bartsmall-logo Business-Augmented-Reality-for-Tiles connects virtual a showroom tile “sample” to a bart-code (looks like a qr-code,  see image). As soon this bart-code is placed in the area a user wants to tile it virtually show the connected tile in realtime. At this momen our  bARt development is for  1sq ft (around  1 m²) This mean that one bart-code can contain 1 sq ft of the connected tile. In 2015 we think to set one bARt-code to tile the complete area. The user has the possibility the rotate the area with tiles or change the groud color. bARt-code is our patented engine.

This is a bART-code

Who or What is Augmented Reality?

The best explanation comes from webopedia. Abbreviated as AR, Augmented Reality is a type of virtual reality that aims to duplicate the world’s environment in a computer. An augmented reality system generates a composite view for the user that is the combination of the real scene viewed by the user and a virtual scene generated by the computer that augments the scene with additional information. The virtual scene generated by the computer is designed to enhance the user’s sensory perception of the virtual world they are seeing or interacting with. The goal of Augmented Reality is to create a system in which the user cannot tell the difference between the real world and the virtual augmentation of it. Today Augmented Reality is used in entertainment, military training, engineering design, robotics, manufacturing and other industries.

Ok, Lets see how Augmented Reality  works with tiles (click youtube video to start)…

It's kind of fun to do the impossible (Walt Disney)
Q:Can "fun" change the behavior (read purchase) of humans? Read what Fun Theory says about this...

 

There are a infinitive possibilties for changing a area with ceramic tiles. But only bARt can give you a super idea how it looks like in the future. And the best part is not only with tiles! What about wood, natural stone, wallpaper (no not your pc wallpaper ).
Any how, we like bARt to introduce to your company. If there is any interest give us a note…

 

Who and what is bARt?

bartsmall-logo_small  is the abbreviation of Business Augmented Reality for Tiles. And as the name suggest it is specific created and developed for use the ceramic field.  Altough in other building materials it can be used to. bARt (BV)t is a spin off of two companies situated in Delft (The Netherlands) and Belgium. The engine which create the augmented reality is developed in cooperation with the university Delft (The Netherlands) specific YES Delft. A spin-off company DELIGHT interactive solution BV is responsible for the engine (patent) and development of bARt. While the company iVisionar (founding father of bARt) is responsible for bringing together augmentes reality,  tiledata  and 2D visuals. iVisionaAR has a history of 23 years in the ceramic field and therefore the firm for marketing bARt. So in short bARt is a Augmented Reality adventure for ceramic tiles.

What do you need to start with bARt?

bartsmall-logo_small runs on a tablet , ipad, smartphone,  laptop as long it has a camera connected with it. bARt is running on Windows and all known OS.

How far are you with the development of bARt?

At this moment we can connect bARt with our software Brongle.  Beginning 2015 we will have the development for connecting bARt to ERP systems and webshops. Tiling a area will be available in 2015.
