Somewhere in the universe, eavesdropping a dialog between Captain Picard and his crew... „Captain, this is fascinating! This tool knows the names of the peaks I am looking at.“
Have you ever wondered "What is the name of that prominent peak over there?" - find the answer simply by taking a look through the camera of your iPhone.
Peak.ar prompts the names and heights of the peaks surrounding you as augmented reality overlay of the camera view.
Peak.ar 2.0 improves user experience with a brand new algorithm for adaptive distance selection allowing to prompt all the surrounding peaks on your screen without obstructing the panorama. The nearest and most prominent peaks get automatically selected. To get the names of more distant peaks simply turn the wheel to the appropriate distance segment.
You can manually adjust the heading by tilting your phone sidewards.
This device uses the magnetometer to determine your current viewing direction.
Witness the glory of the gyroscope, as the app uses the sensor values to support the magnetometer in calculating the viewing direction more precisely.
You can find the advanced Peak.ar settings in the "Settings" app of your iPhone. There you can change e.g. the maximum line of sight, change the display of distances to miles.
