Video : Detect Real time movement of the magnet with your iPhone

iPhone lovers are used to with comments like, hey you can get a better phone with higher specs in low prices and etc. This debate is not going to end this easy but those having technical ‘know how’ always bring something innovative and different and give you the chance to show off with your iPhone.

The video which we are sharing is one of the same kind. Ivo Leko, a Senior iOS engineer, has brought this time a very innovative video about the sensors being used in iPhones. The video he released on Youtube shows how to take advantage of the sensors in iPhones.

You can read about the array of sensors being used in iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus specifications but this is something which most probably Apple did not realize itself as it did not advertise about it. Leko tells us to utilize the power of this sensor grid and shows how iPhone tracks the movement of the magnet at real-time. Surprisingly iPhone not only tracked the 2D movement but also the 3D movement as well.

This video is a little demonstration of library Ivo is developing in objective C. Which allows user to detect the movement of the magnet using his iPhone by taking advantage of magnetometer, accelerometer and microphone.
Well now that you have seen this what is the advantage of it? Leko shows us the usage of it as well i.e. the ‘magnetic stylus’. Yes you can make a powerful magnet into a stylus for your iPhone, you can develop virtual keyboards, game controllers (Joy sticks??) and a lot of other possibilities are hidden.

Enjoy the video and do visit Ivo Leko website where he claims he is working on something big!

This is working concept and demonstration of completely new way of interaction with device. Idea is to create software library which will be available to other developers so that they can do amazing things. It is still under development.
