Today, developer Rinat Khanov has unveiled his new augmented reality app, MeasureKit.
Motherboard
I'm getting ready to welcome my first child to the world soon and have found myself measuring a lot of things as of late. Maybe that's why this video of an augmented reality measuring tape application caught my eye.
Curbed
If this digital measuring tape is any indication of the practical future of augmented reality, then there's a lot to look forward to. Called AR Measure and developed by Laan Labs, the coming-soon iOS app turns any iPhone or iPad into a virtual ruler that can measure just about anything (within reason, of course).

SketchAR

Start drawing easily using augmented reality

SketchAR puts virtual images on paper to let you trace drawings from your phone. SketchAR is for those who have always wanted but have never been able to draw. Also, the app is designed for professional artists as a simple and convenient way to trace sketches onto any desired surface (e.g., canvas, wall, etc.).

ArchDaily
The ability to draw well is one of the most coveted skills in architecture. Unfortunately for those without an innate gift for sketching, it's also one of the most difficult to learn-even if it can, contrary to popular opinion, be learned with commitment and practice.
UploadVR
Update: This article originally published on January 6th, 2017 but as of today, April 18th, 2017, SketchAR is officially available for free on the iOS App Store. Download it today and get to drawing! Original: Augmented reality's potential is immense.

You may not know or care about Project Tango, Google's depth-sensing camera system, which can map augmented reality visuals onto the real world. You may not care about the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro smartphone, which is the first consumer smartphone to have Tango baked right in, either.
Gizmodo
Have you ever dreamed about impressing the people around your neighborhood with preachy Banksy-inspired graffiti? SketchAR is an augmented reality drawing app that uses a smartphone and its camera to let you trace images. And when used with a device that supports Google's Project Tango technology, suddenly anyone can become a tagger who doesn't suck.

Dance Reality

Dance practice in augmented reality

Dance Reality uses Apple's latest augmented reality technology to place footprints on the floor in front of you. You look through your phone to step on the footprints, then you follow the animation to practice dance patterns (see video). Train as a lead, as a follow, or as a couple, and choose a speed that works for you. Practice makes perfect!

ARKit has looked like a promising platform for augmented reality in the few short weeks since the first two beta versions of iOS 11 were released to developers. But when iOS 11 officially drops this fall, it's more likely that we - both consumers and developers - are still going to be figuring out what to use it for.
Mashable
While we've now had several weeks to get a feel for iOS 11, there's still one big, unanswered question about the update: augmented reality. Namely, whether or not the apps developers are building using Apple's ARKit will live up to the hype.

Got two left feet? Want to wow your partner with your best moves? This new app built on Apple's ARKit debuts a brilliant new way to teach people to dance. All you'll need is an iPhone. Dance Reality, as the app is called, was concieved by two Seattle-based salsa dancers following the debut of Apple's new augmented reality platform earlier this year.
Road to VR
Apple's ARKit has been out for developers since it was announced last month. Because of the mind-boggling number of iPhones and iPads capable of running ARKit, the new tool is already spreading its augmented reality wings across the Internet thanks to a diverse set of developers.
Computerworld
I appear to be slightly obsessed with ARKit. You see, what Apple has unleashed with this new augmented reality (AR) platform is an opportunity for developers of all stripes to get really creative with what these technologies may actually mean. Think about reactions shortly after WWDC in June.
GeekWire
If the release of iOS 11 and Apple's new ARKit - which lets developers create augmented reality apps - has you dancing over to the App Store, perhaps learning a few steps while you're there would be a good idea.

After iOS 11 dropped today, the internet went to work dissecting its best features. And if we're being honest, there's a lot to like. But one of my favorite things about iOS 11 didn't come from Apple; it's an awesome new ruler built on its augmented reality framework: ARKit.

MakeSpace AR Plan Estimator

Measure your stuff in AR to get an accurate plan estimate.

The AR Plan Estimator is a way for users to quickly estimate the storage plan size they will need for their stuff by pointing their phone around the room and tracing things with their finger in AR. It is difficult to conceptualize the physical space needed to store your things, and as soon as we saw ARKit at WWDC, we knew there was an opportunity.

Drew Tunney- Co Founder, Voro
AR that finally solves a real problem that I have. Such a no brainer. I see this being a central piece of technology for people storing and moving larger items.
MakeSpace® Blog
We always want you to have the best storage experience possible. Starting today, that includes you being able to quickly measure your stuff and get a storage plan estimate - in only a few seconds, and from the comfort of your iPhone. All thanks to the new MakeSpace iOS app.

TechCrunch
Apple just released iOS 11 to the public, and a big feature is ARKit, the company's SDK that lets developers easily create cool augmented reality apps. Even though Apple announced ARKit a few months ago, there aren't a ton of good options available right now to test out AR on your phone.

Not tried this one out yet but looks perfect for getting accurate idea of what an object will look once in your house. It's so easy to assume things will be too big /small even when you have the measurements. Wish these apps had been around when I moved house last year!
