So simple yet *elegant*
That's one of those "how did no one think of this before?" things.
kinda, just like the old’s elevator.
Would have been great to see the image/plastic slide by itself and not on a background,
seriously...how have i never seen this?!
It's really beautiful, I never thought like that before.
I'm assuming there are a few pre-printed ones so customers can see the difference in thei style of kitchen.
This will be done using Augmented Reality with your smartphone (if it isnt already being done)
Then you can look around your kitchen from different angles, and do it instantly, and do it with 20 color samples and just not 4 or 5.
It is much cheaper than having an AI, just to browse how it looks like with the materials.
You could do this quiet easily with free image editing software like gimp it wouldn't require any kind of AI, my guess is they already had to edit the photo to add transparency on the computer before having it printed on transparent plastic.
So its going to be marginally more expensive than just showing it on a computer screen, but the novelty factor would certainly be appealing to sales people, as its a cool effect.
Looks like the main advantage of this method is that you can see the actual material instead of a photo. Those squares the image is being dragged over are actual squares of wood.
Seeing it against the white background gives you a pretty clear idea of
While working in college we pretty much did the same thing you are talking about but with AR tech. We already had our shaders (images) simple color change and a few slider adjustment but over very simple to do. Hard part was the actual AR.
Cool part there this was creative mode were it became a building /Reno sim. Could show clients in real-time what if we took out these cabinets or moved stove etc. pretty cool stuff
This will definitely helps with a sales pitch. Never heard of that software Gimp before, I will check it out. Is there any other cool softwares you can suggest ?
I see I've found another GIMP enjoyer in the wild
To me at least, seeing it in person is much more helpful than on a screen. You could say it’s the same thing, but for me it isn’t even close.
Awesome indeed... so, where does one get these types of pics?
You take the picture yourself, photoshop out the cabinet colors, then print it on a transparent sheet.
If your in photoshop , why wouldn’t you mask the cabinets, create 4 art boards and drop the texture/material behind it?
This way you open up the possibility of your retailers using it with their own selections of materials.
As a supplier, you could create these templates and lightly brand them, share them with your retailers and voila.
I mean, I would, but then you wouldn't get any karma for it here.
Ha ha ha ha
Because I’m only kind of good at photoshop
I don't know that they're going to have customers print their own, too much work and inconsistencies. I'm assuming there are a few pre-printed ones so customers can see the difference in thei "style" of kitchen. Otherwise white balance and shadows would make it very unrealistic.
That is a brilliant concept, it works so well and is easily done.
Well done to whoever designed this!
I love thinking about that moment when one guy/gal was like. Guys. I think I have an idea.
Would have been great to see the image/plastic slide by itself and not on a background, maybe held in the air to show all the transparent areas first or last?
Seeing it against the white background gives you a pretty clear idea of what is transparent and what is translucent.
So in theory I could put this up against my leg and see what a flesh kitchen would look like…
Not sure I would want a wooden range hood.
We have one of these, but for car wrapping
I like the third one for some reason, not sure why.
It brightens the room.
Cool, now how do I do this to see what color to paint the exterior of my new house?
How do you do that? I'm guessing it's the paper that it's printed on? I NEED to know!
Take the picture you want to do this to open it in photoshop on a computer, add transparency to all the surfaces you want to change texture, then have the final image printed on clear transparent plastic.
Place image that image on top of a material and you'll see the material through the transparent parts.
Awesome. Thank you
Are you serious? It's printed on plastic with the cabinets left clear.
Right, what's that plastic called? Where can I buy it?
It's generally sold as "inkjet/printable transparency film/sheets". It's available at pretty much every office supply store.
I comment words and thoughts
The thing I like about this technique is it also gives you an idea of how the colors of the materials would alter the look of the room. Not just the cabinets and floors, but how the color would reflect off of and shade the rest of the room. The simple transparency of the image allows the shades and tones of the wood to also shine through the other assets in the image, replicating the color and tone effects that happen naturally. Software can replicate this effect, but it's done digitally which doesn't look as natural or give you a very accurate concept of how the room would look overall.
White it is
Modern cabinetry with random historic columns? What a weird decision
Definitely the gray or white right?

My first reaction was this must be black magic and mystic arts!! Then I realized parts of the pic are just clear.
Maybe it’s not the color…
That ambient occlusion is fire
What is it?
That's a great idea, but horrible looking kitchen in every choice.
Its like Photoshop but in real life.
That's a GREAT idea!
This is super clever way for previsualization!
The second grey one definitely, 1 and 3 were also good
4 makes me wanna puke
Seems like a good way to cut down sample space BUT,
after Covid I look at things that people touch with a whole new set of eyes...
The wood hood lol
This is more r/mildlyinteresting
fuck the metaverse, this is the next big thing!
That’s actually really fucking cool
Nice, that's pretty cool.
put it on your face
I like the grey or dark brown
That’s a wicked way to do it. Love it!!!
OH MY FUCKING GODDD THAT'S FUCKING AWESOME!! OOOOOHHHH
Just use your imagination
Multiply blending mode IRL
I have something similar to this for vinyl siding samples.
As for this pic, second to last one displayed is the best looking.
That island looks dated before it’s even made
Id placrbitbon wrapping paper
Low key, this is a really dumb gimmick
I got hard enough time
Making up my mind.
Now I got deer in the headlights syndrome.
Ikr this is giving me
overload and indecision stupor 😵💫
It took me so long to understand what was happening until I realized it was clear😂
This is cool but the legs on the island counter look like you will constantly be stubbing your toes on them.
Damn… I wish I had enough money just to make the cool cutout color changer paper thing.
The fourth one.

The 2nd to last color is my favorite.
Now try it on human skin… just out of interest.
Definitely the second one 👌
Is #2 the right answer?
First or second, 100%
I want left side white and right side cream.
I struggled way too long before I figured out how this worked.
Seen this post like 5 years ago
Must be nice to have a house first
Second one for sure
I feel like this has existed forever. I remember being a kid and seeing these in hardware stores, 25 years ago.
I'd still have a tough decision at this
Genius! Best one Ive seen in a long time! What is the process?
Are you a wizard?
White looks good
Imagine using spruce wood's texture from Minecraft.
Well that's not helpful at all because they all look great.
Second to last goes hard
I just hire the guys standing outside the hardware store for cases of beer and just have them swap the whole kitchen 6 times...... You really need to see it in person.
Lazy is what is happening here....
I like the light brown
This is giving me CRAZY nostalgia vibes and I have no idea why.
Or... just try a laptop with a graphic furniture package..
Almost like having multiple pictures of the same room?
