We have already seen some AR product placement examples in real-world environments including IKEA’s AR furniture display app and various makeup try-on tools.
No doubt that these usages are impressive but with the advancement in 3D modeling capacity it will enable more efficient virtual placement and better accurate tools. This could be beneficial especially for e-commerce and virtual shopping which will make it easier to see what the object will look like in the real world before you make a purchase.
Google shares its latest upgrades with the developer community with a view to future product advancements. Reports say that Apple is also trying a new AR app along with AR glasses which they might launch in the latter half of 2020.
