You could have endless fun with this

There are few things more stressful that shopping for furniture. From getting measurements correct to selecting the right colour or shade to everything in between- it’s not the easiest of tasks.

But Swedish retail giant IKEA is about to make our lives so much easier with a genius new app which will allow you to preview how furniture will look in your home before you buy it.

IKEA Place allows you to preview how beds, chairs and storage units would look in a room by pointing your camera at the space you want to put it.

The clever app will then superimpose the scaled image of the selected piece of furniture into the space.




The app will be available as part of Apple’s iOS 11 update in October which will come with augmented reality playing field Apple ARKit.
