AR Stormtrooper is a demo app that is designed to explore the possibilities of ARKit and SceneKit.

With iOS 11, ARKit, the Apple augmented reality library, is generating a lot of interests due to infinite - and playful - possibilities. SceneKit, the Apple 3d engine on another hand is a curious tool: very efficient but heavily relying on code and somehow different from Unity, to name one of the most popular 3d engine. So I had this simple idea to play with a Stormtrooper based on a complex 3d external asset and identify how it is different from Unity to work with such an asset in Scenekit.

Due to copyright, it won't end up on the app store, but I can send you a TestFlight invitation or you can download it on my Github: https://github.com/01000010x/ARStormtrooper

Basically, the app analyze your direct environment with the camera, display a Stormtrooper and make it interactive. There's five different animated interactions and the model pivot to face you in any circumstances.
