Curioos Augmented Reality App Lets You Preview Art on Your Walls

Curioos

When picking out the perfect piece of art online, it can sometimes be difficult to imagine what a full-size piece will look like on the wall, when viewing only a small thumbnail online. Enter Curioos, the digital art marketplace, which now offers a mobile app for viewing art pieces in augmented reality, as though they were already in your home.

To use the app, art lovers print out a tracker and place it on their wall, to act as a placeholder for their new piece of art. Back on the computer, users can browse the Curioos website to access over 5,000 pieces via augmented reality.

When users find an item they’d like to view in their space, they click a “Preview” button to receive a code which must be typed into the app to activate the augmented reality view for that piece.

After the piece is activated within the app, users direct their device’s camera to the placeholder tracker, and the image appears on the wall, in the proper scale. Users can toggle different sizing options, change the piece’s frame for a different look, bookmark pieces to their “favorites” for easier browsing later, or take photos and share them with others via text, email or social networks. Any favorites are logged within the app, so user’s aren’t required to enter their codes to go back to them later on.

The Curioos app is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store and Google Play. If the process sounds familiar, Pixels.com released its augmented reality, art-viewing app last July.
