Apple is about to introduce AR, or augmented reality, to the world at large. Unlike the AR featured in the seminal classic Total Recall, this new and actually useful feature uses your iPhone’s camera to interact with digital apps in the real world. Developers have already been hacking away at Apple’s new AR tech, which will be available in iOS 11 on iPhone and iPad.
Here are 5 things you’ll be using AR to do in the very near future. Like maybe next week.
SHOP IKEA AT HOME
Now if only AR made building complicated furniture with tiny Allen wrenches easier. Fingers crossed for that feature in iOS 12.
REMODEL YOUR KITCHEN
I’m personally a fan of subway tile for backsplash, but you do you.
ORDER OFF THE TABLE, NOT THE MENU
Your eyes may still be bigger than your stomach, though.
TRANSFORM YOUR DINING ROOM INTO A BATTLE ZONE
And not just when you make the mistake of talking politics at the table this Thanksgiving.
