No matter what your virtual or augmented reality app involves, one thing it's going to require is 3D object models. The app was built with VR and phone-based AR platforms in mind. Just like Microsoft's Remix3d, users can find a library of 3D content and users can remix the 3D object using Google's VR apps like Tilt Brush and Blocks.

Google's 3D object sharing platform isn't a barren land for everyday users; they can browse everything from a rocket ship to an ice-cream cone and create handsome GIFs out them which can be used elsewhere.

With Poly, Google is laying good groundwork for the VR and AR development ecosystem and it's this, more than anything, that will give the platforms the best chance of long-term success. Poly is a searchable database of 3D objects and scenes for developers to use in their apps.


In addition to being a great place for developers to find assets, anyone can use Poly to view 3D objects in a mobile or desktop browser.

Search through "thousands" of free objects - everything from a rocket ship to a sandcastle, piano, and pirate. Any edits - or remixes - are automatically republished with the relevant credits and links added. If you find what you're looking for, you can view it in 3D and download it to use in your app. Found a robot you like, but need it with four arms instead of two? It's a system that will be welcomed by developers looking to create AR and VR games and apps, as it simplifies the creation process massively. Once you discover something you like, you can create a shareable GIF or view it in VR using Cardboard or Daydream View.
