Decorate Your House In AR With The New Housecraft App

If you’re thinking about redecorating your home, then you might like the new app called Housecraft for the iPhone and iPad. Because with this app, you have the ability to select 3D models of different furniture from different brands and designs, and rotate and position them in the perfect angle in your house.

This all works through augmented reality and through the camera of your iPhone, so you can be able to see exactly where you’re placing each item. This way, you can get an idea of how certain pieces will look in a room, without having to guess when browsing online or in an actual store.

It’s also cool because this app doesn’t seem to limit you in the types of furniture you want either, and gives you a wide selection of tables, chairs, beds, couches and even little decor items like plants to pick from. And, you also get to place them in different angles and resize them through the app’s width, depth and height slider as well, so you can make them a realistic size according to your home’s space.

So if you could see yourself using this app for your house, then you can always be sure to download or learn more about it over at the App Store, where it’s currently going for free for any iPhone or iPad with an iOS 11.0 or later.

Apple did reportedly attend CES 2018 — to meet with AR glasses suppliers

Apple AR Glasses

Apple has long been rumored to be working on AR glasses, but CEO Tim Cook and others have repeatedly denied that anything is in the works. While that may still be the case, it appears the company's interest in augmented reality -- which Tim Cook has claimed will "change the way we use technology forever" -- hasn't subsided, as Bloomberg reports that the company was in attendance at CES 2018 talking to suppliers of components for AR glasses.

Apple wasn't the only one holding these discussions, as Google, Facebook and Snap were all spotted as well, but it is the only company of the group that hasn't launched a head-mounted display. Google has Daydream View, Facebook acquired Oculus in 2014 and Snap tried and failed to breach the market with Spectacles two years ago.

Magic Leap finally shows off its massively hyped mixed reality headset

magic leap one

Magic Leap has been working on a mixed reality headset — that is, a blend of AR and VR that theoretically provides the best of both worlds — for the better part of a decade, and with over a billion dollars in funding, the pressure is on to show some results sooner rather than later. To that end, the company finally revealed its first actual product today, the Magic Leap One, and it looks insane.

The company's reveal today — teased on Twitter and then showcased on its newly-updated website — is really just the developer version of the device. Called the "Creator Edition," the headset, controller, and hub are designed to be used by developers working with Magic Leap's SDK. The whole software/hardware package will finally reach creators in early 2018, according to Magic Leap.
