TikTok kicks off 2021 with new AR filter that takes advantage of Apple’s LiDAR module

The social network TikTok has finally decided to take advantage of the LiDAR technology implemented in the iPhone Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, launching a new AR filter (augmented reality) that manages to take advantage of the new technology, resulting in a much more realistic effect capable of interacting with the environment .

For now, the only filter is a new year celebration ball, which explodes after a countdown, releasing hundreds of confetti. As you can see in the tweet published by TikTok on Twitter, the integration of Apple’s LiDAR system allows to achieve a much more realistic result.

To ring in 2021 we released our first AR effect on the new iPhone 12 Pro, using LiDAR technology which allows us to create effects that interact with your environment – visually bridging the digital and physical worlds. We’re excited to develop more innovative effects in 2021! pic.twitter.com/6yFD2FfHta

After the explosion of confetti, we see that the AR filter is able to recognize not only the exact position of the user, but also of all the objects present around him. The accumulation of confetti in his arms is evident, then falls to the sofa as soon as it leaves the scene.

TikTok is not the first social network to take advantage of Apple’s LiDAR module

Although it can be considered innovative, it is important to note that TikTok was not the first social network to launch an AR filter that can take advantage of the advanced capabilities of Apple’s LiDAR system. The first social network to do so was the inevitable Snapchat, which launched the first filters in October 2020.

Although TikTok has not revealed concrete information about the plans for 2021, it confirmed that it will launch many other filters that take advantage of LiDAR.

Hopefully, they will be able to considerably improve the performance of AR filters, since although impressive, their first filter is not as realistic as one would expect.

In the example published on Twitter, it is easy to see that the user and the sofa are not in the same depth plane, making little sense that the sofa just “receives” confetti after the user leaves the scene. Still, it is still an AR filter that offers a much more realistic end result.
