“Animate Objects”, a brand-new augmented-reality experience featuring cartoons, is the latest feature available in the New Yorker app that uses AI and AR to unlock the secret thoughts of everyday inanimate objects and display them for the user via an animated thought bubble.

To unlock these quirky thoughts, you’ll need to get up and explore. Using the app, users can view a list of sentient objects within their vicinity; this could include a bookcase, a slice of pizza, lipstick, or a street sign.
