AR technology is progressing at an unprecedented pace; Apple and Google are investing billions in R&D to equip our smartphones – and soon our smart glasses – with hardware and software capable of blurring the distinction between the physical and virtual world.
We’re happy to announce that leveraging such developments, we’re pushing the envelope of what’s possible in AR with the new version of the OVER app.
We’re enabling Real World Occlusion, which means that your AR experiences will be aware of your surroundings. The AR experiences will be aware of colliders such as furniture, walls, and people, making those even more realistic and interactive. There’s nothing worse than seeing AR objects crossing walls or being incorrectly projected over people and things, to break the magic spell of AR.
Well… this is the past!
The feature is enabled as cross-OS, with both iOS and Android supporting the new feature, yet results may vary depending on the HW your device is provided with. On this first iteration, only collectibles will support real-world occlusion, but with subsequent versions, we will enable the feature to be activated by creators on all of their experiences.
We can’t wait to see how our community will leverage the real world!
