JigSpace creates software that can be used in augmented reality presentations.
Co-founder Zac Duff said: "This is a big moment for augmented reality, and for JigSpace. Today marks the convergence of the critical hardware and software elements required to make spatial computing ubiquitous - fast data-transfer, spatial awareness, people and environment occlusion, and the processing power to run it all - in one easy-to-use device.
"Jigs are a transformational knowledge experience that allow people to understand the world around them, faster. Today's Apple keynote demonstrated how easy Jigs are to create and use - all from an app on your iPhone."

Other software packages made by JigSpace include Jig Workshop which can be used to create and share presentations. The software is used to produce educational content, prototyping in lean manufacturing, product demonstrations, and for product training in manufacturing and engineering.
Some of the bigger users are Medtronic and Hino Trucks but there are also niche manufacturers like Swoop Aero (drones) or Triangle Waterquip (filtration) who use the software.
"Our vision is that no new product should launch without a Jig. Based on our early customer success and today's announcement by Apple, that vision is one step closer," said Duff.
"What we're most excited about is the utility that this unlocks. We've always believed that creating and sharing knowledge in 3D should be simple, useful, and delightful.
"Imagine a world where you can look at anything and ask, 'how does that work? What's that made of? How do I fix that?' and the answer is immediately available, right there in front of you. Well, that doesn't require imagination any longer. Just JigSpace and an iPhone."
