The world is constantly advancing – once upon a time, an abacus was necessary for mathematics, now we have calculators built into every device we own. We needed a compass for our travels, and now we have Satellite Navigation. Once upon a time we required detailed blueprints to figure out where we were going to place the deck for our house – and now we have augmented reality (AR).
AZEK Building Products is a leader in providing premium decking products and services to people who want to renovate their homes for more than 30 years, and now, their Deck Designer app has been updated with the power of augmented reality.
The app allows users to lay out 3D designs that include AZEK and TimberTech products, users can then tally up exactly what they need and order the materials through the app.
The app has been live since 2014, and in the latest update users can access an augmented reality mode that uses markerless technology to help visualise your desk – impressive!
AZEK Building Products’ CMO Julia Fitzgerald has said; “Since the launch of our Deck Designer in January, we have received consistent feedback that people love visualizing their dream decks before investing in them. There are even templates that help guide creativity for homeowners who need a little inspiration. Ultimately, bringing AZEK’s innovative programs together in this update will make virtually designing and saving dream deck images easier than ever before.”
It’s nice to see AR being used for more and more applications – we’d love to see it used for more practical applications like this.
