Advice about vuforia eclipse or vuforia unity 3D?

what platform you advise me to use between eclipse and Unity3D?

The answer to this question is very subjective and may depend on a variety of factors; a few elements to consider:

  • the Android + Eclipse/Java solution can be a good one if you are already familiar with Java + Android SDK + Eclipse programming (in general)
  • the Unity solution requires some familiarity with the Unity engine and Editor and also with C# programming (as the Vuforia Unity Extension API is written in C#)
  • Unity provides many "game-oriented" high-level functionalities, such as Physics, Collision detection, animations and 3D models loading in various formats (OBJ, FBX,...) and many advanced rendering techniques,  which can make your app development faster, particularly if you are targeting a game-like type of application
  • Unity also has the advantage of being cross-platform, meaning that you could deploy your App to iOS too (instead of limiting it to Android)
