Earlier this summer, we launched the MadeWith Site, an expansion of the Looking Glass Library, which was previously our sole distribution platform for Looking Glass compatible applications. While (almost) all the content distributed via the Library were self-contained downloadable applications (made with our HoloPlay Unity SDK), the newly minted MadeWith Site opened up the possibility of sharing 3D photographs (in the form of quilts) as well as browser-based HoloPlay.js applications like Oakland-based artist Cabbibo's Looking Gooey.
What got us really excited about the MadeWith launch is that for the first time, Looking Glass creators from around the world now have the ability to create and submit 3D images (what we call quilts), HoloPlay.js creations and applications of their own.
Yes! All Looking Glass creators now have the ability to submit their own holographic apps and media to our MadeWith Site and/or Library.
Recently, we made the MadeWith Site fully compatible with the Looking Glass Library. Meaning, all apps submitted to the Library will also be easily searched and launched into your Looking Glass directly from the browser.
Whether it's a 3D image of your cat, a holographic screen capture, or a real-time 3D audio visualizer, you'll easily spend hours browsing through the different creations made by Looking Glass users around the world.
