Lowe’s Canada is using a simulator to help customers plan home improvement projects.
Consumers can enter the Lowe’s Holoroom and choose paint colors and other products via iPad to experience them at full scale, creating a 3-D model of a room in their home, according to a press release.
Lowe’s Innovation Labs created the “intuitive, immersive experience in the room of their dreams” by using 3-D and augmented reality technologies, the press release says.
The home improvement retail giant launched Lowe’s Holoroom in two Toronto-area stores late this year.
“We are very excited to introduce this groundbreaking technology to the Canadian market first,” Lowe’s Canada president Sylvain Prud’homme says in the press release. “The Holoroom inspires customers to explore, create and experience a home project before they ever begin, which in turn builds confidence in their decisions to initiate work.”
Customers will be able to download a free Lowe’s MyHoloroom app in early 2015 so they can share their model projects with other people.
