available via regular internet browsers as well. Even though web AR is in its early years, stead advancements are being made to make it a reality. Let’s take a closer look at webAR since it is sure to become a big hit as the technology develops!
What is WebAR?
WebAR refers to Augmented Reality experiences that are accessed through a web browser rather than an app. This means all you need is your smartphone or tablet and an internet connection, without having to download an app directly onto your phone.

There are many benefits to Web AR, such as:
- Takes up less memory since you don’t have to download an app
- Fast deployment time with fewer costs
- Can be run on pretty much any browser
- Simple to implement cross-platform
We have just seen some the different and exciting ways web AR can be implemented, but what is just as impressive is that it is a win-win for everybody. For developers, this technology offers faster deployment times and fewer costs. For consumers, one of the main benefits is the accessibility. Everybody loves AR, and users everywhere will be able to enjoy it regardless of the device they have. Furthermore, it can be used for all kinds of purposes to immerse the user in the content. While this could be for both commercial or educational purposes, the most important thing is that it opens up a lot of opportunities.
