Have you ever seen how LIDAR works on the iPhone 12 Pro или iPad Pro?

Lidar on the iPhone

Many will say that the thing, of course, is cool, but only a few will need it. Now imagine that #apple will scan the whole world with our iPhones and create a virtual copy of it. And then… They will release #appleglasses and you will be seeing the virtual world through them, physically moving through the real one. How do you like this future!!?

Sorry, guys. It was just a thought and it’s not about big article about LIDAR.


Lidar is a method for measuring distances by illuminating the target with laser light and measuring the reflection with a sensor. Differences in laser return times and wavelengths can then be used to make digital 3-D representations of the target. It has terrestrial, airborne, and mobile applications. Wikipedia
