Apple’s 33rd edition of the annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) is set to commence on June 6. Like every year before the conference, there are rumours about what the company has to offer. This time, a report by MacRumors suggests that Apple has created a package of trading cards that you can view in augmented reality, rising the speculation that the company might introduce NFTs in the future.
Memojis have been a common feature of Apple’s marketing strategy for years. However, this year Apple decided to add an augmented reality (AR) element twist to it. Interesting, the cards also look similar to avatars of RTFKT Studios’ CloneX and animated cards of Gary Vaynerchuk’s VeeFriends Series 2. This further caused the rise in speculation within the NFT space about the future possibilities of an Apple NFT.
According to Cointelegraph, when the cards are placed on the surface using the AR interface. Users can tap it and open it up and see an array of colourful Memoji faces. If you swipe it, you can go back to the cards to view the other options.
Every time you open the card pack, you will get three separate cards, and there are at least nine card options to choose from. It is worth noting that this is one of the more detailed interactive AR experiences that Apple has designed for one of its events, as many have only featured creative Apple logos, as per MacRumors.
