Part of launch board
We get the inspiration from the idea provided by Stanley Black&Decker, which is to show users how would the product like in real place and in real size using AR technic. We choose to solve this problem because we also encounter same problem in our daily life. When we are browsing website for buying furnitures or other space-taking product, the first wonders that we come up with is always these two: How much room would it take and would it suit the overall arrangement.
What it does
It provides customer with 3D models of products which they might be interested in and enable the customers to place, arrange (move and rotate) and interact with these models in their exact size in reality space to help they make decision on whether to buy it or not.
How we built it
We use iOS AR kit.
Challenges we ran into
Plane detection; How to open and close the drawer; how to build 3D model by ourselves from nothing
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are able to open and close drawer
What we learned
How to make AR animation
What's next for Y.Cabinet
We want to enable the change of size and color of a series/set of products directly in AR view, without the need to go back to choose. We also want to make the products look more realistic by finding a way to add light and shadow to it.
