Augmented Reality Made Easy!

One of the largest barriers to the widespread adoption of Augmented Reality (AR) has been the need for a skilled developer to create applications that can display AR experiences. With the BUNDLAR Platform, anybody, anywhere can create, edit, and deploy AR experiences whenever they want, instantly, and on a global scale.

The Platform also solves the problem of updates and repeatability. The market is full of one-off solutions, but BUNDLAR users can edit their AR experiences after their initial deployment, as well. Our technology also ensures our AR experiences are strong, stable, and reliable by ‘bundling’ many AR experiences in the cloud then downloaded on a user’s device, allowing a user to engage with many related AR experiences without constantly needing to connect to the cloud or rely on strong internet connection.

The BUNDLAR Mission

To provide a scalable self-serve augmented reality (AR) Platform that enables businesses and institutions to create, edit, and deploy AR experiences instantly and on a global scale to their employees, customers, students, and vendors.
