Next time you are wondering about how that piece of IKEA furniture will fit into your living room, save yourself the trip.
Yesterday, IKEA introduced a new augmented-reality app that lets consumers see how furniture pieces would look in any room of a home.
As Fast Company reports, the IKEA Place app will launch with over 2,000 products to choose from (primarily their larger furniture pieces). With the app open, you use the phone to scan the living area you’re testing furniture in, select an Ikea item, resize and place it where it would be in real life.
The catch? You have to have a device that uses Apple’s iOS 11. The operating system will be pushed out to recent Apple devices next week, adding new ARKit technology that will give iPhone and iPad users access to a new suite of augmented reality apps.
