🌍Location Based Example

Please follow these simple steps:

  • Create a new project with the following snippet, and change add-your-latitude and add-your-longitude with your latitude and longitude, without the <>.
  • Run it on a server
  • Activate GPS on your phone and navigate to the example URL
  • Look around. You should see the text looking at you, appearing in the requested position, even if you look around and move.
