develop 100 38 CASTAR


THE BRAINCHILD OF former Valve hardware engineer Jeri Ellsworth and fellow ex-Valve employee Rick Johnson, CastAR combines both augmented and virtual reality technology. The glasses display holographic 3D games and game elements as if they were being projected into the real world. So instead of seeing a blank table – covered by the special retro-reflective pad – you see a Star Wars-style chess set with animated creatures that you control with figurines or a wand-like controller. The images are transmitted by a Windows or Android device, and are rendered in 720p HD.

YEBIS 2 IS a post-processing effects tool built by Japanese firm Silicon Studio.


The tech features customisable glare effects, including a high dynamic range rendering pipeline in which developers can adjust visuals in real-time. Other features include depth of field effects, motion blur, anti-aliasing and an architecture that supports DirectX 11. The tech can be used on PS4, Xbox One, PC and mobile. It has been showcased in a plethora of games and tech demos, such as Square Enix’s Agni’s Philosophy demo, the Final Fantasy XV E3 trailer and MotoGP 14.
