  1. Seems good. But I think I’ll need to see videos and examples to make full judgment.
    Specifically also, what sort of private/public user interaction is possible on it. Can users leave public messages? Or just between friends?

  2. […] “mobile augmented reality platforms” in a matter of weeks (see press releases here and here).  And both companies, it seems, will deploy much more sophisticated AR rendering and tracking […]

  3. Thanks thanks thanks! I was looking for something along lines of this for hours and couldn’t find it.
