Turn where you live into a "lifelong home"

HomeFit AR is an augmented reality app created from the solutions in the AARP HomeFit Guide. The app enables users to scan a room and discover what improvements can be made to turn where they live into a “lifelong home.” The app identifies design elements and appliances like refrigerators, sinks and stairs then provide additional information with specific “to-dos” or fixes to help make the home safer, more comfortable and a great fit.

The idea for the augmented reality app was born from AARP staff member Miranda Kemp, who pitched her idea at AARP’s All-Staff Summit in May of 2019. Miranda’s idea won and within the six months following, the product development team within AARP Innovation Labs worked to bring the product she envisioned to life.
