RealAR is an Australian based augmented reality startup that allows users to visualize property plans and do walkthroughs before properties are built. The startup doesn’t require expensive gear and can easily convert floor plans into virtual experiences within minutes. Users can take a 2D floor plan or 3D model created in Matterport or Autodesk formats and then create a augmented reality experience, allowing users to see the walk-through in life-size, spot issues that they may not have thought about with just a floor plan view of the project, and give potential home buyers the additional comfort they might need to make a purchase.
