When we got the LiDAR sensor on the iPad Pro earlier this year, we weren’t sure if it would have an impact. Above all, we associate it with augmented reality applications, for which it can be a very interesting tool. But the iPhone 12 Pro showed us that he was only scratching the surface than what you can do with this sensor.
For those who are still a bit confused, understandable given that this is a relatively new inclusion, this sensor is a real prodigy. In short, this makes it possible to know the distance at which all the elements of the environment are located with great precision. This makes the device have a better understanding of space
With the most recent Apple phones, which in their Pro version integrate the LiDAR sensor, those from Cupertino present new features that make use of it. All related to the camera, LiDAR sensor brings better and faster focus
However, the real protagonists are the developers. And they made jewelry like LiDAR NIGHT VISION, an app that allows you to use the sensor to see in the dark, as shared on Reddit. Thanks to the characteristics of the sensor, it can map the environment without the need for light, identifying different levels of depth in the scene.
As an example of what this sensor can do, LiDAR NIGHT VISION can be really useful. It is available in the App Store for only 1.09 dollars, and is compatible with both the latest generation iPad Pro, as well as the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max. Without a doubt, this is just the start of a bright future.
