Bixby Vision makes advanced AR capabilities more accessible
Samsung announced that the Galaxy Note 10 is equipped with the enhanced Bixby Vision. In recent years, the company made it possible to try on cosmetics before buying, count the calories on the plate of food in front of a user, and search the web for things just by pointing a smartphone camera at them.
With the Galaxy Note10, a user can see how a new piece of furniture would look in their space, use their camera to search for a product similar to one right in front of them, translate entire blocks of text, try out a new look, and turn a regular movie poster into an AR movie trailer.
Here’s the details on new features:
- Home Decor. Activate your virtual showroom and select decor or furniture options you want to place in your room. You can even virtually place Samsung appliances in your kitchen or laundry room. From there, you can see how they look in your space. When you’re ready, Bixby Vision links you to Wayfair so you can have your final selections shipped straight to your door.
- Enhanced Live Translation. In Text mode, Bixby Vision can now capture multiple lines of text and translate them in augmented reality—no need to even take a photo. With real-time translation in 54 input languages and 104 output languages, you can read signs and menus all over the world.
- Styling. Samsung worked with Ray Ban eyewear, so you can virtually try on a new pair of sunglasses. You can try different looks and styles, and even learn more about sizing options and discounts. When you’ve settled on one you love, Bixby Vision connects you to the website to complete your purchase.
- Picture Play. Bixby Vision makes movie posters instantly interactive. Just point your camera at the poster, billboard, or other type of ad to get the details you need. You can read up about the cast, see movie reviews rating, and get a plot overview. You can even watch the trailer. Bixby Vision overlays video on the physical poster in front of you.
