I've been experimenting with Wikitude prior to starting an AR project and found a missing feature that would be really useful - obtaining the angle of the camera in relation to the locked on target.
For example, if a user points their phone at an object - say a picture in a magazine - it would be very useful to know the angle to the left/right and above/below the central point of the target. This would enable different experiences based on the direction you are looking at a target.
Do you have any idea if / when such data might be available in the SDK? I can use the sensors on the phone to determine movement around a target...but it's that initial reference point that is missing to know the first focus angles from which we could work with.

Hi Darren, We're planning to provide a new API to load Java/ObjC plugins into our SDK. These plugins will be able to access the modelView matrix of a recognized target. This matrix does include all information you're interested in.
We will launch the next version of our SDK probably in July.
