Google shows that iOS and Android devices can share the same world in augmented reality [Video]
A game-demo created by Google allows users iPhone and Android to interact with augmented reality. No, this is not the next step in the war between the platforms, but a demonstration of a way that allows you to ARKit Apple and ARCore Android access to the same world in virtual reality.
The colleagues of CNET have had the opportunity to try out the demo at the conference I/O Google: "the Light Board is a game designed by Google for iOS and Android that works on multiple devices. [...] I made a small base full of goals colorful [on my iPhone], and someone from Google has done the same on an Android device inside the room. I fired missiles virtual to their goal, and they have shot mine. Who is affected by all the first targets of the enemy wins".
The game works by using the ones that Google defines Cloud Anchors, i.e. “points to the shared data shared on the cloud where multiple devices can access the” using both ARKit that ARCore.
So as a game in augmented reality, cross-platform, Google hopes that the same technology can be exploited to use more practical. The game should be released in the next few weeks.
