Apple's ARKit could change the way we order food, make restaurant menus a thing of the past

Fancy ordering a special dish in a restaurant? Don't worry asking waiters about the menu, just open your phone and see all the dishes in realistic, extremely detailed 3D view on the plate right in front of you.
This is the future of Apple's ARKit, as an early demonstration of one possible use of ARKit, developed by Alper Guler, shows right above.
And it's impressive: the detailed food models not only look delicious, but they also rotate and you can take a look at them from all sides and get a realistic idea about the size of a portion. Now, surely, this might push restaurant owners to strive for better quality with every dish, which is also a good thing for customers.

Apple ARkit will make Apple the biggest AR player since iPhone 6s/SE or newer iPhones will work. I bet developers will develop a lot more and better AR apps on iOS. Btw, I use both iPhone 7 and Samsung S8. IOS apps in general are much more optimized and better.

I doubt it will a big thing in restaurants. Perhaps some places that try to be hip that adopts it. But most restaurants will stick to menu's that are classier and cheaper. They said the same thing about iBeacons back then and those have hardly been adopted.

So a generation of stupid people will be playing with their phones more than actually communicating with someone who is actually trying to do their job taking orders? Fantastic, so innovative, much convenient.
