If you've ever wanted to storm into Jerry Seinfeld's apartment like Cosmo Kramer, you can do so now without having to book a ride on the Peterman Reality Tour.
Built with input from Tho. E. Azzari, the original production designer of the sitcom, the Seinfeld Set Replica, is a non-AR miniature version of the television (without the ubiquitous Superman statue). However, the product's online store offers customers the ability to preview the replica in their physical space using Augmented Reality ARKit-compatible iPhones and iPads. 19659004] Tommy Palladino / Next Reality Image
Experience is made possible by Apple's AR Quick Look feature for web-based content through the Safari mobile browser, as implemented by Shopify. The detailed 3D model allows the viewer to see Jerry's iconic living room and kitchen up close, though his bedroom and bathroom are prohibited as usual.
"With Shopify AR, you can not only see the replica in your apartment, but move," said Daniel Beauchamp, AR / VR head of Shopify, in a blog post.
It's not real, but spectacular. The experience is very meta ̵
The intent is not only to Seinfeld fans but also to help sell the memorabilia, which are available for $ 399.99. Online retailers, such as Apple's AR Quick Look feature and web-based AR, generally show competitive conditions for smaller or independent retailers over AR-friendly e-commerce apps from major retailers such as Amazon, IKEA and Target.
Similarly, looking at items such as Virtual Instant Pots and the Fallout T-51 Power Armor speaker that rendered remarkably well in Pixar's USDZ file format, Apple's taste of Web AR on other platforms seems a little bit up the other it comes for startups and indie companies who want to use AR for the sale.
