Apple's 'One More Thing' event invite has an AR Easter egg

Continuing a trend, the "One More Thing" Apple Silicon event web page hides an AR object, and looks similar to a MacBook opening its display.

When on the Apple event webpage, users can click on the Apple logo in the invite to enter an AR view on iOS and iPadOS devices. On macOS, users can download the file and view the animation in Quick Look.

The large Apple logo loops through an animation that looks similar to opening and closing a MacBook display. When open the colors of the invitation radiate outward like a bright and glowing screen. You can place the USDZ file and view it in 360-degrees in AR, which was introduced in an update in iOS 12.

Apple is expected to announce a new MacBook and 24-inch iMac using Apple Silicon Processors.

    Same here. Works fine in both Safari and Chrome on my iPhone 8, but not on my iPad Air 3.

    What else goes up and down aside from a laptop screen?

    The trunk of an Apple Car!

    That was brilliant. But so was my innuendo.

    Does anyone know any good apps to author stuff like this? I've used Adobe Aero but that app is not exactly great. I've created some USDZ files in a 3D app, but that's really not great either. I've looked at Apple's Reality Composer, but that's not exactly user-friendly. The results also don't come close to the animated stuff Apple is doing with the invitations.

    Also interesting that the back of the Apple image shows '11.10' in the source USDZ file.
