You've heard of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and perhaps even Mixed Reality. The easiest way to think of it is if you have to wear a headset, then you are using Virtual Reality. If you are wearing glasses where you can see through them, then it is Mixed Reality. And if you are using a smartphone or a tablet device, then it is Augmented Reality.
To use Augmented Reality on a smartphone or tablet, you download our apps, point your camera at one of our products, and instantly you see a magical scene take place directly on your device as if it was in the real world! You can move your camera around and the scene will track with it. You are in control of how you want to explore!
