AR Copy Paste tool enables users to put image of an object directly to PC

Designer and programmer Cyril Diagne has created an augmented reality tool that can capture images of real-world objects in a couple of seconds and add them to a computer programme.

AR Copy Paste lets users take a real-world photo of an object and drop it into a desktop computer program with a few simple actions on their smartphone.

The app uses augmented reality ( AR) and machine learning technology to detect real-world objects and isolate the image so that the background is removed automatically. Then, users move the smartphone over their computer screen to paste the image of the object into a compatible computer program like Photoshop or InDesign.

Diagne said the application has meant a process that can now be achieved in a few seconds, usually taking a few minutes or hours.

"Thanks to modern machine learning developments, it's now possible to precisely detect people and objects around you, automatically remove the background and transfer the result to virtually any software on your computer," Diagne told Dezeen.

AR Copy Paste can be used in conjunction with a number of applications on Android , iOS and desktops, such as Adobe Creative Suite, Powerpoint, Keynote, MS Paint and Google Docs.

As part of two research projects, the designer used open-source technologies developed: the Boundary-Aware Salient Object Detection (BASNet) and Scale Invariant Feature Transform ( SIFT).

BASNet allows the application to detect the object and remove the background, while SIFT co-ordinates with the computer screen on the phone to ensure the object is placed where the user wants it.

"AR Copy Paste stems from personal interaction design research and explores how machine learning can help make our interactions with digital systems more natural," Diagne explained.

AR Copy Paste is the latest in a series of tests designed by Google artist-in-residence, Diagne.

This time he was surprised by the response to the prototype, with many saying how it could be useful for a number of tasks, such as creating presentations, content for social media, and online selling, and decided to turn it into an application.
