  • examples/contact-sharing-in-ar.html [view source] : It shows how to display informations on a per-marker basis. There is a database which contains the informations. When the proper marker is recognized, the info specific to this marker is displayed. In this example, we provide a contact sharing webapp. Everybody got his own marker. Suppose alice wears a specific marker. Bob load the apps on his mobile, and will see alice contact information when he point it to alice.

How To Use It


It recognizes the marker in a video stream. It is then positioned in 3d. You just have to apply that to your own three.js meshes.


It handles the video grabbing. It will take the environment camera if it is available. It provides a nice see-through effect.
