Lowe's Unveils Measure Your Space
Lowe's announced the upcoming launch of Measure Your Space, an intuitive, end-to-end room scanning, measurement and estimate experience in the Lowe's iOS app. Few home improvement projects can move forward without data about a home's space, which can be tough to gather. This new experience is a glimpse into Lowe's vision for spatial commerce, a future where emerging technologies put home data at customers' fingertips, making home improvement more accessible than ever before.

"Home improvement can be complex, but at Lowe's, we're investing in emerging technologies like LiDAR, AI and mixed reality to make home improvement simple and intuitive," said Seemantini Godbole, Lowe's executive vice president and chief information officer. "We see a future in which the devices customers already own can sense, understand and compile information about their home, putting it in their hands the moment they need it. We call this future spatial commerce, and we're excited to bring it to our customers."
