TikTok Launches Its First AR Reality Effect to Use LiDAR in iPhone 12 Pro Models

TikTok has launched its first AR reality effect to make use of the LiDAR technology with the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max.

The iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max have the LiDAR scanner, a small sensor that uses 3D sensing to measure the distance to surrounding objects up to five meters away.

So developers can then create augmented reality experiences and utilize unique capabilities in their apps. Such can be to measure a person's height instantly.

TikTok shared the effect celebrates the New Year with golden balloons and explosions of confetti that react to the presence of real objects in the environment. This was shared on TikTok's official Twitter account

The AR effect makes it look like its real in the room. This is fascinating, it gently settles on the man's arms and furniture around him on the video shared on Twitter
