Following LensFest, celebrating the entire community, we invite you to create without boundaries!
Submit unique Lenses (not out-of-the-box / no templates lenses). Go at it alone or team up (max team of three), the sky is the limit.
What to Build
Use your creativity and the power of Lens Studio to push the boundaries of augmented reality. Leverage the front or back camera to create novel, delightful, and unique experiences that showcase your skills. As you start to build your Lens, think about how to create it with monetization in mind.
Some ideas and guidance for the Lens
- Use Remote Assets in Lens Cloud creating an experience of up to 33 mb which will push your Lens to the next level
- Leverage the power of our human based capabilities: 3D body & hand tracking, segmentations
- Create multiplayer experiences using Connected Lenses at the same location or remotely
- Use SnapML to recognize the environment and objects and offer relatable experiences that make your Lens smarter
- Think about inputs: Voice, Hands, Screen, what can be used to interact with AR?
- Leverage 3rd Party APIs to get external data with Weather, Air Quality, Sports Results (Tennis, Soccer, Football, Cricket, Basketball), Astrology, Translate, Stock and crypto market data
- Immerse the real world by 3D scanning areas and creating customized located experiences using Custom Landmarker
What to Submit
- Lens Name
- Lens URL: An unlocked URL of your Lens. Your Lens must be public and published!
- Lens ID: A copy of your Lens ID, which can be found by going to My Lenses and selecting the Lens you need the ID from. Select the copy icon and your Lens ID will be copied to your clipboard.
- Lens Preview Video: A 10-second (maximum) video in a Lens preview video that was captured on a phone and does not utilize Lens Studio models/characters. Tag your Lens "LF22"
- OPTIONAL, but recommended: Lens Roadmap - If you were able to monetize this lens, how would you do it? What features would you add? Would you work with brands? Please describe the next 1-3 phases of the development of your lens.
(Be sure to follow the Lens Studio Submission Guidelines before you submit your project on Devpost.)
