Augmented Reality

Taking user experience to a whole new level

Blending virtual products into the real environment in real-time is something your business really needs? Come aboard, we’ll tell you how best to revamp your business with AR.

Looks like Augmented Reality (AR) is well on its way in revolutionizing today’s businesses and their workspaces. The idea, once seemed a bit of a stretch, is now turning the wheels of fortunes of businesses. So, Ideaplunge wanted to sink its teeth into it, and in doing so, we have been highly successful in bringing AR expertise under our umbrella.

You might ask why you need Augmented reality or you really need at all. Imagine a Pokemon Go kind of an experience at your favorite shopping/store. That’s how businesses are willing to differentiate themselves, and many have already shifted to AR to power up their product visualization, which in turn had maximized user experience and improved brand visibility.
