    WMF launches second version of the Photo Simu app

    WMF launches second version of the Photo Simu app
    Geislingen/Steige - Since the WMF Photo Simu app was launched for true-to-scale 3D visualising of coffee machines and their add-on units and accessories, the virtual customer advice software program has been enjoying huge popularity. The new version 2.0 really takes the augmented reality app up a level in terms of user-friendliness and range of appliances.


    If the user has the multilingual app installed on a tablet PC or Smartphone, he can navigate with the convenient MultiTouch surfaces through a broad range of WMF commercial coffee machine products. Once the preferred model and accessories have been selected, the chosen items then appear as a 3D or photorealistic image in the place indicated by the device's camera. This is achieved by means of DIN A4 sheet sized markers which the user requests by e-mail, prints out and places in the spot where he wishes to install the machine - whether on a bar counter, kitchen surface or mobile sideboard. When the automatic pairing is activated, the marker sends its 3-D location information to the end device so that the true-to-scale visulaisation can be created. The customer then gains a visual impression of how the machine in question will fit into its allocated position. Furthermore, it is possible to manually zoom the precisely measured depiction in and out and to try out alternative set-ups (angular dimension). The customer can then save the selected device in his photo gallery and send a digital photo of it by e-mail.

    "During the development of Version 2.0, the emphasis was placed on an improved user interface with more modern, multi-touch gestures, optimised 3D technology, as well as the inclusion of an extensive range of machines. Thanks to these new features, Photo Simu is now in an even better position to actively assist our customers in the decentralised decision-making process", explains Melanie Nolte, Head of Distribution Marketing for Coffee Machines at WMF AG, while highlighting the advantages of the new version. Photo Simu is now available for download free of charge in the Apple App Store and the Android App Market.
