While painting in augmented reality is not a groundbreaking pursuit, the ability for Magic Leap One, iPhone and iPad, and Android users to collaborate remotely on virtual artwork would be.

That is what Across Realities is aiming to do with Spatiate, an app that launched on Thursday through Magic Leap World for $9.99. And soon, the app will also be made available on iOS and Android.

In its basic function of art creation, the app operates similarly to the myriad of ARKit apps, Google’s cross-platform Just a Line, or the AR painting tool on Facebook.

However, due to its ability to connect online users in the same virtual environment, Spatiate also acts as a rudimentary AR telepresence tool as well. In addition to collaborating remotely, the 3D models produced within Spatiate sessions can be exported and published to content platforms like Sketchfab.

“Spatiate is an art creation tool, much like a crayon or a paintbrush, with the world as the canvas. It is an outlet for making freeform art within mixed reality and allows for endless experimentation of ideas. We love seeing what people are coming up with as they share their art online,” said Kacey Weiniger, chief marketing officer for Across Realities, via a Magic Leap blog post. “As a communication tool, people can use Spatiate to collaborate and rapidly convey their ideas. In fact, we used these features to design the UX inside the app itself and have been holding our team meetings in there ever since.”
