Amazon AR view

Try products in your home before you buy them

About

AR view lets you view products in your home before you buy them. You can see how they fit, and test how they look. Curious whether a throw pillow is the right shade of blue, or whether a mixer you like will fit under the counter? Now just pull out your phone to find out.

Would you recommend this product?

Super excited about the potential of it. Might be a gimmick that dies out in a few months but will be hugely useful when we have a more available, comfortable AR medium that's always on us (holding up phone won't cut it).

Pros:

Great way to see 360 degree detail / closeup of the product that I otherwise can't from images.

Cons:

Would take a while before every item can be digitized and viewable.

Great use of futuristic technology

Pros:

I have seen augmented reality before but now i see the real benefit ....well done Amazon

Cons:

None

I've just updated the app (available in US only) and found that whilst it works, the scaling/sizing of the items is a little off at times. The plane detection is quite slow and buggy with items being able to hover through other objects despite being 'rooted' on the plane. Overall a 3* effort.

Pros:

It works (kind of) allowing you to add and manipulate objects within your surrounding using a pretty solid UI.

Cons:

Plane detection and object scaling are a little off. Strange desire to keep translating from vertical to horizontal orientations.

Amazon is squeezing every single supplier more, and more and more. Now it isn't enough to just list a product. Now this 'service' will be yet another charge item.

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

Same exorbitant charges, more imposts on the supplier feeding insane, rampant, unnecessary artificially induced demand.

Making shopping decisions easier by letting me visualize everything from a vase to a tow truck is a pretty awesome experience. My son enjoyed seeing the toys by moving them around to see all sides!

Pros:

Its pretty cool to be able to visualize all types of products before you actually buy them.

Cons:

More options, selections.

Also not sure how this would work for larger items.

Pros:

Now I dont need to go to the store to check the actual size, before I buy it online! :)

Cons:

Could I change the color , model etc while in the AR view to pick the best option?
