Apple made a big fuss about the introduction of their ARKit in the latest iOS update.
The kit delivers the necessary framework to make iOS devices AR ready.
This means if you have updated to iOS 11, you are now holding an AR machine in your hands.
But what does all of that mean, you ask.
Well simply put, you can do some really cool stuff with your phone now.
Here are three must-try ARKit apps:
Holo lets you add holograms of real people and animals into your world and take photos & videos to share with friends.
Holo is the first app that lets users move around 3D holograms of people and interact with them as if truly there in real life, giving them an entirely new way to create content and tell stories in AR.
This app lets users explore their Strava bike rides and runs in augmented reality.
A beautiful 3D terrain map, powered by Mapbox, is placed in the real world allowing users to walk around and explore their past activities in a way that wasn’t possible before.
After users choose an activity or route and bring up the AR camera, they can tap to place the map in the real world.
Swiping up and down will change the distance of the map from the floor.
Swiping left and right will change the rotation of the map.
Pinching to zoom will change the scale of the map.
Two finger tap and holding will let users reposition the map with their device position.
Always wanted to swim with Sharks but worried about getting wet or even eaten?
Worry no more with shARk, the app that lets sharks enter your world and swim with you.
Users can share videos of the weirdest places they find sharks through the in-app video sharing.
