The augmented reality version of Snap’s Spectacles was launched with numerous examples of how creators can use the wearable to alter the world around them. Nevertheless, weeks after the initial launch, we are starting to see examples of the new kinds of immersive experiences made possible through the device.
In one such instance, Los Angeles-based technical designer Katherine Harris has used a pair of Spectacles to develop a new kind of teaching tool.
Harris is a veteran from Microsoft and is currently employed at Magnopus, an immersive experience production studio. She created Dance Helper to assist the rhythmically challenged to hit the proper steps when the music starts.
Snap’s Lens Studio played a significant role in helping her create the tool. Harris described it as an ideal platform for immersive development, even for those without coding skills.
“This device shows that regular people can now start adopting this technology,” said Harris in a new video showcasing Dance Helper. “If you’re a creator, or an engineer, or a designer, or just interested in augmented reality, this is a really easy, great way to break into this new interaction.”
However, there is no news yet on the Spectacle hitting the shelves anytime soon for the retail consumers. So, the Dance Helper app is really just a demo at this point. Nevertheless, it is a vital example of the limitless possibilities of the combination of Spectacles and Lens Studio in the future.
