ARKit will also allow us to draw on a real notepad

One of the great news (I would say was the most important) of WWDC 2017 was the presentation of ARKit (Apple's augmented reality platform). This new feature presented by Apple will come to light next September when iOS 11 is launched in a general way, while developers are still investigating and "playing" with this new platform.
Some of the news 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 not too long.

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 iOS 11 options in the augmented reality section, he was able to use it to develop the "virtual drawing" function . Vision includes an object tracking feature that is able to detect the thumbnail of a finger and follow its movement to allow drawing through the ARKit technology.
Abdel-Karim outlined the steps he used to create his ARKit demo and provided the complete source code for other interested developers to use in their projects.
When it comes next fall, ARKit will position itself as the great candidate to become the world's largest augmented reality platform . Using cameras, processors and motion sensors on the iPhone and iPad, the software will be able to create incredibly impressive interactions of augmented reality as we have seen previously.

Recall 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 it moves within a certain area such as a room. ARKit automatically analyzes the design of a room, detecting horizontal planes such as tables and floors, allowing virtual objects to be placed on those surfaces.

Unfortunately, the first applications 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 to work swiftly to show us applications as incredible as we can see on the part of Abdel-Karim. Applications to draw, applications to make measurements, applications of designs to add furniture or objects in our homes or simply applications of games that allow us to enter into the fun itself.
ARKit is one of the great bets of the future and we are anxious to be able to try in first person all these innovations on the part of the developers and the tools of Apple.
