Augmented Reality - Interior Design Tool

Augmented Reality is so fun for real world architectural applications because you can start manipulating the physical real world in virtual space. Instead of a hologram floating arbitrarily in space, we have a real world wall and floor we can play with in virtual space and express in different ways--all on the fly.

We succeeded!

Virtual Mockups for Ergonomics and Rapid Iteration

In Healthcare Design, the arrangement of elements represents healing and patient comfort. In Retail Design, it represents brand identity, impulse purchases, and returning customers. In Industrial Design, it represents worker safety and measurable improvements in efficiency. Where arrangement of elements is crucial to the design, VR is the right tool for the job.
