Augmented Reality (AR) enables digital information to be superimposed and assimilated into our physical environment – in other words, it is a powerful tool that can integrate the real world with the digital in new and exciting ways.
AR has become accessible to the masses, and while typically associated with video games and other entertainment experiences, AR can be used for an inexhaustible variety of practical applications, including education, training, medical research, product development, environmental interaction and more.
Park infrastructure specialists, Grillex, have recognised the importance of AR in designing public spaces and have incorporated the technology on their new website. No longer having to rely solely on measurements, images from multiple angles and product samples, AR can help landscape architects and public space developers envision the exact layout of the space, while onsite or from the office (or home). Using AR, the right barbecue can be selected based on the needs of the project, along with complementary shelters and park furniture. Colours can be changed, sizes can be adjusted, and additional features can be added or removed, all with the click of a button – or tap of a finger – making designing the best public space a breeze.
With a fully integrated AR system, a user can even take a walk through the public space to investigate and interact with the proposed design.
Augmented Reality is no longer a nice-to-have, but is a necessity when designing a public space or park. Using AR will create a seamless design, development and integration experience that will save time and money, while adding to the overall quality of the space and providing value to communities for years to come.
