How the iPhone Uses Lidar

A developer has shared an interesting and artistic way to represent how the iPhone 13 Pro Max’s sensors see the world, and the result is both beautiful and mesmerizing. The latest and most premium iPhone features a variety of cameras and Apple added a LiDAR scanner as well. In some ways, this allows the iPhone 13 Pro Max to see more than the human eye can perceive.

From an article in Screenrant by Alan Truly.

Apple’s first device capable of scanning depth data using LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) was the 2020 iPad Pro. The iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max, which came later the same year, brought these sensors into a device that fits inside the pocket. In 2021, both M1 iPad Pro models, as well as the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max, also arrived equipped with LiDAR, cementing this advanced ranging technology as standard equipment for the Pro models.

The iPhone 13 Pro Max is Apple’s top-of-the-line smartphone and it includes three rear cameras and a LiDAR scanner to enable advanced augmented reality (AR) experiences. At first glance, that’s what Keijiro Takahashi’s incredible video shared on Twitter appears to demonstrate. Looking like something out of The Matrix, or perhaps some unseen quantum reality, the video shows a walk along streets and past buildings that are made of glowing sparks and illuminated blocks, that flow and shimmer as the iPhone 13 Pro Max passes through. The visual effects software that Takahashi developed to create this video effect is known as Bibcam and is available as a public domain GitHub project. The Unity Editor is needed to build the GitHub project for iOS.
