Taipei, Taiwan and Wrocław, Poland — October 19, 2016 — PIXERS, an interior personalization specialist, is teaming up with iStaging, a leading augmented and virtual reality technologies provider, to create the best AR/VR experience in interior design. Reflecting the increasing number of AR and VR applications made for business use rather than personal entertainment, this global partnership is at an advanced stage of development to combine the best of interior design personalization with a means to try out infinite design configurations possible only through virtual technologies.
Unlike other AR furniture or home staging apps, iStaging uses markerless technology and eliminates the need to place a catalog or a piece of paper on the floor to indicate the position of a piece of furniture. The experience will be significantly more straightforward and user-friendly, with an unparalleled range of home decor products available in the finished app. The app will also recognize different surfaces — walls, ceilings, floors — which will enable professional designers, DIY enthusiasts, and design aficionados to decorate homes from top to bottom.
This will make iStaging’s app an ideal companion to PIXERS’ products, which include decorative walls that can be fully personalized and applied on any flat surface at home, the office or any other space, thanks to a flexible self-adhesive material unique to PIXERS.
“We’ve been experimenting with VR for a while now, but personalization of virtual interiors is a totally new area,” said Mateusz Mentlewicz, CMO at PIXERS. “iStaging has a system that turns PIXERS’ products automatically into 3D and AR content. That allows us to provide our customers with an exceptionally personalized experience when they do a makeover of their living or work space.”
PIXERS is one of the first retailers adopting Tango, a set of sensors and computer vision software that enables augmented reality (AR) experiences on smartphones, including utilities, gaming and education. iStaging’s app is fully compatible with Tango and has been engineered to work seamlessly with the first Tango-enabled smartphone, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro, which is due for release later this year (shop.lenovo.com/us/en/tango/).
“At iStaging, augmented reality and virtual reality are not buzzwords or something fancy. We create technologies that are useful in real life, and in this way it makes a big difference for furniture and real estate businesses,” said Kevin Basset, iStaging’s Head of Marketing. “By teaming up with PIXERS, we’re looking to enhance the user experience and provide their customers with a tool to make better purchasing decisions.”
App users can now virtually try out their wildest interior decor ideas in their own space before making a purchase from PIXERS (www.pixersize.com). The website offers an easy purchasing process with full online service. The iStaging interior design app can be downloaded at www.istaging.co/en/app/ or in the App Store and Google Play.
