Augmented Reality Stencils Allow Artists To Cover Large Surfaces
An app on Google's AR platform Tango helps users paint and draw large-scale work
Artists looking to create large-scale art on a wall don’t always have the luxury of stencils. The SketchAR app, on Google’s AR platform Tango, gives artists the ability to employ their phones as stencils using augmented reality.
The artist selects a stencil in the app and backs away from the work surface. When they are far enough away, they set and lock the stencil’s size and placement. After locking in those settings, they can approach the wall and use their smartphone’s camera to view the stencil in sections while painting or drawing. The app also works for smaller surfaces.
SketchAR works only with Google Tango-enabled smartphones: the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro and the Asus ZenFone AR.
