Currently, over 2 billion people worldwide buy goods and services online. With an evergrowing need to prefer online stores to the brick-and-mortar ones, it is often hard to buy a product that is exactly how it looks online. Shopping for home decor online is surprisingly a new addition to e-commerce, and one of the major reasons for giant companies like Ikea to hesitate on taking part in e-commerce and for consumers to think twice before buying such decorations online is the issue of "How well are they going to fit in with the rest of the house?". E-commerce is a booming industry, and we found the growth of home decor online to be new-born but revolutionary. This inspired us to help out bridge the gap of uneasiness for home decor e-commerce by answering the biggest question yet.
What it does
This is where we, Decor.IT, come in. We aim to aid not only the companies in providing better visualization of their products(in 3d!) but also their customers by allowing them to shop for home decorations at their own ease while sitting in their pajamas and drinking wine at midnight, knowing that they can actually see how those items will look like with the rest of their house interior.
How we built it
Decor.IT uses 8th Wall API incorporated using JS and A-Frame html-extenision for rendering the 3D decor items into the viewfinder as Augmented Reality objects and the front end of the application has been built on react native.

What's next for BU/Decor.IT
We aspire to take Decor.IT to a whole new level where we can integrate our application with leading companies like Ikea, Blu Dot etc. This will allow the companies greater flexibility by customizing the application according to their own needs and allowing their consumers, especially, to get a better visual experience for their products online!
Hope you all like our product!!!
