Craftar - Image Recognition SDK examples for Google Glass


The CraftAR Service for Image Recognition is a service that allows you to build a wide range of Image Recognition applications and services.

With Craftar, you can create amazing apps that provide digital content for real-life objects like printed media, packaging among others. You can use our online web panel or APIs, to upload images to be recognized and set content to display upon recognition in your Craftar-powered app.
