FurnitARe is a multifaceted application which uses markerless AR technology to transform old-fashioned, boring furnishing procedure into an interactive, customizable and exciting process. FurnitARe helps you inspirit the routine of designing your house, room or office with the right furniture, eliminating the need for physical presence of these objects to visualize the desired interior.
Approach and Solution
Our top priority for this project was to overcome the existing business challenges and introduce a new AR product for a wider audience. There are many incredible AR applications for interior design industry on the market, however, the vast majority of them are bound to a particular brand or company. The FurnitARe application is focusing on reaching a broader market this is why it’s completely price and watermark free which allows anybody who is interested in the application to use it for private or commercial purposes.
FurnitARe allows you to upload an unlimited number of custom furniture 3D models. With our AR application, a user is able to test and try the desired furniture solutions before placing an order which provides a lot of freedom for users and companies that offer design services or specialize in furniture retail.
We used ARKit & ARCore, the leading technologies in the industry, for building the FurnitARe application. With the power of ARKit & ARCore, we could achieve markerless surface recognition and object placement which has proven to be an effective solution that provides an opportunity to get impeccable experience from the augmented reality. We aimed to make it intuitive for the end user to navigate within the AR environment and make the best decisions for object’s location. Based on our application development experience we believe that we have built a comfortable object placement pipeline that allows users to get the most out of the FurnitARe application.
From a technological standpoint, the AR markerless solution has opened a new door for surface detection and recognition which not only allows to navigate within the real environment much easier but also provides an unlimited uploading of 3D models. It took one product manager, UX/UI artist, 3D modeler, two augmented reality Unity developers, and one QA specialist to complete the application.
