KAYAK introduces AR bag measurement tool

KAYAK has introduced its patent-pending bag measurement tool supported by augmented reality (AR), the company said.

With the dimensions of carry-on luggage differing from airline to airline, KAYAK´s AR bag measurement tool helps travelers recognize whether or not their luggage will fit in the overheads bins no matter the airline and all before arriving at the airport.

KAYAK´s tech team created the tool during their annual “SWAT” week – a weeklong engineering competition filled with rapid design and development. KAYAK continuously invests in innovative technologies – including AR, VR, AI and voice technology – to raise the bar on how you plan and manage travel.

KAYAK, a travel search engine, searches other sites to show travelers the information they need to find the right flights, hotels, rental cars and vacation packages. KAYAK is an independently managed subsidiary of Booking Holdings Inc (NASDAQ: BKNG).
