Apple has recently introduced the so-called Vision Pro and is setting its sights on the next big thing in photography: 3D photos and video. The device's potential for capturing and experiencing spatial memories cannot be ignored. Read more.
What Is The Apple's Vision Pro
The Vision Pro is a device that captures spatial photos and videos in 3D. While it may seem like a novelty item, it has highlighted the potential of 3D photography for capturing memories in a whole new way. It is focused on the playback experience and is also an example of the need for current phone cameras to evolve to shoot 3D photos. The technology shows that spatial photos and 3D scanning apps are likely to co-exist in many apps.
The Role Of Smartphones In Capturing Spatial Memories
While the Vision Pro is an exciting development, smartphones are better suited to capturing spatial memories than a device that users have to wear on their faces.
However, current smartphones lack the processing power and sensor fidelity required for realistic 3D reproduction, therefore, Apple needs to work hard to get the average person excited about spatial memories as iOS developers are.
The 3D snapping has been hailed as the next big thing since the arrival of digital photography, and with Apple's entry into the game, it's only a matter of time before it takes off.
The Potential Of Spatial Memories
It might not be as simple as adding another camera to the iPhone 15, but spatial memories may take off in 2024, as the arrival of the Vision Pro has sparked excitement among 3D photo and video apps like Polycam and Halide.
The potential for capturing and experiencing memories in a new way is endless, and we can't wait to see what comes next.
