Augmented Reality (AR)

AR, what’s the point?  

It’s a fun and funky use of mobile technology, but is there a business need or benefit for Augmented Reality?

Consider how many resources go into creating a 3D model or BIM. Then after creation, the best way we can showcase this to potential users/ buyers/ tenants/clients is a printout, static image or set animation.  We can do a whole lot better than that!

AR is for showing off. It can be used in marketing, PR, stakeholder engagement and generally any area where you want to look slicker than your competition. If you want to be noticed and remembered, then think of diverting some marketing budget to creating an AR App.

How to get going with Augmented Reality (AR) ?

Once you have 3D or Building Information modelled content, Seeable can help you visualise it in a host of different ways.  Augmented reality utilises the rear-facing camera(s) on smartphones and tablets and superimposes the 3D model or BIM on the immediate surroundings.

This can be sent privately to individual Android or IOS devices or published to the Apple App store or Google Play for public download.
