A new augmented reality tape measure app will launch with the iOS 11 this fall

The iOS 11 launch this fall will be accompanied by the release of augmented reality apps. Among the new releases is AR Measure, a measuring tape app from Laan Labs.

Laan Labs credits the ARKit, which Apple released to developers in June, with the success of AR Measure. ARKit takes visual information from an iPhone camera and uses sensor readings from the accelerometer, gyroscope and compass to make tracking easier for applications.

To show how the virtual ruler compares to a physical one, Laan Labs posted a demo video to emphasize the accuracy of the AR Measure.
