Please check out DART, our AR toolkit built into Director.
We just release a first "beta" ... it still has some bugs (we found a=20
bunch working on a demo last week, and are doing another demo this=20
coming week), but we'll be posting pretty frequent updates for a while.=20
It's largely stable (the aformentioned bugs are in some pretty obscure =
Enjoy, and let me know if it's useful.
