Three friends and a bold new vision
In August 2018, three friends – Eugène Kuipers, Rens Lensvelt and Dennis de Laat – founded Fectar, a first Content Management System focused on implementing Augmented Reality built with Microsoft technologies. Rens, after developing one presentation after another, saw the potential of new platforms for smartphones. And he decided to write a script to view AR with his own 4 years old ordinary smartphone. He didn’t know it then, but he had just written Fectar’s first code.
Hard work with ups and downs
It wasn’t easy, and many thought we were crazy for trying, but one year later, the team launched the first iteration of Fectar’s digital experience platform. The platform created a incredible Augmented and Virtual Reality experiences for each app visitor. The foundation was laid for Fectar Studio of today.
Strong growth in AR and VR
In 2020, the AR market grew further and further, up to 1.4 billion smartphone. The development of both ARCore and ARKit increased every month. And with new devices for Virtual Reality, new products entered the market almost weekly, with lower prices and more features.
To learn AR & VR you need a tool
"Well, if we started," Pippi said. "First of all, I would like to buy a piano."
"Yes, but Pippi", Tommy said, "you can not play the piano anyway?"
"How can I know that if I have never tried it", Pippi replied. "I have never had a piano to try. And let me tell you, Tommy, playing piano without piano, that takes a lot of effort to learn. "
