Oregon Patent of the Month – August 2022

Founded in 2014, YOUAR, Inc. is the only independent Augmented Reality (AR) Cloud company in the world. 

The founders had explored the AR world and found it lacking, limited by low-poly models, non-contextual experiences, and technical walled gardens. These limitations showed that the truly endless possibilities of AR were stifled by current technology. To rectify this, the artists and engineers who have developed and expanded YOUAR have dedicated their expertise to build a truly immersive AR experience. The result? An AR Cloud SDK – or software development kit – to give developers the essential tools needed to make persistent AR experiences.

As a result of this extensive innovation and the years of development, the company has recently been awarded a patent for their AR platform. This platform supports the concurrent operation of multiple AR applications including those developed by third-party developers. These third party developers connect with the platform through an API, integrating features into the overall user experience of their applications. This means the platform can reliably support and present multiple sources of AR layers and visuals at the same time while effectively resolving any spatial conflicts. The platform utilizes a proprietary Adaptive Anchor Network to match trillions of pieces of AR content to billions of locations in the physical world. With precision 6 Degrees of Freedom spatial accuracy, content can be placed anywhere in the world and optimized for mobile device use.
