George Kedenburg has become the latest Instagram sensation due to the fact that his company’s product design has created AR effects for Instagram reminiscent of older technology to soothe those feeling nostalgic about the past. These Instagram AR effects comprise a wide array of models, including effects based on old Operating Systems.
For instance, one of the effects is a simulation of an old desktop PC with the classic Microsoft Paint tab open. Other effects include a discharging battery that can be used in various contexts.
Although innovative, these effects are not the first of their kind. For instance, Kylie Jenner and her team have come up with AR effects that allow prospective customers to test out the shades of lipsticks before making their purchase.
The custom AR designs announced at the 2018 F8 Conference, have been gaining popularity rapidly and are also reaching a broader base since their inception.
