Hello everybody!

We are happy to deliver our first Newsletter. There are a lot of things happening in the AR/VR world. Recently, big players announced they were entering the game for real! We got Google coming to WebAR, and yesterday Apple announced their "ARkit". Very exciting times...

We thought it was a good idea to start a newsletter gathering and sharing WebVR/WebAR content. Now is the best moment because it's starting to take off. AR/VR will soon be available to everyone. Bring on the future! 

Hope you enjoy what we've put together here.
