TapPainter: See What Your Room Looks Life Before You Paint It


Choosing the right paint color for rooms in your pad isn’t always easy, because colors do look slightly different when they are actually on walls, and it’s especially hard to get an idea from a few little paint swatches. That’s one of the reasons why this new app might work really well. It lets you visualize how your walls would look with any kind of paint.

TapPainter is an augmented reality app that lets you easily render how your walls would look like after your next makeover. It doesn’t just slap the color over an image of your wall either. It takes into account ambient lighting, shadows and other in the environment as well, and is designed to automatically differentiate walls from other surfaces.

The app includes paint color decks from companies like Benjamin Moore, Behr, California Paints, Dunn Edwards, Dutch Boy, Sherwin Williams, and more. You just take a picture of your room, enter a color code, and you can get cracking.

An iPad version is already available for $4.99 in the iTunes App Store, but its makers are raising funds on Kickstarter to support development of Android and iPhone versions, as well as a Pro version of the application with collaborative messaging, more paint brands and other refinements.
