In this deep-dive session, go behind the scenes of WebAR collaboration project between spring_HEADGEAR for WELT am Sonntag 29.03.2020 edition – Travel Section p. 62 – Experience California on a virtual journey

In these days, where physical traveling unfortunately is not possible, readers are invited to virtually visit some of the most beautiful places in California. The idea is that users who read the article, create an AR portal in their personal environment, step through it, and find themselves immersed within the world of the article (360° video) all using just their smartphone. No download is necessary as it runs on the mobile browsers Safari and Chrome.
