Face Tracking with AR Foundation

Reserve Your Spot

You will learn how to create your own Snapchat/Instagram-like AR face filter.

AR Foundation is a set of tools from Unity that allows you to build Augmented Reality apps in a multi-platform way. That means by building with AR Foundation you can easily deploy your AR app to an android phone with ARCore or to an iPhone with ARKit.

There are many exciting features available in AR Foundation, such as object tracking, plane detection and image tracking.

In this free workshop, Circuit Stream instructor Nakisa Donnelly will show you how you can use face tracking to detect emotion and create your own Snapchat-Like AR face filter.

During the workshop, we'll share:

  • An introduction and overview of Unity
  • An overview AR Foundation and Face Tracking
  • How to use Face Tracking in your application
  • Answers to your questions about developing AR applications

At the end of the workshop, you'll have:

  • A better understanding of AR Foundation and face tracking
  • Practical knowledge of how to get face tracking up and running in your applications
  • A reference for how to build your own SnapChat-Like AR face filter

Workshop prerequisites:

  • No computer or device necessary
  • Prior experience with Unity is not required, but will make it easier to follow along
  • Interest in building Augmented Reality applications
