Stanford Visit Day 5: Testing AR Kit 2 on Campus-Scaled model at Apple Park Visitor Centre
Written by

Day 5 was a day including 2 visits and 3 demos. Our visit to Apple Park Visitor Centre was to get a sense of the attention to detail in the use of the Augmented Reality tool of the new AR Kit 2, to explore the scale version of Apple's New Campus in Cupertino. This is the same technology Ignacio uses for "Maia" in Unity 3D using his new iPad Pro provided by EASTN-DC for this project. The effect is quite spectacular. It seems like for synchronising the vegetation and 3D models, ARKit takes advantage of the grid in the Scale surface, alongside camera and sensors technology within the iPad.
