Code and Craft, a technology company that specializes in augmented and virtual reality experiences, today announced the launch of its AR Product Catalog, the first fashion-focused mobile app that leverages photorealistic 3D scanning services. Now, for the first time, users can virtually showcase an entire collection from an iPad or iPhone utilizing Apple’s ARKit technology. Code and Craft detailed photorealistic models create the closest representation to a physical product and enable customers to interact with samples just as they would in real life. The new release changes the normal course of business for brands by replacing the need for costly in-person travel, numerous product samples, or poor-quality line sheets, with a life-like 3D online showroom experience.
