The Argon4 AR Web Browser
This software was created as part of a research project at the Augmented Environments Lab at Georgia Tech. To support our research, we request that if you make use of this software, you let us know how you used it by sending mail to Blair MacIntyre (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you would like to help improve Argon4 and argon.js, you can see our current and future Roadmap.

Setting up Vuforia
You'll need to build argon-app with your own Vuforia license key to enable the video background and target tracking.

You will not be able to decrypt Argon4 Vuforia license key files created with our Vuforia PGP Encryptor, since we do not include the PGP key necessary for decrypting those files here. When you build with your own Vuforia key, it is always used, and encypted PGP keys are ignored.
