A new optical illusion was created with Apple’s ARKit. It comes from a Swedish artist using the tool’s face-tracking feature and the 3-D camera found on the iPhone X.
As Mashable first covered, Peder Norrby was able to adjust the iPhone X image by tracking a user’s eye position. In doing so, they created the illusion that you’re looking down into a three-dimensional hole.
Take a look:

Very cool, no?
First announced at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June, ARKit takes advantage of the dual optical image stabilization on the iPhone X.
In January, Apptopia noted 1,000 apps were now using Apple’s ARKit. At the time, 30 percent of the apps using the tool were those in the Game category. Apps in the Other category accounted for 24.2 of the apps with Entertainment and Utilities right behind.
