Dear Dan & Shawn,
Thank you both for your detailed answers!
This helpes a lot!
Best would be WebGL but i have read somewhere that it can not use vr
rendering, (stereo pics and phone tracking) but this neads to be veryfied.
If not, I think i should go both routes (TestFlight and on spot deployment)
simultaniously, since i dont even know how many people will show up with
iPhones. But total audiance will be up to 200 people..
Thanks again and if more thoughts come up, please let me know.
