In the second video, he uses hand gestures to show how we can use augmented reality to purchase furniture in our homes and verify it for decor and size. The idea has been around with smartphone apps from Metaio, but Phedhex supersizes the idea and gives us a glimpse into an immersive version we’d see with a HMD. The production value of the video makes me think Phedhex should be doing a regular series on AR because it shows a tangible business case for increased investment into the fledgling technology.
