Snapchat this week released a new 3D Paint feature that allows you to draw on objects in augmented reality.
Snapchat is introducing one more way for you to get creative in AR – a new 3D Paint feature that lets you draw 3D objects on your face – or on objects in your environment. This is done using only your mobile device’s front or back-facing camera to capture the scene, and your finger to draw.
The feature was announced on Twitter this week, by Andrew McPhee, a Product Leader and Inventor at Snap, who explained that it was “a fun new way to make personalised AR” on Snapchat.
If you want to try the feature, go to Lenses and press the “Create” button to access.
The feature looks a lot like the AR Doodle feature found on Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10. Of course, the Snapchat version isn’t as sophisticated and you can’t be as exact in what you draw. 3D Paint also may remind you of another AR drawing feature on Snapchat – World Lenses. The new feature brings more freedom to drawing in AR space.
It is currently only available on iOS at the moment – and will be rolling out on Android as well, soon.
