Tastes Like Burning: an Example of ARKit and iOS Particle Systems

We have reached a peak in computer science. I can make fire come out of my face. Apple has made it simple with an iPhone X to track a user’s face and use a particle systems file to add special effects.

In this post, I will demonstrate how to “breathe fire” using Xcode 9.4.1, Swift 4.1.2, and iOS 11.4.1 on my iPhone X. For this tutorial, you will need a physical device with a TrueDepth camera. A virtual notch on the simulator will not cut it. The completed project is available on GitHub.
