Epic’s Unreal Engine is mainly used to create video games, but now it can also be used to create augmented reality apps, thanks to Adam Horvath and his plugin for Unreal Engine 4.

Adam’s Unreal4AR is based on the open source augmented reality SDK ARToolKit. It works with Windows, OS X, iOS and Android devices. It uses markers like most AR apps but it also supports Natural Feature Tracking (NFT), which means any image can be turned into a marker. Imagine making card art come alive, or hiding the marker within the display surface’s design. The video below shows the Unreal Engine tutorial cinematic Matinee playing on a desk:

Here’s another example, a color preview app for a motorcycle:

Here’s the NFT support at work:

Its responsiveness is almost too good to be true. You can buy Unreal4AR for $99 to $249(USD), but you can also download its demo for free. Check out Adam’s post in the Unreal Engine forum for more on the plugin.
