How tall is that wall? Are those wall hangings level? Can that area rug fit into my living room? These are just a few instances where the ability to measure comes in handy. There's also measuring your waist size, head size, pizza size, and much more. But what if you don't have a ruler or measuring tape handy? Four augmented reality measurement apps, developed with Apple's ARKit, enable you to use your phone's camera and a couple of taps to easily calculate the distance from one point to another.
AR, or augmented reality, is a technology that works with your device's camera and GPS to overlay a digital animation, image, or object onto a real-world camera view.
To take advantage of these AR features, you'll need an iPhone 6S (or later), iPad Pro, or iPad 2017, running iOS 11.
ARKit is Apple's new developer toolkit for iOS 11, which helps creators develop AR experiences within apps and games.
AirMeasure AR is a handy measurement tool for design projects, in particular. Get measurements. Use the Laser Level and Laser Distance functions to level and space your wall art. Create a floor plan or draw a 3D cube by tracing on your phone. You can also preview furniture in your space.
ARuler uses AR to measure areas, volumes, and even heights. Just tap the starting and end points, and calculate the distance instantly.
AR MeasureKit allows you to take measurements with various augmented reality tools. You can measure straight lines with a ruler, trajectory by moving your device, and dimensions with the Cube feature. Chaining Mode, which connects multiple rulers together, comes in handy when you're measuring larger areas.
The Measured by Lowe's app will tell you the distance between two points. Just point your camera, set your points with taps, and get an accurate measurement in a snap. Use to know if your desired bed frame will fit in your bedroom, what width blinds to purchase, and much more.
