Now that iOS 13 is in the wild, developers are starting to show off the magical augmented reality powers that ARKit 3 can deliver.
A shining example comes through the new Meisai AR Filter app, developed by the Japanese Kitasenju Design, which is capable of producing visual illusions that would make Doctor Strange quit sorcery.
The app uses the People Occlusion and Motion Capture functions of ARKit 3 to cover users' hands with real-time (and sometimes psychedelic) digital patterns and animations.
Conversely, the app can segment the background and replace it with the virtual backgrounds, allowing the user to set an improvised green screen.
Meisai can also display digital clones of user appendages, creating a trippy scene for viewers.
