American home hardware retailer Lowe's has announced that it will soon be launching a new mixed reality feature on its mobile app called 'Measure Your Space.' The innovative new feature will allow users to scan a room in their homes and automatically receive details regarding its measurements. In addition, the feature will even provide users with home improvement recommendations and estimates.
Currently, the new tool is set to be used just for flooring and comes as a result of Lowe's broader "spatial commerce" vision, which has seen the company invest in emerging technologies like LiDAR -- an AI and mixed reality tool designed to assist customers with home improvement projects.
“We see a future in which the devices customers already own can sense, understand and compile information about their home, putting it in their hands the moment they need it, said Seemantini Godbole, Lowe's executive vice president and chief information officer.
