YouTube Shorts: Why We Create: Join The Conversation!

Lightship VPS at Lightship Summit | Niantic

When our community of players goes out into the world, it helps us map out the places that cars and satellites can not. That’s what makes our 3D global map so unique. It’s built with the stories of thousands of explorers. #LightshipSummit

Niantic Lightship Platform | Global Launch

Watch the global launch of the Lightship Platform. We open the vault of tech that powers games like Pokemon Go, Pikmin Bloom, and Ingress. The first set of Niantic Lightship ARDK tools are available at https://lightship.dev/

What’s in the toolkit? Everything you need to build your own AR experience.

🗺️ MAPPING: Create a dynamic, detailed 3D map of the environment
✅ Quickly create a mesh map of a user’s environment
✅ Allow virtual objects to interact naturally with the surfaces and topography around the user

🔍 UNDERSTANDING: tools to help you identify the real-world environment for adaptive AR:
✅ Semantic segmentation identifies objects in the environment like ground, sky, water, buildings, and more — allowing virtual objects to move and interact realistically.

👨‍👩‍👦‍👦 SHARING: tools for multi-player AR gameplay:
✅ Support up to 5 players, concurrently
✅ Speedy networking
✅ Lightweight gaming functions like session-persistent storage
