On June 28th 2018 at TokBox HQ in San Francisco we held a Live Meetup on Augmented Reality and Live Video where we explored the ongoing growth of AR, how AR apps are built, and how AR and Live Video work together within remote augmented video solutions.

Augmented Reality is an exciting and rapidly growing technology space. A recent BI Intelligence report showed the overall AR/VR market growing at an annualized rate of 113% to reach $215 billion in 2021, up from $11 billion in 2017. Today we are seeing significant investments by tech giants such as Apple, Google, Microsoft and Facebook along with Industry app growth in markets including retail, manufacturing and, of course, gaming.
