One of the practical applications of the technology is the virtual fitting of furniture and things in the house.

The authors of the project Made With ARKit has demonstrated an augmented reality app that allows you to see how a thing will look in the interior. You can drag the thing and thus to get an idea of how it will look in your home. The user can define the position of the device with millimeter precision. The size of the products massturbate the size of the room. As a result, people can make a better decision about the purchase.

Current AR applications allow you to do something similar, but their accuracy leaves much to be desired. They can choose piece of furniture and watch as it is superimposed on what the camera indicates. But thanks to technology ARKit is a new augmented reality app will be much better.
