Siri may soon be able to fill your room with animals and birds

AS Apple’s AR headphones a few inches closer to release, the leaks are becoming a full flow. After a sprawling report describing the device itself, a new entry describes a unique system for building apps, even if you can’t write a single line of code.

Second The information, Apple is developing software that will simplify app creation so that users can quickly build their own augmented reality apps. So fast, in fact, that all they have to do is ask. As Wayne Ma explains: “With the software tools, Apple hopes that even people who don’t know computer code can tell the headset, via the Siri voice assistant, to create an AR app that can then be made available via the Apple App Store for more to download.”

The unique tool reportedly uses technology from Fabric Software, which Apple acquired in 2017. According to Crunchy base, the company’s Fabric Engine “specializes in 3D animation tools, VFX production, game development, and high-performance computing,” with a focus on procedural generation. The popular survival game No man’s sky uses a similar system to generate a nearly infinite world with 18 quintillion planets to explore.

Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who has leaked numerous details about the device, did not confirm this rumor. Indeed, inside a report this weekendsaid Apple does not yet have “a true ‘killer app’ for the device” and is moving towards “immersive video viewing, tight integration with other Apple products and advanced VR-based FaceTime calling” as its main appeal to customers .

The information states that users will be able to use the software to create an app “with virtual pets that move around a room and on or around real-life objects without the need to design the pet from scratch and calculate its movement in a 3D space with obstacles.” The report claims that while the tool would be geared towards developers, all users would be able to scan objects for use in their AR world.

The latest rumors claim that Apple is planning to release its so-called Reality One headset, which could cost up to $2,999, at a dedicated spring event.
