ADR-0018 OS for Magic Mirror App

Date2021-05-25
StatusAccepted

Context

Android’s ARCore does not offer body tracking capabilities. This is because of inconsistencies in various manufacturers’ hardware, and more specifically the IMUs in the devices. On the other hand, Apple’s ARKit does provide body tracking functionality and this feature is accessible through Unity AR Foundation’s API.

Decision

The Magic Mirror app will be developed and available only for iOS.

Consequences

Unless ARCore adds body tracking functionality in the near future, the Magic Mirror app will not be accessible by Android users.
