Metaio includes gravity in augmented reality platform
Have you seen just how augmented reality (AR) apps have changed the way we see things around us?

GhostGuitar app lets you play air guitar... for real
Most of the time when we play air guitar, it’s because we’re listening to a song with a catchy riff or solo, and we can’t help but just pretend to play along to it.
