The Embed Unit is (in my opinion) one of Poplar Studio’s most interesting products. Designed and built completely in-house, it enables end-users (e-commerce customers) to view products from all angles, try them out in their own environment and even try them on themselves.
The Embed Unit works in the browser rather than within an app, and therefore can be integrated within any e-commerce site. If browsing on a computer, a QR code will prompt the user to scan the code and view the product on their mobile device. If browsing on their mobile device, a button will launch the AR experience.
The main interface of the Embed Unit allows users to view different products and access information about them. They can also add the product to their basket and switch product categories by accessing the bottom menu.
Because AR is still very new and this product needs to cater to all kinds of users, we have included some guidance on how to use the View in AR feature. Every screen includes a short clip showing how to use the tool.
Upon first launch, and every time the user comes back to the site, a short (and skippable) product tour pops up to quickly walk users through the tool’s different functionalities.
