bathstore launches revolutionary AR App with ArtiCAD

Bathstore_Main_Land hi res 300px.jpgbathstore customers now have the opportunity to bring their dream bathroom designs to life, with the launch of bathstore's innovative new Augmented Reality service; bathroom viewAR.

Developed in conjunction with ArtiCAD, it will now be possible to virtually enter, walk around and explore bathroom designs, allowing customers to fully visualise their ideas and concepts.

Using a bathroom viewAR enabled tablet, customers will be able to explore bathroom designs that they have created in store. Working alongside bathstore's Pan360° room viewer, which lets users view their 3D bathroom designs at a 360 degree angle, customers can now take the next step in their architectural journey by fully immersing themselves in their creations by using bathroom viewAR.

With viewAR, experiencing that dream bathroom is as close to reality as it gets.

An industry-first and the latest in bathstore's suite of design services, viewAR is the next step in allowing customers to be inspired, design and realise the ideal bathroom all in one place. The addition of viewAR promises to make the experience of shopping for a bathroom even more immersive and enjoyable than ever before.

Claire Bayliss, Chief Marketing Officer of bathstore said: 'bathroom viewAR is another example of bathstore being at the forefront of innovation and design. We are always looking for new and exciting ways to make the customer experience easier and more immersive, from inspiration to installation, and viewAR is the next step in that journey".

Richard Turner, Managing Director of ArtiCAD said:

“bathstore has consistently pushed the boundaries when it comes to adopting ground-breaking technologies, to give their customers the best possible experience. This AR innovation was developed in just weeks, with the full input of the bathstore management team. This is the beginning of a new and very exciting era for interiors visualisation and it is fitting that bathstore is leading the way."
