We helped Google showcase the possibilities of ARCore's latest developer release at IO2019.
The Developer Sandbox
A cohesive space gave developers a chance to experience the APIs first-hand: Environmental HDR, Cloud Anchors, Augmented Images, Scene Viewer and Augmented Faces.

Life's a garden. Dig it, together.
AR experiences are more fun when they’re shared. ARCore's Cloud Anchors API let's users create collaborative experiences that Android and iOS users can share. To showcase this, we created a digital ecosystem that let participants grow a garden together.
With persistent tracking, the physical world can become a video game by relaying the position of digital objects to every device in real-time. As users moved around the physical table, magical seeds promoted places in the garden users could plant. Each position spawned a new plant species creating a unique garden with each collective session.

From bean to cup.
Augmented reality provides new ways for brands to showcase their value to customers. With ARCore's Aumgented Images API you can create spatial experiences using a simple image. To demonstrate a retail use-case, we created an interactive walkthrough that gave users a novel perspective of a Breville at-home espresso machine.
With gaze activated feature points, users could explore the machine physically, while visualizing the espresso making process from their own perspective.

Look, no depth sensor.
Augmented Faces API gives developers a high-quality digital face mesh to create filters and games without a front facing depth sensor. To show developers the mesh capabilities, we created two face filters that promoted mouth triggers, head position, and a lot of fun.
