Roland Corporation has introduced Roland AR, an Augmented Reality (AR) tool that lets you visualize how their pianos will fit into your home.
Roland AR leverages the power of LIDAR technology, found in modern mobile phones. Users can scan their environments and seamlessly incorporate true-to-scale virtual objects, such as the new GP Series Grand Pianos and popular LX and FP Series, into the scene. Roland says that this provides “an immersive and accurate representation of the instrument’s size, appearance, and fit.”
If they start doing this with synths, it could take G.A.S. (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) to a new level.
To try it out, see the Roland site.
