How to learn AR/VR App Development without Coding
Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality have become the mainstream in the tech world. Especially, since PokemonGo showed us AR’s ability to enhance the gaming experience, and Oculus showed us how headsets could be transformed into something limitless. But today, one no longer needs to learn the complicated language of Java, C#, Python or even C++ to get into this pioneering industry.
This technology allows humans to actually feel the ‘virtual world’ around them through interactive designs and gestures. Market stats state that the AR/VR industry is rapidly expanding into various sectors and industrial applications. According to Mckinsey’s report, the AR and VR market is expected to reach $5 trillion worldwide by the year 2030.
The tech giants like Apple, Google, Meta, and Microsoft, who have been revolutionising the world with their innovations are now into releasing AR/VR headsets. Technology has been continually progressing from bulky desktops to sleek smartphones and now it’s the onset of the XR era. With time and need more XR users shall proliferate throughout the globe.
Many countries like the USA, China, UAE and France have already adopted AR/VR in various fields, right from education institutes to governing bodies. Further, countries like China have planned to import millions of AR/VR headsets as a development strategy for their nation.

AR/VR finds manifold pragmatic use cases in almost each and every sector. Right from virtual gaming to defence training, education to healthcare and commerce to infrastructure, there is no field left out. All businesses are now turning towards AR/VR to satiate their needs. So, there is a massive demand for AR/VR Developers globally, which shall accelerate further. With proper knowledge and training, India can capture 20% of the global AR/VR market and demand for developers, which shall prove to be a super boost to the country’s economy. AICTE also encourages universities to conduct AR/VR courses to upskill undergrad students.
Now, let’s bust a big myth. Many of us think that only a tech guy can learn and develop content in Augmented and Virtual Reality. No! But the fact is, anyone who can operate a computer can learn AR/VR Development. An elementary school teacher can create AR/VR content to simplify learning for his students, and even a fashion designer can create an app to exhibit his creations in AR/VR.

HOW TO LEARN?
Augmented and Virtual Reality is entirely based on 3D modelling. All the content we experience in AR/VR is mostly three-dimensional. So the process begins with developing 3D models. 3D models can be developed using basic interfaces like TinkerCAD to advanced software like Blender or Maya. One can either use readymade 3D assets available online or can build 3D models using the tools provided by the software. Drag-and-drop-based software like Lens Studio and MetaSpark allows a user to design AR filters for social media sites like Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat.
Game engines like Unity3D and Unreal Engine help in the complete development process of AR/VR applications. One can choose 3D models, environments and other assets from the asset store or outsource the ones required. Visual effects and animations can be added further. After creating the 3D space, the project can be converted into an AR or VR application using the built-in plugins and can be deployed to devices. Builds are available for different platforms like iOS, Android, Playbox, Oculus, HTC Vive etc. All of this can be achieved without coding at all.
AR can be experienced right on a smartphone but VR experience requires high-end gadgets like Oculus, Meta Quest or HTC Vive. The most basic version of which could cost up to 50,000Rs. There are various online courses available for AR/VR App Development which could cost in lakhs.
TechXR, a startup with promising solutions for Augmented and Virtual Reality has devised India’s most affordable XR controller which just costs 5% of the available alternatives.
The XR controller – SenseXR provides six degrees of freedom interaction in Augmented and Virtual Reality. What you need is all a smartphone, a simple VR box and a SenseXR to experience a high-quality virtual, immersive and interactive experience. SenseXR not only enables virtual interaction but also enables 3D content creation in AR/VR.
DoT, Govt of India has awarded the startup with the Top 12 Innovations Award for their path-breaking innovation, which could prove to be the key to the metaverse for the common man of India. YourStory Media has also featured TechXR in Tech30 – Most Promising Top 30 tech Startups of India for their frugal innovation. TechXR is also upcoming with XR Blocks which is an ultra-intuitive drag and drop based game engine which enables XR content creation for junior learners from the age of 5-19. With TechXR’s AR/VR App Development course in collab with i-Hub IIT Roorkee, one can learn the complete process of AR/VR app development without the need for expensive XR devices.
