Enklu Player is Open Source!
Updated: Jun 6, 2019
We believe success means inspiring exceptional outcomes in-and-around our organization, so we’re providing students and faculty from universities like USC free non-commercial licenses to the Enklu enterprise platform. Enklu is also open-sourcing the player, and any contributor who submits a successful pull request will receive a free enterprise license for a full year ($2,750 retail value).
Our CTO, Benjamin Jordan, invites all problem solvers, developers, engineers, and those passionate and curious about what is possible with augmented reality, to join us on this adventure. "This is a bit of a dream for us. AR is a tricksy medium that’s not yet well understood, but we’re pretty proud of our little creation. We want you all to see it, but more than that: we want you to be a part of it. Why just watch us when you can climb aboard too?"
We firmly believe that to create and provide the best product we can offer, we need to collaborate with the community. Enklu will always strive to strengthen community ties and provide a platform and foundation for our community to help us advance this amazing technology. Inclusivity is one of our core values, for both users and creators.
The Enklu Player is a program that runs real-time multiplayer interactive AR experiences. It runs on HoloLens, iOS, Android, and the web. It is part of the more expansive Enklu ecosystem, which provides tools and services for creating and distributing AR experiences. Create an account to take advantage of everything that we have to offer, or feel free to pick and choose pieces to use in your own application. We also have other resources like Unity libraries for logging, asynchronous operations, http, debug rendering, messaging, or gradle build tools. We’re serious about open source software, and we hope you’ll join the community and accompany us on this journey.
Enklu was founded in 2016 by games industry and web veterans who set out to prove that augmented reality content could express the best in quality, accessibility, and engagement. Our mission is to empower storytellers to blur the lines between physical and digital reality with effective, intuitive technology. We provide venues with a "just works" solution for deploying and operating compelling first person narratives in AR headsets with stunning visuals and captivating interactivity. We created the first wave of immersive AR experiences for brands like Mercedes-Benz, and we recently launched our flagship installation "The Unreal Garden" in partnership with Onedome in the heart of San Francisco. We are ready to expand to new venues in 2019.
