Looking to furnish or even re-furnsih your home, but don’t know where to start? IKEa’s augmented reality seems like a great way to test drive some options from the comfort of your home. Here’s what Gizmag has to say about it all:
Even when you’re armed with precise measurements, trying to imagine exactly how that stunning new sofa will look in your living room is not an easy task. It will therefore come as no surprise that leading retailer IKEA has found that 14 percent of its customers end up taking home furniture which turns out to be the wrong size for its intended location.
