Google builds 3D objects repository for developers

Google launches Poly, a home for the world's 3D objects built for creators

Supposedly, the new platform is meant to offer an art library to people who are keen to build several VR development apps with Google's ARCore and Apple's ARKit. Google's new Poly platform lets you find, view, and download free AR and VR objects and scenes. One can also use the Mixed Reality Viewer app to place the uploaded object in real world virtually.

The model is a bit like Flickr, but for VR and AR developers rather than photographers. Numerous assets available today have been created by Google.

Unsurprisingly, there are plenty of applications for VR objects in the iOS and Play Store. Poly will work seamlessly with Google's Tilt Brush (painting) and Blocks (sculpting) apps, and will aim to create of a thriving community of developers willing to share their models for reworking and remixing. "It's fully integrated with Tilt Brush and Blocks, and it also allows direct OBJ file upload, so there's lots to discover and use". Click "like" to import a remixable object into Tilt Brush or Blocks and make changes; Poly will automatically credit and link to the original creation when you publish your remix. But making it easier to create for AR and VR translates to more and better AR apps for you to choose from on your phone. "This open library can really boost development of wonderful app games".

Poly is eerily similar to a recent Microsoft initiative called Remix3D which can be found, in part, in the most recent Windows 10 Fall Creators Update as well on the web where it offers a social media component where users can go to view, download and engage with 3D objects.

Besides developers, anyone can use Poly to view 3D objects in a mobile or desktop browser or in VR using Cardboard or Daydream View.
