Remember that moment when you started painting the living room wall, only to realise 10 minutes later you've accidentally made the room feel really dark and small, even though you chose a great, bright colour? Those days are gone. Welcome the new augmented reality app, Dulux Visualizer into your life.
Here's how Dulux describe their new app:
See your own room in any colour, live! Using unique augmented reality technology, you can see realistic Dulux paint colours appear on your walls with just a tap of the screen. Experiment with bolder colours or narrow down your colour choices with confidence. The experts at Dulux give you a choice of colour schemes to go with your chosen paint colours or existing furnishings. You can also order paint testers to be delivered direct to your door and find your nearest paint stockists.
Want to see what it looks like in action? We created the short intro video to the app:
Why are we telling you about this? Well, ultimately because we think it's a really great, useful and fun app (it really is quite addictive) - but also because we're really proud to have been a part of the team that made the app a reality, from conception through to mobile interface design and testing.
Check it out, have a play and share your decorating stories & feedback on the app with us - pictures of decorated rooms are very much welcome too.
