Before Tesla could launch its upcoming Model 3 in the market, Norway-based 3D designer Jelmer Verhoog used ARKit to create his own augmented reality version of the Tesla Model 3. Posting a video of the ARKit-created app, Verhoog showed off how it allows you to choose the color of your Model 3 while seeing how it looks in your own driveway. His AR Model 3 looks incredibly realistic. Additionally his app allows you to turn the vehicle’s lights on, and even drive it a few feet, giving you a full sense of what a Model 3 might look like if you buy the $35,000 vehicle set to hit streets in 2018.

At the end of the demo video, Verhoog says he’s looking for permission from Musk or Tesla before launching the app for iOS 11. However, clearly, this can be seen as one of the best examples of the potential ARKit holds.
Announced earlier last month at Apple s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), ARKit enables developers to bring to life augmented reality products such as games, experiences, and other such content. With ARKit, developers can build apps such as Pokemon Go, albeit with a much more enhanced output. Currently still in public beta mode, ARKit is scheduled to launch by end of this year.
