ARKit will also allow us to draw on a real notepad — 2022
One of the great novelties (I would say that it was the most important) of the WWDC 2017 was the presentation of ARKit (Apple's augmented reality platform). This novelty presented by Apple will be released next September when iOS 11 is released in general, while developers continue to investigate and play with this new platform.
Some of the novelties that are being developed with ARKit are being shown in different videos on the web . Countless options that can be included in applications and games within a short time.
New demonstration of the possibilities of ARKit
The latest demonstration of the potential of Apple's augmented reality platform comes courtesy of Osama Abdel-Karim, a developer who uses ARKit to paint with augmented reality technology inside a real notebook .
According to Abdel-Karim, thanks to the iOS 11 options in the augmented reality section, was able to use it to develop the virtual drawing function . Vision includes an object tracking feature that is capable of detecting the thumbnail of a finger and tracking its movement to enable drawing through ARKit technology. This way it will be easierdraw on ipadand other devices.
Abdel-Karim has outlined the steps he used to create his ARKit demo and provided the complete source code so that other interested developers can use it in your projects.
When next fall arrives, ARKit will position itself as the great candidate to become the largest augmented reality platform worldwide . Using the cameras, processors, and motion sensors in the iPhone and iPad, the software will be able to create incredibly impressive augmented reality interactions just like we've seen before.
Apple's augmented reality platform will be the world's largest in September
Let us remember that the ARKit augmented reality platform uses a technology called Visual Inertial Odometry which allows you to track the world around an iPad or iPhone. A technology that allows a device to detect how you move within a certain area such as a room for example. ARKit automatically analyzes the layout of a room, detecting horizontal planes like tables and floors, allowing virtual objects to be placed on those surfaces.
Unfortunately, the first apps and games with ARKit will not be available until iOS 11 is officially available to the general public . However, the different uses that can be applied to future applications or games thanks to the ARKit platform. It is the turn of the developers working quickly to show us applications as incredible as the one we can see by Abdel-Karim. Applications to draw, applications to make measurements, design applications to add furniture or objects in our houses or simply game applications that allow us to enter into the fun itself. This will also be able to terminate applications to thejournaling apps for iphone.
ARKit is one of the great bets for the future and we are eager to be able to test all these new developments by Apple developers and tools first-hand.
