Google’s Measure now works on vertical surfaces, lets you easily copy the measurement [APK Download]

Friday, August 3rd, 2018

Google's Measure app is a very neat augmented reality tool that can take measurements of surfaces without a ruler or tape or anything beside your smartphone. However, since its launch, the app was only able to detect horizontal surfaces, but that's changing now.

In the latest v2.1 of Measure, the app will recognize vertical surfaces as well and show its signature dots on them. You can use both the distance and elevation tools on them.

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.

22 new and notable augmented reality apps and games from the last four months (3/24/18 – 7/30/18)

Monday, July 30th, 2018

There was a huge uptick of augmented reality apps and games released on the Play Store back in March that was a result of ARCore's expanded device support. AP covered both the games and apps published at the time, but I wanted to keep track of further releases just to see if we could keep these AR roundups going. It may have taken four months, but I finally have a solid AR roundup for all of our readers.

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.

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.

Life, uh, finds a way… out of beta: Jurassic World Alive app gets official release

Wednesday, May 30th, 2018

Two months ago I wrote a piece about Jurassic World Alive that talked about how the game was scheduled for an official release sometime in the Spring. Well, it would appear that the developers have stayed true to their word as Jurassic World Alive is officially available on the Play Store as of today. If you weren't already aware, this is an augmented reality game all about collecting dinosaurs. Think Pokémon GO, but instead of collecting hundreds of adorable make-believe creatures, you will be venturing out into the world to obtain the most fearsome dinosaurs known to man and maybe even make a few new species of your own.
