Bye bye smileys, send Visiooons to your friends
Arooound is an augmented reality app developed by digital studio Dift.co with the Apple AR Kit. It lets people create shareable content with AR, from a library of assets and character, called Visiooons. Users can select a Visiooon, place it in their everyday surroundings using their camera and see the character interact with them. They can then record the result and share it with their friends. 3D designers can also create their own Visiooons and submit them to the library.
Arooound (just like Safari Central) prefigures the explosion of augmented reality apps to expect in coming years. This app is an example of entertaining, social applications that make augmented reality more intuitive and accessible.
