Win a drone

There is chance to win AU$630 Drone in the latest competition held by Street Furniture Australia where you can download their new free app which offers a new way to configure and visualise furniture, with an Augmented Reality (AR) app that brings seating to life in your office or onsite.

This app helps you create a custom furniture suite, experiment with arranging it in the landscape in true-to-life dimensions, and share it with your family or client or craftsman to complete it in original all with the app in your iPad or iPhone. Offering more visual way to configure and specify the new Aria Seating System, a kit of standard parts that can be fitted together to create custom settings. The Aria system includes one, two and three-person seats and benches, connector panels in 180, 90 and 45 degrees, PowerMe Tables for charging and connectivity, and optional armrests.

All can be arranged and viewed in realistic Augmented Reality with the Build Aria app, available from the app store for iPhone models 7 and later and iPad. An Android version will soon follow.

According to Design and Marketing Manager June Lee Boxsell the app aims to make specifying and sharing concepts more easy and enjoyable,  The furniture appears life-size in the room on your screen, so you can see how it will fit in a space. All aspects, down to the finishes and fixings underneath, are photo-realistic even the light changes accurately as you move.

She adds that the company hopes the app will help designers reduce some of the hours they currently spend on renderings and drawings, by allowing them to see and really experience their furniture ideas, in ultra-realistic augmented reality.
