Augmented reality is still very much a new development in the construction industry. But this doesn’t mean organizations aren’t continually formulating new, compelling ways to use the technology, so it can fulfill what many see as great potential.
One such company is JB Knowledge Technologies, www.jbknowledge.com, Bryan, Texas. This week, the company announced the development of its SmartReality app. With the app, users can focus on a given design or plan file with the camera on their iPad, iPad Mini, or iPhone. The app subsequently recognizes the design, and the screen overlays a virtual model)of what the structure will look like upon completion…
Users can visit the SmartReality official website to be placed on a notification list for when the demo app is available in app stores. James Benham, president of JB Knowledge Technologies, says “the future is limitless. There’s a lot of exciting applications that can take this to the next level.”
JB Knowledge Technologies has also published a video of Benham using and explaining the SmartReality app, which can be seen here.
