Augmented Reality is Here

AR App Red-sc

What if you could stand onsite at your next project and explore how furniture could be placed, with your phone?

A new way to envision and experiment with configuring the Aria Seating System – in situ or from your office – is here, with the Street Furniture Australia Build ARIA app now available in the App Store for iPhone and iPad.

Watch the step-by-step guide on how to use the app:

AR App Configuring - 700

The app aims to make specifying and sharing concepts easier and more enjoyable, says Design and Marketing Manager June Lee Boxsell.

The latest Augmented Reality (AR), technology is now capable of realistic and accurate virtual renderings that spring to life on your phone or tablet.

“When we saw the first prototype we were amazed at the quality and just how far this technology has progressed,” says Boxsell.

“The furniture appears life-size in the room on your screen, so you can see how it will fit in a space. All aspects down to the finishes and fixings underneath are photorealistic – even the light changes accurately as you move.

“We hope the app will help designers reduce some of the hours they currently spend on renderings and drawings, by allowing them to see and really experience their furniture ideas, brought to life in ultra-realistic augmented reality.

“The app will be connected to our sales team and factory, so when you are ready you can click to request a quote for your specification. We also hope it is fun and enjoyable to use.”

The app will first be available on iOS, with Android devices soon to follow.

Search ‘Build ARIA’ in the app store.

SFA Achieves Four ISO Certifications

Street Furniture Australia is launching a new Integrated Management System to include ISO certifications in quality, OH&S, sustainability and the environment. The system certified by QAS International is designed to meet the requirements of PAS99:2012 including Quality Management ISO 9001:2015, Environmental Management ISO 14001:2015, and OH&S Management ISO 45001:2018 and AS/NZS 4801:2001.

Trend Watch May 2019

A guide to surveillance in the city: Google sister company Sidewalk Labs has created a system of urban signage that reveals the technologies it is using to track people in public spaces. The signs are intended to be a visual representation of the privacy policies the company is developing to go along with its data collection technology. While the project goes some way to address privacy concerns around data collection, there’s still no way for people to opt out of being tracked in public. The signage is being trialled in Toronto, Canada, but could be taken up in other cities. To find out more about the signage design, purpose and placement, see the article by Fast Company.
