As part of the RBC Innovation Lab's experiments, we also explored ideas for the Hololens.
We created a furniture placement tool for the Hololens and iOS ARKit that allowed the user to shop for furniture and place items within augmented reality to better understand how the item fitted in their existing home layout. Features included:
Auto-detection of floor and walls for the user to anchor the item against.
Distance and size estimation to render the object at the correct size in the environment.
Rotation tools to help orient the item properly in the room.
