Since 4.0
Until 4.2

As of January of 2017 the BridgeIt project has been deprecated. As a result, this component has been removed from ICEfaces as of the 4.2 release.

The mobi:augmentedReality component renders a button that launches the Bridgeit application on the user's device to display an overlay on a picture or video with virtual objects and markers.
