Continuing on the theme of new AR development, I watched the following video on new Google AR Core features at the 2018 Google I/O conference.
A fascinating new feature Google rolled out is Augmented Images. Developers can now tell their AR apps to recognize certain images and bring them to life. When a user holds up her camera to a recognized image, the image will pop out and display 3D features.
A fascinating application mentioned in the keynote is in textbooks. Developers can write apps for specific textbooks which students can then use while studying.
Consider the following illustration of Bohr's model, typical for high school Chemistry textbooks
Instead of cluttering illustrations with arrows and text, textbook developers can work with an accompanying app to better illustrate complex concepts.
Similar technique can be applied for online publications, blogs, etc.
