Brilliant App Lets You Try IKEA Furniture In Your Home Before Purchasing It
IKEA is like chocolate, in the sense that, if someone tells you that they hate IKEA, they are most probably lying! They have such a huge selection of fantastic furniture and home accessories, it is easy to get lost in the labyrinth that is an IKEA store. So much so, that some of us actually think several times before starting the car and driving to the nearest store. Others don’t even have that luxury, so they might scroll through the website and sigh every time they see something cute that will definitely look awesome in the corner.
But how can you know if some armchair or lamp will look good in your space or not? IKEA proves that they think ahead of time and they have the perfect solution for everyone that can’t coordinate themselves in space. In this clip, they demonstrate the power of Apple’s ARKit by using your camera in real time to place virtual IKEA furniture in your space, properly scaled and aligned, of course, and take a snap when you are done.
The revolutionary mobile app will transform the way you shop from IKEA from the comfort of your own home, sweet home. So far, the app is only available for iPhone users and comes with Apple’s iOS 11 update, due in October.
Augmented reality is not the stuff of movies any longer!
