Augmented reality coding?

A feature I’d like to see in Hopscotch is:

Being able to code projects you can play in augmented reality (AR).

I’d use it for this type of project:

Awesome city-building type games.

Here are some examples of Hopscotch code that could be improved if we had this:

I don’t know what code could be improved if we had this.

Here is an example design I’ve made:

I haven’t really made a design (it could be similar to the existing design for drafts though), but here’s how it’d work:

Well, you’d hit Play like normal after coding in a (larger maybe?) editor, and then after it made sure the app had access to the camera, the cam would turn on and show the world around you, and you could play the game, like an app I know that identifies a flat surface, and lets you place objects you own in the game there.

There could be special Whens for AR, too, like “when face is seen,” “when device sees movement,” “when bumpy surface is seen,” etc.

I’ve seen something similar in another programming languages, it looks like this:

I haven’t seen anything similar in other programming languages.

Well, this would be a really cool feature for HS to have but it doesn’t seem like it would be something the developers would spend time on (this seems very time consuming to implement), as opposed to other things they have on their roadmap.

Now, cloud variables would be useful.

I believe there’s already a topic for that, though.

That’s interesting! Don’t think we’ll be able to implement it in the nearest future, but something to think about.

This would be awesome for sure, but as indicated by @Ana, it is a pretty difficult thing to do.

This is such a good idea! I could code some pretty cool projects with this!

It’s difficult, but it is possible. How are other companies able to create it? If others can, THT can. Maybe it’s too difficult now but it might be implemented sometime in the future.

How exactly would it work?
