Dekko is a San Francisco based company developing 3D mapping and augmented reality engine.[clarification needed][1] Using a built in camera on smart phones or wearable devices (like Google Glass), Dekko's software digitally recreates a scene allowing apps and users to interact with their real world surroundings.

Founded in 2011 by Silka and Matt Miesnieks,[2] Dekko has raised $3.2 million in early funding rounds. Their first game, Tabletop Speed,[3] is an augmented reality race car game for iOS devices.

Dekko is currently[4] working on augmented reality apps for Android and Google Glass.
