Jeeliz for augmented reality

ARCore and ARKit The augmented reality frameworks ARCore and ARKit, released respectively by Google and Apple, have popularized the use of augmented reality. They rely on the computing power and the 3D scanning capabilities of latest high end mobile devices to provide a smooth experience. The main technological breakthrough is their SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) algorithms which reconstructs the 3D environment and concomitantly computes the position and orientation of the device. They prepare the Read more…

Why WebML and Face Detection API will be rejected

Web programming is getting closer and closer to native programming. This is due to the performance increase of JavaScript engines and to the new functionalities brought by new APIs. There are among others : WebSockets for real time data transfer, MediaStream API to get the webcam video stream and to send it in peer to peer, WebGL to use the GPU for rendering or computing, WebAudio to use advanced audio features. Web programming has many Read more…
