Augmented reality is one of the most promising areas of technology. For many, this is the technology that will end up making the smartphone obsolete, but the truth is that today it is still a technology with much room for improvement. Google has created an application that teaches us all the bases of its ARCore augmented reality technology.
Have you ever been curious about augmented reality? Whether you're a developer looking to create a new application, or a user who is simply curious to understand what technology is capable of, this Google application is made for you.
The Google application that teaches us the potential of augmented reality
ARCore is an augmented reality platform for Android that has been created by Google. This technology was introduced in August 2017, although it was not until February of last year that it began to be available to users.
Since its launch, the platform has received many improvements, but there is still room for improvement. This part is the responsibility of Google, but to end up implementing the technology it is also necessary for developers to create applications that we can enjoy.
Being such a complex technology, Google wanted to create an application that intuitively explain the key aspects ARCore, and the ARCore Elements application is ideal for this.
Simply download the application on Google Play and start testing it. Keep in mind, of course, that not all phones are compatible with this technology, although Google has a dedicated website where we can see which are the certified devices.
ARCore Elements is an application that, using our mobile camera, will invite us to look for a flat surface. Once we locate that surface, an interactive dashboard will be displayed where we can experiment with the key points of the augmented reality of Google.
Are you a developer and are you curious to know the tools that support ARCore? This application will help you to know the key points with total simplicity. Are you a user who is curious about ARCore? We also recommend testing the application, since it does not require prior programming knowledge.
