One of Apple’s most ridiculous ideas ever

Advertisements


The other day I noticed a huge number of outlets covering how you can’t go to see the new iPad Pro in Apple Stores, but “you can use the magic of AR to see it on your desk or in your living room!”

OK, first off, who needs this? It’s an iPad. It looks like every other iPad.  I’m pretty sure most people have seen one already. It’s a slab of glass and metal. 

Secondly, is imagination dead? Can’t people imagine what the new iPad Pro would look like? Is this the best use of AR?

Third, it’s, well, how do I say this? It’s a bit rubbish. Sure, you can use it to pop a virtual iPad Pro (and admittedly it’s a good virtual replica) onto surfaces in your home or office, but it just sort of awkwardly sits there. 

Looks real, doesn't it? No, it doesn't.

Looks real, doesn’t it? No, it doesn’t.

It’s a bit weird. I’m not sure who would find this useful. 

If you want to try to, click here (you will need an iPhone or iPad for it to work).

Is this something you find useful? Let me know.

I'm a 50 year old PLC programmer from Burnley, UK. I severed my time as an electrician in the baking industry and soon got involved with the up and coming technology of PLC's. Initially this was all based in the Uk but as the years went by I have gradually worked my way around the globe. At first it was mainly Mitsubishi with a bit of Modicon thrown in but these days the industry leaders seem to be the Allen Bradley range of PLC and HMI’s.
