"Amazon Sumerian also makes it easy to build scenes where rich, natural interactions between objects, characters, and users occur through the use of AWS services such as Amazon Lex, Amazon Polly, AWS Lambda, AWS IoT, and Amazon DynamoDB". In any case, users of the toolkit can create animated characters that interact with the player or customer verbally.
Amazon has tried to keep Sumerian simple so that developers new to building the 3D experience do not face issues while creating the immersive content. Today, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced a new piece of online software that creators can use for their VR and augmented reality (AR) projects called Amazon Sumerian. Hardware including the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and iOS devices support the content created with Sumerian.

Sumerian allows developers to design VR, AR, and 3D environments using drag and drop as well as a library of pre-built objects and templates with pre-populated scenes.
The editor allows users to import 3D objects into scenes and includes features such as scripting, animation, and integration with Amazon's cloud services.
Sumerian lets developers build applications without requiring any specialised programming or 3D graphics expertise, and can be accessed from a web browser. As more developers look to support AR and VR, and platform owners continue to expand what devices can do, Sumerian could help make AWS a key home for developing the applications of the future.
