AR Stickers v1.3 reduces app size to 8.6MB by making Star Wars and Stranger Things packs optional [APK Download]

Tuesday, August 7th, 2018

AR Stickers launched with a handful of sticker packs, all of which were included in the main app's download. Over time, however, Google kept making each pack separate apps that you'd have to download to use, leaving 'Star Wars' and 'Stranger Things' as the only pre-installed ones. Now, Google has spun those two off as well, reducing the AR Stickers app size from 65MB to just 8.5MB.

There were initially five sticker packs: 'Star Wars,' 'Stranger Things,' 'Foodmoji,' 'Blocks,' and 'Text.' A separate 'Winter Sports' pack was added in a February update, in which 'Blocks' was removed and made its own pack.

Snapchat is getting new lenses that recognize and react to speech

Wednesday, August 1st, 2018

Technology always trickles down to less and less important uses over time. Case in point: speech recognition. It was, at one time, futuristic and incredible that computers could understand us, but now it's just kind of a given. In keeping with its trajectory of increasing mundanity, speech recognition has made its way to perhaps the most frivolous use case of all: Snapchat lenses. (They're actually pretty neat, though.)

The new lenses react to the things you say in a variety of ways.

Niantic acquires ‘Blade Runner: Revelations’ and ‘Marvel Strikeforce’ developer Seismic Games

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

"Pokémon Go" developer Niantic Labs has sure been keeping itself busy. The company has announced that it's acquired Seismic Games, developer of "Blade Runner: Revelations" and "Marvel Strikeforce." The studio employs veterans of some big names in gaming like EA and Activision.

Niantic trades on augmented reality offerings. Seismic isn't known for AR games, although its "Blade Runner: Revelations" is a Daydream VR title. In a blog post, Niantic wrote that it sees "the addition of Seismic Games as a significant accelerant for realizing [its] vision of an operating system that bridges the digital and the physical worlds." The use of the term "operating system" is curious, but it seems to be in reference to the studio's Real World Platform.

‘Pokémon Go’ developer Niantic shows off AR tech that lets Pikachu hide behind real-world objects

Thursday, June 28th, 2018

An annoying but understandable quirk about the current state of most augmented reality applications is that virtual items imposed on an AR view don't relate to the world in a believable way: they just sit on top of a scene, regardless of whether or not real-world objects should appear in front of them. "Pokémon Go" developer Niantic showed off its impressive solution to this problem today in what it's calling Codename: Niantic Occlusion — using of course, Pokémon.

Google’s formerly Tango-only Measure comes to ARCore devices [APK Download]

Thursday, June 21st, 2018

Google Measure, an app that — get this — lets you measure things, debuted in 2016 as a Tango exclusive. But with advances in augmented reality tech in more mainstream handsets, a lot of things only Tango could do are trickling down to devices regular people use. That includes Measure, which is now compatible with ARCore devices.

If you're familiar with AR, the experience is pretty simple: place two markers in real-world locations and get the distance between the two.

NBA releases AR app on Android along with new 360 Portals feature

Thursday, May 31st, 2018

Later today, the Golden State Warriors will host the Cleveland Cavaliers in game one of the NBA Finals in Oakland. It's the fourth straight year the two teams have contested the championship, and anyone who watches basketball will be eager to see if LeBron James can pull off probably his greatest achievement yet and lead his team to victory against the odds. It's also the perfect time to release a new app related to the sport, and that's exactly what the NBA has just done.

Just a Line gets promised collaborative update, goes cross-platform [APK Download]

Wednesday, May 30th, 2018

Google released augmented reality doodling app Just a Line back in March. The neat (if frivolous) app lets you draw shapes in the air that realistically float in place as you move around them, looking through your phone's display. Now, two users are able to share one doodling space across separate devices — even if one is an Android phone and the other is an iPhone.

The update was teased at Google I/O this year and made possible on Android by ARCore v1.2, along with what Google calls Cloud Anchors.
