IKEA Launch Genius New App
Everyone has been there. Especially students who don’t live at home. The amount of things you need to think about before you even dream of purchasing what you want as well as trying to fit everything into a small space - writes Campus.ie.
Apart from the price and the quality of the product you also need some idea of what the item will look like in your home.
Fear not, as Swedish retail giant IKEA are launching a new app that will allow you to try out the furniture in your home before you buy it all from your phone.
IKEA Place will allow prospective buyers to preview how beds, chairs and storage units will look in a room simply by pointing their camera at the space they want to fill.
The app will then superimpose the scaled image of the selected piece of furniture into the space. How clever.
The app will be available as part of Apple’s iOS 11 update in October which will come with augmented reality playing field Apple ARKit.
