So just last week, we went around town to challenge Malaysians to draw the Petronas Twin Towers IN THE AIR. Needless to say, some ended up drawing… furry animals?!
This week, we’re gonna show you what happened when we got them to draw out the shape of Malaysia… using their non-dominant hands!
Why Cilisos so kepoh, keep asking people to draw stuff?!
Well that’s cause our friends at Samsung recently lent us the awesome new Samsung Galaxy Note10+ to play around, and… for a buncha starving writers with basic, lousy old phones (cos Cilisos srsly pay potatoes), this upgrade was one we couldn’t waste.
And you guys know us la… Cilisos likes doing fun, creative stuff, so the phone made the perfect fit for us as it’s powerful enough to be equal parts productive and creative. Not only does it have the enhanced S Pen, a pro-grade camera and a whoooole buncha other cool features…. it also has the AR Doodle – a super canggih function that lets you doodle stuff in MID AIR.
To see how it works, just see how our respondents tried to draw the map of Malaysia! But to make it a little harder, we made them draw it with their left hands, hehe:
Here’s the full video! 🙂 (Watch the video k, Cilisos team battled through the haze without N95 mask to shoot this T_T )
The AR Doodle is actually RIDICULOUSLY fun
As you guys know, augmented reality has invaded our daily lives for a while now. Thanks to technology, there are so many ways where we can utilise this, from playing Pokemon Go to pinning cute stickers on Instastories… so it totally makes sense for Samsung to include this innovation in their Note10+. (But do note that this is more towards an S Pen function – you won’t be able to utilize this without the pen.)
In the ‘face‘ function, the camera will recognise a face or a square. The doodles that you draw will then follow the face as it moves:
In the ‘Everywhere‘ function, you can do the same but with a space in front of you. (You’ll need to be connected to the internet for this.) And this is SUPER cool cause you can move around and see the doodle in 3D – front, back, up, down, left, right, aiyah just gerak-gerak a bit and you’ll see:
This means you can also do really creative stuff, like building obstacle courses on the go. We can already see this as something we’d use to spice up our HIIT workouts:
And what’s life without sharing… you can easily share your AR Doodles with friends or on mobile-integrated AR drawing albums.
The function is always impressive at first try, but even after using over and over again, the novelty somehow hasn’t worn off…. for us, at least. 🙂 More on how to use it here.
Overall, it’s a pretty sleek new line of smartphones
We’re sure you’re aware that apart from the Note10+, there’s also the Note10. For the first time ever, the Note10 comes in two sizes so you can choose one that suits you just right. (Note10 at 6.3-inch, Note10+ at 6.8-inch.)
