IN2AR Natural Feature Tracking With Adobe Flash
Any augmented reality demo in my opinion is only as good as the 3D model that it displays. Users don’t care about the underlying AR engine or how long it took the developer to write. Think about it. How much do you care about the compiler used to create your favourite game? It’s the eye candy that gets all the glory.
That said, developers do care about the tools and want rich powerful solutions that will take care of the hard work in creating AR applications. Recently there has been a trend with developers looking to move beyond using markers and use Flash based engines that provide natural feature tracking. There are a couple of tools available that offer NFT but the most recent that has crossed my path is the IN2AR augmented reality engine for Adobe Flash.

IN2AR is an SDK and engine for Flash developers with both a free commercial model (free as long as the IN2AR logo is displayed) or a very reasonable price if you want to go down the full commercial route and remove the logo.
