This is a pretty incredible AR demo. https://twitter.com/laanlabs/status/1037739442650243072
@bigzaphod there’s... there’s no way that’s real, right? That’s gotta be fake. I can’t believe that the phone in my pocket is able to scan objects well enough to recreate them in AR. That boggles my mind.
@bigzaphod they make it look like you can instantly copy/paste whole objects but they're actually being scanned beforehand (which makes sense; otherwise how would it know what the other side of the object looks like).
There are still aspects of this that impress me (like taking an object in the viewport and matching it to a previously scanned object) but the video is pretty misleading.
@harpaa01 I figured they must have walked all the way around the thing and done some kind of scanning beforehand. Still amazing though. At some point AI could probably artificially “fill in the gaps” without needing as much scanning, too.
@bigzaphod if all major furniture retailers added support to their website for AR and that somehow dovetailed with AR room measurement they could even suggest furniture that would fit (in addition to showing it in situ).
