It may seem strange to call interior decoration exciting, especially if you are not a professional in this industry. But that's exactly what it is when combined with Augmented Reality.
I recently found out how entertaining it can be to download the new Sotheby's Curate App for Magic Leap One.
Sotheby's app follows in the footsteps of the mobile versions of the Curate app for iOS and Android, a tool that allows anyone to get an idea of what certain furniture components look like in their own home before buying could.
The big difference in the Magic Leap app is based on the immersion. Although mobile apps can provide a pretty good idea of what your home can do with AR or not, you can use the Curate app on Magic Leap One to wander and examine life-size furniture outside the bounds of a tiny handheld screen.
The resulting effect is reminiscent of going through A real showroom, as the items do not need to be scaled and are realistic alongside all the furniture in your real space.
Developed by roOomy, a Silicon Valley company that uses AR and VR to support real estate and interiors design professionals, the Curate app is so easy to use that the only caveat is that you no longer have fun setups have to try it relatively quickly. Currently, the app only has nine setups to choose from, including bedrooms, living rooms, dining rooms and office environments.
Another great one The advantage of the Magic Leap version of the Curate app lies in its realism. Because you need to scan your real-world environment, the app warns you when you try to place furniture in a location that's already occupied by real objects.
That may sound trivial, but this tiny detail maximizes the sense of immersion by equating your virtual object with your real objects in some way, allowing you to more naturally interact with AR furniture in terms of placement and viewing angle can.
The most exciting aspect of the app is the fact that no detail is saved. Literally everything you see – from plants to tiny bells to the carpet under your feet – are clickable items that provide detailed information about the item.
Sorry, the app does not support to-buy functionality (at least not when I tried it). So you can mostly just browse.
I found in the app on the respective websites of the various brands things that were shown in the app, such. For example, the Pottery Barn Mini Faux Potted Orchid and the Havertys Heirloom Rug Much more powerful if I could just click and buy what I like about Magic Leap One.
