Using ARKIT and Unity, develop an ARKIT Memory Portal Augmented Reality application
Curious about ARKIT, You have come to the right place. Learn the basics fundamentals and programming techniques required for building fully functional ARKit Apps. For this course you will need an iPhone 6 Plus or above running on iOS 11 along with a Mac system
So what is Augmented Reality?
According to Wikipedia, Augmented reality (AR) is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are “augmented” by computer-generated or extracted real-world sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data.
In Augmented Reality the real view is modified by a computer (Smartphone in this case). Augmented reality enhances one’s current perception of reality, whereas in contrast, virtual reality replaces the real world with a simulated one. Augmentation techniques are basically performed in real time,
Eg : Displaying live scores and statistics inside a live video of a sporting event
Power of Augmented Reality & ARKit
I came across Augmented Reality in 2015 after watching a video of Augmented Reality Book. I was fascinated to know that such technology actually exists. So I started researching on different Augmented Reality platform. Vuforia platform seemed very promising as developers all over the World have used Vuforia for developing Augmented Reality apps.
Pokemon Go game is the best example of Augmented Reality. Other than that Augmented Reality apps expand over a wide range of topics from Education, Business, Architecture, Health Industry, Home Decoration and obviously mobile gaming.
