We’re all aware of how Apple never ceases to amaze us! From mesmerizing us with its design to fascinating us with mind-blowing tech gadgets every year – they have never stopped trying to win us over. And this time they have taken our expectations a step ahead, iPhone users all around the world are in for a new reality – an augmented one!
With the advent of the iPhone X, we’ve seen some cool features, like the OLED screen, a true depth camera and a whole new design element. However, this time, Apple developers have worked in full swing presenting the world with a whole new level of technological development – the ARKit, or the Augmented Reality Kit.
First Things First: What Is Augmented Reality?
Let us picture this – A user wants to buy a new car but is skeptical about purchasing it with questions like – what will it look like outside the showroom, will the colour look dull without the flashy focus lights on it, will it look just as sleek on the road, what will it look like parked outside my house and so on. Rewind this instance five years before, and the only solution was to buy the car and analyse its aesthetics later. Wouldn’t it be amazing to know that there exists a technology now that can help see how the car will look outside the showroom without having to purchase it?
Make way for augmented reality! With this massive leap in technology, a user can now see what the vehicle he planned on buying would look like anywhere, in any location, at any time and in any season!
Augmented reality can help people perceive or picture elements or views around them, in a way where they look real. Want to sport a mohawk or dye your hair blue? Augmented reality will show the users exactly how it would look. The breath-taking augmented reality features are revolutionising the way we see the world!
