TikTok Launches First LiDAR-Enabled AR Effect for iPhone 12

In 2021, AR will be seeing a lot of advancement, and many devices will be utilizing AR more and more.

For TikTok, it’s adding a new LiDAR-enabled effect to the iPhone 12 Pro this year.

What is LiDAR you ask? According to Wikipedia:

Lidar is a method for measuring distances (ranging) by illuminating the target with laser light and measuring the reflection with a sensor. Differences in laser return times and wavelengths can then be used to make digital 3-D representations of the target.”

Basically, this new technology responds to real-world environments. As you can see from the tweet above, during the New Years count down, once the confetti falls to the ground, it lands on the floor and couch as if it was real life confetti.

This specific effect was created by Garrett Fuselier, who previewed the effect on LinkedIn.
