What Is Amazon Sumerian?

Amazon Sumerian is a set of browser-based tools for creating high-quality virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and 3D applications easily without requiring any programming or 3D graphics expertise. With Sumerian, you can construct an interactive 3D scene without any programming experience, test it in the browser, and publish it as a website that is immediately available to users.

Use the Sumerian library of assets or bring your own. Sumerian also has a library of primitive shapes, 3D models, hosts, textures, and scripts.


New to 3D, VR, animation, and scripting? The Sumerian community website has a ton of helpful tutorials for every level of experience.

The Sumerian 3D engine provides a library for advanced scripting with JavaScript but you don't have to be a programmer to create interactive AR, VR, or 3D! Use the built-in state machine to animate objects and respond to user input like clicks and movement.

When you're ready to share your work with the world, you can publish it directly to Amazon CloudFront as a website. For scenes created for Virtual Reality, scenes can be viewed with a WebVR or WebXR-compatible browser. Experiences can be viewed on your desktop, mobile devices, and major VR headsets. Note that Augmented Reality (AR) support remains unchanged, as WebXR support for AR is not yet finalized.
