This is a clock widget with a live background normally.
you can swipe to view around the machine.
When you put the tracker 1 in front of the cam, the machine will augment on it.
After you augmented the first machine, you can active machine 2 with the tracker 2.
When you put them in right place, they can form up to one complex marble machine.

I think I might not understand this one a little.

The background can be modified into a marble track similar to the old Hot Wheels ones, where the marble will run from the oneend of the original track to the other and then, if properly placed, onto the next piece if track. I'm downloading it to try out now. Will report back in a day or so how it works out.

I'm not sure I'm clear on what the Tracker 1 and Tracker 2 are and how to get them to change. Little help, Dev?

Also, after watching for about 8-10 cycles, one of the marbles eventually fell off the track ad got stuck in the middle...

Be careful... The permissions for this app are excessive. Why does it need SDCard access? The undetailed description at the top smells of malware...

I installed this app and wiresharked it... This app is calling home.

For the SD Permission that is a mistake for App2SD testing.
This does only a simple thing, augment the track on the picture or call them tracker.
Print out that two picture which call Tracker 1 and Tracker2.
Put Tracker1 in front of the camera the track augment on the picture.
After the first track active, you can active the second track with Tracker2.
When both track on screen, they can interact each other.
Not too many interaction, put the trackers in right place then they will connect.

I think marker base AR is too troublesome and not too good other then commercial.
So there lot of space to improve. And though the questions I know this app an epic fail which cant explain it's interaction.
May be there is a next version with improved asset and description in game.
