Mac Format - - APPLE CORE -

So, it seems pretty cer­tain that the iPhone 8 will boast a 3D sen­sor. I’m ex­cited about that! Me too. I mean, what cooler se­cu­rity pass is there than an iris scan! Mov­ing to­wards bio­met­ric se­cu­rity is so Mi­nor­i­tyRe­port! It’s the aug­mented re­al­ity ap­pli­ca­tion that I’m most in­ter­ested in. Once your humble phone can scan your face, you can start ap­pear­ing as the hero in your favourite game! It’s ac­tu­ally quite fright­en­ing at the same time. Have you seen that clip on Twit­ter? It’s sup­pos­edly an in­ter di­men­sional por­tal in a street, cre­ated us­ing Ap­ple’s ARKit. Talk about dis­ori­en­tat­ing. It’s hi­lar­i­ous that when you’re in the AR world, the real world ac­tu­ally looks to­tally fab­ri­cated and, er, un­real! Check out @made­with­ARKit! I love that clip! Just think, in a few short years, we may be able to par­take in an AR ex­pe­ri­ence just strolling down the street – they’ll be peo­ple spook­ing out and bump­ing into each other all over the place! I think we’re get­ting a bit car­ried away with the crazy, fun stuff. Ahem, as I said, this kind of tech will lead to se­ri­ously ro­bust se­cu­rity mea­sures. And that’s bet­ter for ev­ery­one.
