Build real world apps on iOS using ARKit, SceneKit and SpriteKit - includes all source codes and 3D design files

What you'll learn:
  • Understand ARKit and SceneKit using swift
  • Build Augmented reality apps for clients
  • Make money in the new AR Category on the Appstore
  • Create 3D shapes in Augmented reality both in code and using the scene editor from Xcode
  • Measure real distances using the iPhone's camera
  • Interact with 3D objects
  • Add 3D objects to the real world through the phone : on the floor, on a table, on the wall...
  • Detect horizontal and vertical planes in the real world
  • Detect images in the real world
  • Create optical illusions
  • Add animations to 3D objects
  • Use spacial 3D audio in your AR scenes
  • Learn how to use Physics to create games
  • Learn how to use particles to create snow, rain, fire, confettis, and much much more

* Now including Face tracking *

ARKit was launchedin June 2017 by Appleand instantly became thelargest ARplatform with 350 million compatible devices. ARKitmakes it much easier for developers to code augmented reality apps than ever before.

Learn the future of programming with ARKit today and be in demand!

AR is disruptingthe world and will become mass market very soon. Don't wait for the crowd, be a leader and innovator in this new exciting field :

Augmented reality is going to change everything we know in the next few years


This course will teach you:

● How todesign 3D objects, andtextwith andwithout code

●Primitive Geometries, colors/textures/materials, lights, animations, physics and particle systems.

● Physically based rendering for realistic appearance

● How to use Scenekit's built in Physics engine

ARKit fundamentals :

● Surface recognition (floor, tables, walls...)

● Image detection (posters, paintings, postcards, magazines, book covers, business cards...)

● Spacial sound for immersive experiences

● Image detection and Tracking

● Automatic environment texture

● Face tracking and animation (requires iPhone X, Xs, XsPlus or Xr)


You cantry all the ARKitprojects you will learn right now on your device. Look for "Augmented Reality App" on the App Store.


All source codes and 3D design materials are included and easy to re-use in your commercial apps and projects - This will save you countless hours, which is priceless
Furthermore, you will learn the key concepts of good user experience in Augmented Reality apps!

People are hungry for amazing AR experiences but today there is a lack of "killer AR Apps" on the App Store. This is a huge opportunity to get in early before it becomes a crowded space!

Big brands are looking for skilledARKit developers as augmented reality is already available on 380 million iOS devices, but the technology is so new that there is a lack of trained ARKit iOSdevelopers.

AR Games are gaining in popularity since Pokemon Go, but even in gaming, there is a shortage of good AR apps that people are raving about. What is your app idea? Could it make you the next app millionaire?!


After completing this course, you will be ahead of the game! The Mobile AR Market is about to grow exponentially, so you will be in a great position to dominate the AR app section of the AppStore and hopefully make your creative ideas come to reality within a few weeks thanks to ARKit.

ARKit is here to stay, and we are only at the beginning as all the big brands are investing heavily in Augmented Reality platforms. Apple is betting big on ARKit and wants to feature your awesome ARKit apps as soon as possible!



● Design 3D Shapes and add colors using the scene editor (no code required, infinite possibilities!)
● Build the exact same with code only using SWIFT 4.1 & the SceneKit Framework from Apple.
● Create Animated scenes using SCNActions (with and without code again!)
● Physics


● Horizontal surface detection
● Vertical surface detection
● Image detection
● Shadows
● Occlusion : Make objects disappear behind a door or under a table
● Spacial Sound : For truly immersive Augmented Reality experiences, use 3D sound to delight your users
● AR Game
● Design with particle systems : add realistic smoke, fire, stars and much more to your AR Scenes
● Measure real world distances with iPhone.
● Create optical illusions!

● Face tracking and animation

● Play videos in AR

● Using Arkit for virtual reality :play 360 videos


● display 2D content and create ARapps using SpriteKit

Introduction to SpriteKit in a simple section.Learn how to use SpriteKit with ARKit to display simple 2Delements like text and emojis.


Augmented Reality programming can be daunting at first sight but this course will give you the confidence to build yourown ARapps and grow your coding skills using Apple's latest and hottest frameworkARKit, step by step, at your own pace.

●We will design a 3D drone from scratch in Xcode and make it fly around the user

●We will throw fireballs to Destroy a pyramid of bricks, right from your living room!

●We will build a portable hole like in Roger Rabbit! (that one is a challenge actually, are you up for it?)

●We will create and animate a 3DFace using Apple's latest hardware :the iPhone X, Xs, Xs Plus or Xr and perform ARon the selfie camera on people's face like in Instagram stories and Snapchat. We will learn how to use camera filters and lenses to interact with people's live emotions.

If you read all the way to this line, you know this is the right course for you! And after all, there is no risk as you can ask a full refund with 30 days if the course is not for you... I'm sure you'll love it though! Ihad so much fun recording it and can't wait to see what youbuild too!

Come and learn ARKit and start your Augmented Reality Career today!
