We are going to learn what is Vuforia and how it is going to help us build an Augmented Reality application.
We are also going to signup to use this service.

Getting started with vuforia

In order to authorize the usage of Vuforia we need to generate a license key. This tells Unity (going to be used later) that we have the permission to use Vuforia in our project.

Creating a license key for our application

Marker/Image Target – this is an image which is recognized and tracked by a mobile device’s camera. This acts as an origin for augmentation. Once recognized, content can be displayed with respect to iy
