Experimental addon for openFrameworks to use ARCore on Android devices.



This openFrameworks addon implements some of the basic features from the ARCore API to be used in openFrameworks. This addon is not feature complete yet. Currently it only supports the basic camera tracking, rendering the camera image, besides basic anchor support. Even though its not feature complete, it should give a good starting point to work with AR in openFrameworks.

This is not an official Google product.
