In a kind of magical, home furnishings, witchcraft move IKEA have updated their app to include an augmented reality feature – allowing users to ‘place’ pieces of furniture in their own homes using their chosen device. Ninety pages of their latest catalogue will be AR enabled, simply scan your chosen item, place the catalogue on the floor where you’d like to see it then watch in amazement as your screen shows a 3D model of that potential new sofa or desk in your living room. If you like the look of it, go ahead and buy. What next eh?
The 2014 IKEA catalogue gives you the ability to place virtual furniture in your own home with the help of augmented reality. Unlock the feature by scanning selected pages in the 2014 printed IKEA catalogue with the IKEA catalogue application (available for iOS and Android) or by browsing the pages in the digital 2014 IKEA catalogue on your smartphone or tablet. Then simply place the printed IKEA catalogue where you want to put the furniture in your room, choose a product from a selection of the IKEA range and see how it will look in your home!
