It permits you to accurately position your IPAD a pair of in 3D area and also the overlapping of things in point of fact with no known markers or visual type, as needed by alternative solutions
In easy terms – The technology makes the important world round the scene of interactive games, 3D games.
That said, 13thLab has bigger ambitions of being called a manufacturer of cold application. The launch aims build a platform for developing 3D games and make their technology accessible to alternative developers.
