Apple's got another update in store for us soon, this time heavily affecting one of its niftiest features, ARKit, but in a very good way.
Once it rolls out, ARKit 1.5 will be able to offer more freedom to developers and consumers as it moves from primarily flat surfaces and branches out to posters, doors, and walls. I know that sounds a little weird but bear with me.
ARKit 1.5 allows developers to transform more objects into cool, interactive experiences, such as posters, signs, and artworks. If you're not very impressed by the idea, just imagine what it could lead to.
As suggested in Apple's article, if we get to a place where museums and galleries can successfully integrate the technology into their exhibits, it could open up a totally new world of interactive learning.
Imagine being about to walk around a true-to-life dinosaur in its full form? Or, to get a closer look at some of history's greatest heroes and villains? Hell, even to hop inside the minds of some of the world's maddest and most brilliants artists and inventors.
More than just looking at it as another way to bring games into 'real life', it's opening up so many doors for education and I'm excited to see where each of them leads.
