What is LiDAR

LiDAR which is also known for ‘Light Detection And Ranging’, computes the total time taken by the light to reach an object then reflects back. This increases the depth of mapping and results in the creation of new AR tools that connect and respond to the real-world object in a better manner.

In the example shown by TikTok, the new technology responds to the real world. the glitters Fall down to the couch, the floor, and the person within the frame. Another important thing to notice is that when the person left from the frame, the glitters over his shoulder and his head falls away from his place.
