Lowe’s has announced its Vision mobile app which uses Google’s Tango augmented reality technology on Lenovo Phab 2. Lenovo Phab 2 was the first phone that supported Google’s Tango.

This app would help the customers with in-home design needs.

Lowe’s said,” The Lowe’s Vision app enables the customers to easily measure any room of their house with just a touch of the figure. They could style it with a virtual Lowe’s product in real time. The whole process uses the augmented reality concept.”

This app would help the customers as they could now design, build and enjoy their homes by sitting in their house.

The app will use the multiple camera presents in your device to create a 3-D experience. This would show a realistic view of how re-imagines living space would look like.

Lowe’s has been known for developing many augmented reality solutions. They just announced Vision app using Google Tango technology few month earlier. But, this app only targeted the in-store navigation.

The Vision mobile app released this time, could be used outside the Lowe’s store. There are multiple uses of this app. The user could see how the new things fit in their home without placing it or without even replacing the old thing.

This would give a real feel to the user that how a particular product would look in the house. This would help the customers to make the correct decision while buying any product for their house.
