IKEA Augmented-Reality App Shows How Furniture Items Would Look In Real Space
By Anthea Quay, 29 Oct 2012
IKEA has released an augmented-reality app, developed by District Nerds, that may change the way users shop for furniture.
Called ‘IKEA Now’, the free app lets users see how the furniture items from IKEA’s catalog would look like in their homes before they buy the item.
The app features the 3D models of various furniture pieces, that users can use to determine if the furniture’s dimensions, style and fit are suitable in real space through augmented-reality.
IKEA Now also lets users take a photo of the 3D-furniture within the real space, and lets users read more information about the product.
Currently, the app features 50 pieces of furniture—the company will be adding more furniture pieces soon.
IKEA Now can be downloaded from the iTunes store—and it will soon be available for Android devices.
