Use Augmented Reality to Map Your Own Floorplan
In all the recent hubbub surrounding Apple's new iPhones, you may have heard of ARKit and wondered just what in the world that is.
Apple defines ARKit as "a new framework that allows you to easily create unparalleled augmented reality experiences for iPhone and iPad." It's built into the latest version of Apple's operating system, iOS 11, and works on iPhones as old as the iPhone 6s.
Essentially ARKit makes it possible to use your phone's camera and screen to create augmented reality experiences. This might mean using an Ikea app to digitally see how a new chair would look in your actual living room, or it might be Pokemon Go's ability to superimpose digital Pokemon into the real world around you.
The useful real estate tool we're here to talk about is magicplan, and it's one of the early adopters of ARKit. Using your phone's camera, you can walk around and map a floorplan for any room you're standing in. The end result is a full floorplan, ready to share with prospective buyers.
Here's a demo of how to capture a room with magicplan:
After creating your floorplan, you can also add furniture to give a better representation of how the space can be used and decorated.
Floorplans are an incredibly useful tool for any homebuyers or sellers, and magicplan makes it easy to create them without ever leaving your phone. Magicplan has a free option to give you a taste of the AR life.
