Tim Cook, CEO of Apple is on record as saying Augmented Reality is “a big idea like the smartphone” and that “it's for everyone, I think AR is that big, it's huge.” That gives you pause, doesn’t it? We at Pixie have believed in the power – and magic! – of Augmented Reality (AR) for a while now. AR already had a game-changing impact on Pixie as it is part of the technology that is used to show you the exact location of lost items, but what you have seen is just the beginning.
Breathtaking new things are coming to the Pixie experience and while they aren’t available quite yet, we want to give a sneak peek of what’s on the horizon. Thanks to tools in Apple’s upcoming iOS11, Pixie’s augmented reality will be taking a major leap forward in the Fall.
What does this mean for you? Well, Pixie’s revolutionary Augmented Reality interface will be getting an upgrade, making it cooler and easier than ever before. You’ll be able to seamlessly search and view your items now with new 3D representations of your missing keys, wallet, backpack etc... and everything from the “Pixie Dust” to our “X marks the spot” will look disarmingly realistic, as if they were actually in the room with you.
All of this comes together to make a completely new Pixie experience that we are extremely excited to share with you. The new Apple iOS11 won’t be out until the Fall but you can see a sneak peak of the new Pixie experience and since words can’t fully capture it, check out this video:
Let us know what you think!
