To celebrate the new NBA season a new official NBA AR App has arrived using Apple's ARKit
The NBA AR App offers unique AR experiences, starting with a pop-a-shot-type game that inspires you to play anywhere, anytime. Take your shots at an authentic NBA hoop as you compete against the clock -- and your friends -- to move up the global Game Center leaderboard.
“We’ve always said that basketball can be played virtually anywhere – and today that takes on an expanded meaning,” Melissa Rosenthal Brenner, NBA Senior Vice President, Digital Media, said in a statement. “Augmented reality presents a variety of fascinating engagement opportunities, so we hope our fans download the app and try out their skills wherever they might be.”
Feeling ambitious? Step back beyond the arc for a three-pointer. Even turn on your audio to listen to the crowd cheer you on in the middle of the action.
Personalize the game by adding your favorite NBA team’s logo to the court and colors to the gaming experience. Look around - there may even be a few surprises waiting for you.
Shooting really well? Playing in a really cool setting? Brag to your friends and family by saving and sharing a replay of your game on social media and other messaging platforms. Use the hashtag #NBAR.
