COINS:FULCRO has used the latest in augmented reality (AR) technology to create a mobile app that displays a full 360° digital representation of a project on a smart phone’s screen by simply reading the AR code printed on the back of a business card.
One of COINS:FULCRO’s virtual reality and augmented reality projects, the MobileAR app for IoS and Android puts a 3D model in the user’s hand and allows the user to zoom in and out and assess the interior and exterior of a project on a room-by-room basis. It provides a quick, simple and portable way of accessing 3D model data without the need for a workstation with viewing software such as Navisworks.
The app was recently featured in Construction News as one of 7 tech trends to watch in construction. In a recent interview with Construction News, Fulcro’s Dr. Max Mallia-Parfitt spoke to reporter Jack Simpson about our smart business cards. As Jack concluded, ‘With clients and partners increasingly keen for tangible evidence of planned work, don’t be surprised if you see these floating around at networking events in the near future.’
