AR is the core technology behind amazing apps such as Pokémon Go, Snapchat's animated emojis, and Instagram's 3D stickers. And today we will learn how to Build Augmented Reality apps using ARKit in iOS 12 and Swift 4.

In this series you will learn everything that you need to know to make your own cool ARKit games. Of course we will use quite a lot of SceneKit too. We will go through the basics of Augmented Reality and Apple’s ARKit. We apply the lessons and craft an application that adds 3D models to the world using different methods.

By doing so, you will learn how to:

  • add and remove Objects;

  • use Plane Detection;

  • add Floor, Textures and Materials;

  • Mesure Distance;

  • build Drawing App in ARKit;

  • build an AR Joystick.

The code for this demo can be found on GitHub too.
