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.
