Sketchfab now supports ARKit, putting Tilt Brush and Oculus Medium works into the real world

If you’ve been following out Sketchfab Favs feature, you’ll know that the platform is home to nearly two million 3D models and artworks, made in apps like Google’s Tilt Brush, Oculus’ Medium, and Gravity Sketch as well as more traditional software. From today, these creations can be placed in the real world.

Sketchfab has just updated its iOS app to include support for Apple’s ARKit. That means that users can select any of the creations currently live on the platform, and project it into the real world through an iPhone or iPad display. As such, animated characters can come to life inside real-world environments, and VR artists have an entirely new way to explore their work and others’.

All you need to do is load up any Sketchfab model inside the app and then tap and AR icon, just like you’d tap a VR icon to view models in headsets. ARKit will allow you to walk around the model and get up close with it, essentially using your phone as a camera.

Sketchfab says Android integration via Google’s ARCore is also on the way.

Samsung’s phone-as-desktop concept now runs Linux

Samsung's DeX is a clever way to turn your phone into a desktop computer. However, there's one overriding problem: you probably don't have a good reason to use it instead of a PC. And Samsung is trying to fix that. It's unveiling Linux on Galaxy, an app-based offering that (surprise) lets you run Linux distributions on your phone. Ostensibly, it's aimed at developers who want to bring their work environment with them wherever they go. You could dock at a remote office knowing that your setup will be the same as usual.

It's not quite the same as your typical Ubuntu or Debian install. Linux on Galaxy launches through an app, and it's using the same kernel as Android itself in order to maintain performance. And it almost goes without saying that you'll really want a DeX setup, since most Linux apps are expecting a large screen, mouse and keyboard.

As it stands, you'll have to be patient. Linux on Galaxy isn't available right now -- you can sign up for alerts, but it's not ready for public consumption. Even so, this is good evidence that Samsung thinks of DeX as considerably more than a novelty feature. It may be a long, long while (if ever) before many people are using their phones as desktops, but Samsung is willing to gradually build up its ecosystem and eventually give you an incentive to take a second look.
