Innovative Technology of the Week: Augmented Reality in your Bathroom
Here at JBKnowledge, we love augmented reality. That’s why we couldn’t resist sharing the news about an app that will use augmented reality to give customers the ability to view products in their home before they buy them.
The app, from Bathrooms.com, is free to download and using it is simple. The only thing the user has to do is print off a “marker” so the app can identify where to locate the product.
“The “marker” is important because it gives each product a real-world location, enabling you to walk around the product in 3D and look at it from all angles or even zoom in and out, just like you would with a physical object. This helps customers to clearly see if a product will fit into the space they have and work with their existing décor.”
The use of this technology to personalize the experience of a consumer really takes shopping and design to a whole new level! We are left wondering what the next new application for augmented reality will be…well, other than in construction project visualization.
