Augmented Reality in Flash Now Commercially Available

Mark Billinghurst just shared with me the good news: ARToolworks announces commercial availability of FLARToolKit. He explains:

Basically it means that companies can now get commercial licenses to FLARToolKit and build flash based Augmented reality websites without having to release their source code as required by the GPL license.

Saqoosha (Tomohiko Koyama) was the first to marry AR with flash as open source – a major step in simplifying AR apps on a PC. Now ARToolworks CTO, Philip Lamb, is taking it to a commercial level.

The code is available at the Spark Project site.

To get your creative juices going, here’s a reminder of the kind of things this baby can deliver:

  1. I think it’s impossible for ARToolworks to give any license for FLARToolKit, because it was created by Saqoosha, not them?

    The only way they would be able to give licenses for FLARToolKit is to give Saqoosha some another license that would enable him to give a right for commercial distribution of FLARToolKit back to them.

  2. Yes it is possible for ARToolworks to offer a commercial license.

    Saqoosha negotiated with ARToolworks and assigned the commercial rights for FLARToolKit over to us.
