Techcrunch, the tech portal, posted a promo video on 3D drawings (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYqe3smoois) on YouTube.

Facebook is calling its AR drawing feature "3D drawing", and it will let users doodle on images they capture using Facebook Camera while clicking or after. Facebook Stories will now allow a user to scribble or draw shapes on videos of the world around them. According to the report, the camera now understands and detects the objects and surfaces in the room including walls and tables to create a 3D spec to wrap the drawing on them.

Facebook has also confirmed the fact that the Boomerang will be replacing the looping GIF creation in the Facebook camera; the Boomerang feature, however, is already available on Instagram. The doodles will then stick to the objects captured in the frame, and users can move around to see their artwork from different angles - a bit like virtual graffiti. It's rolling out to users over the coming weeks. Currently, it only does that when it's confident about the object recognition, such as in optimal light conditions.

Meanwhile, Jinson Johnson smashed the long-standing 1500m national record and finished fifth in the finals. The Haryana lad shot to fame with his record-breaking throw in 2016 IAAF World U20 Championships (Poland).

Facebook is also bringing Instagram's Boomerang feature to Stories.

The social media giant plans to boost AR with a new drawing option among others on Facebook Camera. Yes, the officials have reported that soon Instagram users will be able to download a copy of the content they have uploaded to the social networking site. The social media company is now testing different ways to encourage more people into its Stories.

Such a tool would make it easier for people to move to competing photo social networks, much like Facebook's own Download Your Information tool, which has been touted as a way to #DeleteFacebook.
