Apple’s new ARKit framework, debuting in iOS 11, is going to open up loads of new possibilities for what your phone can do. First up? Replace most of the tape measure aisle at the hardware store. TapMeasure, as the name suggests, lets you make measurements of both objects and rooms with just a couple taps. Tap around a piece of artwork on your wall and it becomes a virtual laser level, letting you know when you’ve got it just right, and by tapping on every corner, you can get accurate 3D floor maps of your room that you can export to SketchUp for further editing.
