By incorporating AR technology within the architectural design process, ARki is able to visualise 3d models for both design and presentation purposes, helping to create an immersive visualisation technique with multiple layers of interactivity. ARki can be deployed on any ios/ android device which allows the user to explore 3d data with an added level of navigational freedom.</p></em><br /><br /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"> <html><head><meta></head></html> http://archinect.com/news/article/78758467/ikea-s-new-ar-app-superimposes-furniture-into-your-empty-room Ikea's new AR app superimposes furniture into your empty room Archinect 2013-08-05T14:57:00-04:00 >2013-08-05T14:57:33-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/29/29de7262ab551a2f8c82d7dc9fed021f.jpg" width="514" height="343" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>In addition to last year&rsquo;s unveil of an augmented reality-capable catalog, Ikea now boasts a new app feature that can turn that little book into a virtual piece of furniture.
