Qualcomm is looking to help take Augmented Reality to the next level by releasing an augmented reality software development kit for Android phones, along with a $200,000 challenge for the best Android AR apps.
Qualcomm is on a mission to help developers build fun, useful, exciting AR apps. That is why we’re planning the first ever Augmented Reality Developer Challenge with $200,000 in total prize money.
Games, educational apps, media & marketing tools, instructional manuals – You’re only limited by the scope of your imagination (though you must of course use the Qualcomm AR SDK to build the app).
The Challenge will commence in the Fall of 2010, when the AR SDK is made available for public download.
- First Place – US $125,000
- Second Place – US $50,000
- Third Place – US $25,000
