For Your AR App Folder: IKEA Releases Augmented Reality App for iOS
For any number of reasons (app to demo and share, in need of furniture (-:, etc.) here’s a recently released AR app from IKEA for iOS.
From IKEA’s Announcement:
IKEA announces the launch of IKEA Place, an augmented reality (AR) application that lets people confidently experience, experiment and share how good design transforms any space, such as a home, office, school or studio.
Built on Apple’s new ARKit technology, IKEA Place marks an important milestone in the IKEA digital transformation journey. IKEA is one of the first home furnishing brands in the world to bring this technology to people, shifting the way we purchase furniture in the future.
The app automatically scales products – based on room dimensions – with 98% accuracy. The AR technology is so precise that you will be able to see the texture of the fabric, as well as how light and shadows are rendered on your furnishings.
