Popular retailer Warby Parker is using augmented reality and the TrueDepth camera system of recent iPhones to help make finding a perfect pair even easier.
Putting Augmented Reality to Work
The company’s Glasses by Warby Parker app has just been updated to version 2.0 with the fun virtual try-on feature.
To start, you’ll select the first frame to try on using the app. You can swipe through to see how other styles will look on your face.
It’s easy to favorite a frame style to view later or add to the company’s popular home try-on option. You can also directly purchase the frames from the app.
Users can also share photos of how the different frames look with friends and family.
Warby Parker says that its unique algorithm will mimic the actual process of putting on frames and will also take into account how specific facial features work with the selected pair.
Glasses by Warby Parker is designed for the iPhone and can be downloaded now on the App Store for free. You’ll need an iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, or iPhone XR to use the virtual try-on feature.
