A rich ecosystem of open-source tools and models to support research

The Project Aria program was set up to help researchers explore the future, responsibly.

Building openly and collaboratively not only helps researchers with access to Project Aria glasses, but also helps bring out the best outcomes for people. By providing open source tools, we hope to provide opportunities to create a diverse community in support of the betterment of everyone.
