Ambient tech goes public for the first time

amBX has released its SDK to the public, opening access to the ambient technology to all.

Previously the SDK was only available on a project-by-project basis, but is now available for free download at developer.ambx.com. The package contains test tools and example applications to help people get up to speed quickly, while a support forum is also available for more in-depth probing.

"The amBX SDK provides developers with everything they need to get quickly up to speed and at no charge,” said Neil MacDonald, CEO of amBX.

“It makes amBX very approachable and this is a major step forward in game development. The whole point of amBX is to immerse the player deeper into the game and the amBX SDK now allows developers to harness and control the most powerful immersion experience available in their games. The SDK makes a rather complex operation very simple at extremely low cost."
