Ever have trouble imagining if the couch in the latest fall issue of your favorite furniture store magazine fits in your living room? What colour matches your decore?What about the delivery expense and not to mention the hassle might add to a potentially stressful situation. What if AR can help you decorate before you renovate. Ikea is making this possible with a new AR app. The app is built using Apple’s new augmented reality ARkit and works with the latest apple products.

Check out the catalog , find the piece you like and put it in your living room. Try it in different configurations, change the colour , make a decision and order online.

This concept can apply to many other applications. I.e. clothing, painting, gardening. Now if only the Ikea furniture arrives put together or with a robot that does it for you….. More realistically, an AR app that helps with the assembling instructions. That I would buy for sure.
