The Wikitude AR platform goes through regular quality assurance tests, and maintenance and development processes to ensure you have access to the level of quality you need to create high-performing augmented reality experiences.
SDK 8.10 contains all the latest platform maintenance and stability improvements; brings our optimized Epson Moverio AR SDK up to date; and includes the new, highly requested, Flutter sample app.
SDK 8.10 support for BT-300 and BT-350 Epson Moverio smart glasses
Starting off with the development that many of you have been waiting for: updated Epson Moverio Wikitude AR SDK.
The Epson Moverio devices are used by enterprises and consumers worldwide to deliver hands-free augmented reality experiences. Wikitude SDK 8.10 offers a fully optimized AR SDK for Moverio BT-300 and BT-350 smart glasses.
The Wikitude AR platform is adapted to make the best out of the unique features of both devices, ensuring optimal performance in a variety of environments and use cases. Among these customizations are:
- Intel SSE optimization: providing best processing power and performance for both devices;
- Optimization for stereoscopic view: enabling full 3D see-through (side-by-side view) support of Moverio smart glasses;

Sample app for Flutter. Another request from our awesome AR community
Wikitude was the very first AR platform to offer official support for Flutter. For those of you who are unfamiliar with it, Flutter is an open-source mobile application UI development framework toolkit created by Google. It is used to develop natively-compiled applications for iOS and Android from a single codebase.
The Wikitude documentation, with SDK 8.10, introduces a new Flutter sample app to help you add augmented reality technology to your projects.
AR SDK Performance and Stability Enhancements
The Wikitude SDK is regularly inspected by our quality assurance team and optimized by our technical team so you can have access to high-performing tools that are always up to date.
As updates are frequent – and ideal for app maintenance and device compatibility reasons, we recommend choosing our subscription license, which includes one year of SDK update releases.
