DAQRI was founded in 2010 and entered the market in February 2011 by releasing an augmented reality publishing platform designed to superimpose an image or video over a smartphone’s camera after scanning a QR Code.  Daqri subsequently created content and applications for 4D augmented reality technology for entertainment, education and industrial companies.
