Above is an example of one of their latest augmented reality games, STACKAAR. If you are excited to play this as well as any of their upcoming games, check out the beta program on their website.

In this entry of the series, MobiledgeX Developer Advocate Vasanth Mohan sits down with Tim Friedland, the CEO of forwARdgame, to find out how they are using 5G and the MobiledgeX Edge-Cloud platform for multiplayer AR application development around the world. Specifically, we discuss why low latency in AR gaming is necessary to providing an experience where the real and virtual worlds are synchronized in near real time.
