ZapBox is a new approach to making Mixed Reality affordable and accessible for all. Using the power of your smartphone and some simple physical components, ZapBox renders virtual content that appears to be anchored in the real world.

A headset inspired by Google Cardboard delivers realistic 3D visuals overlaid on a live view of your surroundings, whilst cardboard controllers allow you to physically interact with content in an entirely new way.

Using ZapWorks, developers are able to build their own Mixed Reality content and share it with the ZapBox community.

See the ZapBox Kickstarter page at to find out more about the physical ZapBox kits and learn how to get hold of one.

Then press the lock button to switch to a short-exposure mode for better tracking. The camera is stopped when you return to the menu screen, and you'll need to repeat this process whenever the camera starts (ie once in map-building mode, then again when you launch some content).
