We are thrilled to announce that Daniel Fernandes has joined RPR as our newest WebAR Developer!

Daniel joins RPR from his previous role as a WebAR and XR consultant working with a worldwide client base to develop AR-led marketing campaigns, sports and entertainment XR applications, and virtual reality web applications.

As a long time contributor to the software community, Daniel brings years of experience in collaborative projects as well as leadership in the WebAR world to the fold- his (personal) development credits include developing NFT-Marker-Creator, a port to use the ARToolKit5 NFT marker generator on the web, thus making it possible to use images as targets in WebAR. Daniel’s dedication to open-source WebAR adoption and accessibility continued with his foundational contributions to the WebARKit project, and helping develop features in the JSARToolKit5 library.

Prior to his time in the private sector, Daniel worked as a researcher in the TEAM Lab at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte for several years where he started his career in XR. While studying the future of virtual technology Daniel ensured his career trajectory kept him on the absolute cutting edge of emergent tech- publishing research papers on Digital Twin web platforms for product visualization using IoT devices and XR technology.

Welcome to the team, Daniel! We’re excited for you to bring your years of experience to RPR’s clients and AR projects.
