Apple’s rumored mixed reality headset may help you create apps even if you don’t know how to code. According to information sources, Apple is working on a tool that will allow anyone to create augmented reality apps with Siri. All you’d have to do is tell the voice assistant what you want, and you’d have digital animals scurrying around the room without the need for modelling, animation, or traditional programming software.
The AR creation tool is said to be based on Fabric Software technology, which Apple quietly purchased in 2017. The acquired startup’s Fabric Engine allows developers to create environments and objects automatically using procedural generation, a technique used in games such as No Man’s Sky. Peter Zion, a Fabric co-founder, is thought to be in charge of the development tool project. In 2016, Apple also purchased DigitalRune, a company that aimed to make 3D game development easier.
