We all liked the experience. Unfortunately we had to share 3 glasses between five of us. The father initially was a bit skeptical but at the end he said he liked it.

I really appreciated the 3rd reconstruction but it caused a bit of dizziness.

Does the app work without the stereo goggles?

For the most vivid impressions we recommend to buy our Viewer Box stereo goggles.

Please note that the goggles must support augmented (mixed) reality mode i.e. the smartphone camera must not be obscured by any part of the goggles.
