Projects > Yahoo! Immersive SDK

Yahoo Immersive is the cross-platform suite enabling partners and internal teams to create, distribute, and monetize XR content with an authoring tool; a content library, and display environment SDKs for iOS, Android, and mobile web. Through a direct integration with Yahoo’s ad stack and publishing pipeline, branded content can be deployed across articles, search, and affiliate links in partner properties like Yahoo! Mail, Yahoo! News, Yahoo! Finance, Huffington Post, TechCrunch, AutoBlog, and even the NFL’s in-stadium app at Super Bowl LIV.

I worked on the Immersive SDK for three years as iOS developer focusing on ARKit & SceneKit. Created an iOS Swift wrapper for Google's Filament rendering engine because Apple's SceneKit engine was too bug-ridden. Also built a custom post-processing pipeline because SceneKit's pipeline fell short. This pipeline was used to create visual effects and LiDAR-based object occlusion.
