Augmented reality is set to become one of the next big things in smartphones. Both Google and Apple have plans underway to push it to the next level, and you’re quite possible already using it without realizing. The face filters in Snapchat and Instagram are based on AR, as was the biggest mobile game of last year: Pokemon Go.

Google Launches Augmented Reality App ARCore For Android | #AR #RA 

Google Launches Augmented Reality App ARCore For Android | #AR #RA  | Augmented Reality & VR Tools and News | Scoop.it
Google has launched its own augmented reality kit for developers, called ARCore, a lighter version of the company’s Tango platform that does not require any specialized hardware to run.

ARCore is a light software development kit, similar to Apple’s ARkit, which is able to track motion, understand flat surfaces, and estimate where the light will be for accurate shadows.

See Also: Glass restarted after two years in the dark

The SDK is currently available on Android 7.0 Nougat and its successor Android Oreo. It will work on the Google Pixel and the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. Google is aiming for 100 million supported devices by the end of the year, according to The Verge.

Google has been working on Project Tango for three years now, launching specialized smartphones with Lenovo and Asus. The devices had depth perception functionality, because of the dual-cameras, creating the “six degrees of freedom” found on high-end virtual reality (VR) headsets.

Why is ARKit better than the alternatives? – Super Ventures Blog – Medium

Why is ARKit better than the alternatives? – Super Ventures Blog – Medium | Augmented Reality & VR Tools and News | Scoop.it
Apple’s announcement of ARKit at the recent WWDC has had a huge impact on the Augmented Reality eco-system. Developers are finding that for the first time a robust and (with IOS11) widely available AR SDK “just works” for their apps. There’s no need to fiddle around with markers or initialization or depth cameras or proprietary creation tools. Unsurprisingly this has led to a boom in demos (follow @madewitharkit on twitter for the latest). However most developers don’t know how ARKit works, or why it works better than other SDKs. Looking “under the hood” of ARKit will help us understand the limits of ARKit today, what is still needed & why, and help predict when similar capabilities will be available on Android and Head Mount Displays (either VR or AR).


"I’ve been working in AR for 9 years now, and have built technology identical to ARKit in the past (sadly before the hardware could support it well enough). I’ve got an insiders view on how these systems are built and why they are built the way they are."

ARKit is a Goldmine for VR Developers

One of the most enjoyable accounts on Twitter in recent days has been @MadewithARKit, which curates some of the best new pieces of content created in Apple’s new ARKit toolbox. The possibilities for VR developers that want to use the technology are literally endless, and if you use Unity, it is very easy to move VR objects into ARKit. It’s also quick — you can make an object in a program like Google Blocks and then put it in ARKit, where it can interact with the real world.
Developer and musician Andrew Deutsch used Blocks and ARKit to create a piano playing character who could then perform on any surface, including a bar top or an outdoor cafe table. He also made a piece where flowers popped up all over a dirty NYC subway platform. Deutsch is planning on spending more time experimenting with the medium, too. “It’s a brand new world of creation,” he says. “I’m following what a lot of people are making and the main thing is the they are having fun with it.”

VR artist Cabbibo, for instance, has shared a number of pieces, including one where flowers grow out of a sidewalk.
It also appears that he spent some of this time watching Netflix while creating swirling patterns around his living room.

But as much fun as it can be to create artsy projects, ARKit can also be the basis for many practical applications. At a recent ARKit meetup in New York, one company demoed a piece that allowed users to scan menus and visualize food items — great for people with visual or reading comprehension difficulties or non-native language speakers. There’s also a great use case for decorators or anyone who has struggled to buy a new sofa without knowing exactly how it will look in their living room. And of course, as use cases in the commercial space grow, brands will want to get in on the game, and companies like Vertebrae can help developers monetize their projects.

As VR grows and changes as a medium, it is bound to start intersecting with AR in a number of ways. Nexus Interactive Arts, for instance, created basic inside-out positional tracking and pass-through AR for a Google Cardboard headset. Normal VR mirrored the actions of someone painting in the Vive with a character so users could see what was being created in real time.
For developers, the time to start exploring ARKit is now, when it’s still relatively underground. Once the mainstream finds out about the technology and what it can be used to create, the gold rush will be on.
