When we started creating Reacts almost 5 years ago, our vision was to develop a highly interactive platform that would allow manipulation of various multimedia elements (images, videos, 3D objects, etc.) over a shared background, in order to provide a much more dynamic and interactive way of collaborating. We were able to implement augmented reality and other innovative tools in the platform using consumer electronics and simple accessories.
