Apple’s ARKit 2 will now support multiplayer #Apple #ARKit
Apple announced the next generation of ARKit earlier this year. ARKit 2 introduces us to a new multiplayer mode for AR games and another mode that allows for virtual objects to be placed in an area and remain in place.
The first ARKit instantly turned hundreds of millions of iPhones and iPads into AR-compatible machines and users could suddenly add digital objects onto the real world – with the right applications, of course.
Now with ARKit 2, Apple is going even further. Here’s an outline of a few big changes ARKit brings:
•Improved Face Tracking
•3D Object Detection
If you are an iOS developer, Apple has provided sample you a sample code of the ARKit multiplayer SwiftShot. Read more here

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
