Image recognition and interpretation is a very requested task into modern application. Either you want to identify a specific image or object or either you want to interpret what the users get in front their smartphone camera.
A technology that is becoming more and more popular among developers with this task is Vuforia. This framework can recognize a specific image and track it while the image is in the scene. The same goes to Custom 3D object, Cylinders, boxes, etc.
Moreover, Vuforia is widely accepted because we can use it with almost any device, from older and cheap Android smartphone to the most recent VR/AR/MX devices. In this post, we will use the Vuforia capabilities from Unity3D because it is also multi-platform.
