Augmented reality video brings a SpaceX rocket landing to your backyard

SpaceX keeps landing its rockets back on Earth after launching to space. But if you can’t make it to Florida for a Falcon 9 landing yourself, now you can check it out in augmented reality.

A new 20-second video shows off what it would be like to watch a miniature Falcon 9 first stage land on a virtual drone ship in a backyard pool.

Usually these kinds of landings happen on a square-shaped drone ship in the Pacific or Atlantic oceans, but hey, the scaled-down version is pretty awesome in its own right.

Developer Toms Garca created the augmented reality video using ARkit, a tool that allows users to create their own augmented reality videos.

Garca has also produced other space-themed augmented reality videos, including one showing off a mini-moon landing in a kitchen.
