Here’s why ARKit on iOS 11 is a game-changer
When Apple announced iOS 11 last month, it touted iOS 11 as the ‘biggest iOS update ever,’ and now more evidences have emerged that prove so. Well, it’s actually the iOS 11 features itself.
While it’s been just a month since Apple released iOS 11 beta firmware, developers have already started playing and teasing iOS 11 features that Apple demoed on stage during its WWDC keynote. One of the cool (or coolest) features in iOS 11 include ARKit.
iOS 11 comes with ARKit, Apple’s Software Development Kit (SDK) for building immersive Augmented Reality (AR) experiences on the iPhone and iPad. The beauty here is that you’ll not require any additional hardware to put on your iOS device, and it will work seamless on all iOS 11-supported devices. iPhone and iPad both.
Many iOS developers around the world have shared what it’s like to use ARKit in development, with examples that would probably hit the App Store this fall when iOS 11 launches publicly.
We’ve curated some ARKit-powered demos here in this post to give you an idea of ARKit and its implementation, especially in visual reality. Check them out below.
OnePlus 5 Official Wallpapers Now Available For Download
Hampus Olsson, the designer behind popular OnePlus wallpapers, is back with OnePlus 5 soft assets. Olsson posted the journey behind these new OnePlus 5 wallpapers on his blog, stating a greater focus on the individual shapes. Abstract.
I thought I would experiment with macro photography this time, together with my dad, who was currently visiting me in India. We got a bunch of plastic containers which we started pouring acrylic, ink, and mediums into. We captured a bunch of photos of the fluid mix, while it was changing pattern quickly. Many of the photos could be used in various ways, like being wrapped onto 3D surfaces, or mixed to look like hot lava and cold winds to complement the final artwork. However, most of these photos weren’t used. Instead, I created a more refined and subtle style that was developed to fit the style OnePlus was looking for with this phone.
The final artworks have a greater focus on the individual shapes, blending into its surrounding, barren environment. The focus became the centerpiece, which is abstract, yet easy to grasp. I love how these wallpapers turned out, and I will experiment with this style more extensively in the future.
Available in 2K, 4K, and “Never Settle” versions, the official OnePlus 5 wallpapers are now available for download. We’ve posted a few shapes below for what to expect from Hampus Olsson’s artwork on the OnePlus 5. Grab the all-new OnePlus 5 wallpapers (.zip) now!
