The Cimagine solution is the most robust AR technology available today that can superimpose textual or figural information onto the natural environment without the need for any predefined, reference marker. Through a unique combination of internal sensors on mobile devices and high end image processing, Cimagine’s patent-pending 360o Super Reality TM technology, ensures that the AR object is realistically rendered to maintain scale and position.
