Pottery Barn is launching an augmented reality app, called 3D Room View, that lets customers visually try out living room furniture before they buy it.
The 3D Room View app works with Google’s Project Tango, a platform that uses motion tracking, area learning, and depth perception to allow mobile devices to understand their position relative to the world around them.
Since the app runs on Tango, only two phones will be able to run 3D Room view as of right now — the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro and the Asus ZenFone AR.
The app will be coming out in March 2017. At first, customers will only be able to use it for living room furniture and decorations.
