IMPORTANT NOTE: AR Horse requires Google ARCore Preview 1 (not Google ARCore Preview 2 or ArCore available in the Play Store) and a compatible Android device. ARCore Preview 1 is experimental software not supported by all devices. If the app crashes when starting, check that you have installed the Google ARCore Preview 1 at https://github.com/google-ar/arcore-android-sdk/releases/download/sdk-preview/arcore-preview.apk.
Augmented reality has never felt so realistic. Belgian software developer Graphine and VFX leader Weta Digital (Lord of The Rings) now developed AR Horse, a mobile augmented reality app that allows you to spawn a lifelike horse anywhere in real time simply using your ARCore compatible smartphone.
AR IN VFX-QUALITY
The app demonstrates near VFX quality in augmented reality for the first time and makes this unique technology now available on ARCore compatible hardware. Seeing is believing: download AR Horse on your smartphone or tablet now and get instantly blown away by a near-photorealistic AR-experience. Yee-haw!
The technology developed by Graphine helps mobile developers to push the visual boundaries towards augmented, virtual and mixed reality. In the application, VFX assets – a huge black horse, in this particular case – are displayed crisply in real time, right in front of the user. There is no other application out there that can display a large virtual object in such detail.
THE FUTURE OF AR
This new and groundbreaking AR-technology opens the door for accessible, near-photorealistic applications that will be used for virtual stores, promotional films and experiences, games or advertising. Download the mobile app now on your smartphone or tablet and experience the unlimited possibilities of augmented reality.
