The demo was introduced today in San Jose by WingNutAR creative director Alasdair Coull, formerly head of R&D at Weta Digital, and featured a sci-fi-based aerial attack at a remote space outpost. It was used to show off Apple’s new AR tool ARKit.
Jackson was not at the conference; he’s back in New Zealand working on his next pic Mortal Engines. He and co-founder Fran Walsh formed the AR unit more than a year ago and have since been developing software, conducting R&D, and beginning to create content.
The plan is for WingNutAR to have its first commercial AR content available in Apple’s app store by late 2017.
