Apple AR: Creepy Effects Make Surfaces Bubble & Boil

Creepy Effects Make Surfaces Bubble & Boil

This man's effect using Apple ARKit is both really cool and really freaky. In his tweet, John van der Zwaag said that this "alters reality" rather than just adding to it.

The effect allows the user, on their iPhone, to tap or drag along the surface that it's projected onto. When you tap or drag, the surface will seemingly rise, fall, and squirm to your desire. It creates the creepy illusion that the surface has come alive or that there's something alive running around beneath it. Who knows what other surfaces this could be used on?

While there may not be too many practical uses for it, this effect does have the potential to create some awesome, disturbing special effects.
