Google's new 'Poly' service makes it easier to build VR and AR appsIt's no secret that one of the biggest issues holding back virtual and augmented reality is the lack of content.

Poly: Browse, discover and download 3D objects and scenesIf you're building for virtual and augmented reality, you need 3D objects for your apps. With Tilt Brush and Blocks, we've made 3D creation easier. Now, we want to enable creators and developers to build on everyone's work. That's why we created Poly: one place to browse, discover and download 3D objects.Google
Google launches Poly, a home for the world's 3D objects built for creatorsAs Google builds platforms like ARCore and Daydream that allow users to step into virtual worlds or put virtual scenes inside their phone's field-of-view, there's a big onus on game developers to craft the content that makes the platforms worth checking out.
Google's Poly is a one-stop shop for AR and VR objectsIt isn't easy to build a virtual reality app, especially when it comes to filling out those immersive worlds. Even a semi-realistic world requires tons of objects, which isn't always practical for a small studio. What to do? Google might have an answer: it just introduced Poly, a library of free 3D objects for augmented and virtual reality apps.
