Artist Uses iPhone X’s Front-Facing Camera To Create Wild, Mind-Tripping UI
You’ve seen the
Japanese app developer who used the iPhone X to completely camouflage his face
and the studio that used that same phone to make motion capture that would’ve cost millions
It seems that
the wild things achievable through the iPhone X doesn’t stop here. Instead of using its depth sensor for frivolous animoji, media artist Peder Norrby
has used it to create the trompe-l’oeil effect. This classic art technique deceives viewers’ eyes by creating the optical illusion that 3-D objects exist on a 2-D plane.
Norrby created the app
‘TheParallaxView’, which he uses to make the illusion of depth via 3-D head-tracking on the iPhone X. This enables him to transform the gadget’s screen into outrageous UI that mimics an infinite void.

The app has been
submitted to the App Store and is currently awaiting review. Norrby announced that he’s “working on an article to describe the method in detail,” and hopes to make the source code available soon.
