If you’ve ever done a bit of interior design, you’ll be familiar with the annoying stage of getting on your hands and knees with a measuring tape, scribbling down numbers until you’re blue in the face and then realising you’ve done it wrong. Well, the Archisketch aims to do all that hard work for you. Whether you’re just doing a reshuffle, buying a whole new set of furniture or completely renovating your house, Archisketch wants to help. After you set up the room by marking its corners, attach this little box to the end of your phone and get it going. It scans a space, measures the distances and produces a 2D, 3D and even VR virtualisation of that space in the app. If you have compatible files of your to-be furniture, you can import those files into the Archisketch app and move them around inside your new 3D floorplan to make sure they fit before buying them. Neat!
