Google’s ARCore, an augmented reality platform, has been receiving quite an attention from the company. The tech giant has been working on the platform for about a year now and it has now announced that it is about to launch some exciting augmented reality features to the world.
These AR features Google is about to unleash are some kind of next-generation upgrades to depth detection. This is a move to make AR experiences in the future look and feel much more real.
Depth API, which is part of Google’s ARCore, is touted to soon allow developers to perform something called “occlusion”. This refers to when an artificial object can be blocked from view by other real-world objects in a scene.
For instance, a virtual pet can hide behind a real object in your camera. Some cool next-level stuff.
There’s no timeline for the release yet but it is sure coming somewhere next year.
