Popular AR-based application sample
IKEA, a luxurious furniture brand from Sweden, introduces AR IKEA Place to help would-be buyers making decisions. This is made possible through virtual matching between products in the store and their respective houses or rooms. The application enables would-be customers virtually placing the furniture inside or outside their houses or their rooms.
One interesting feature of this application is Virtual Try-On/VTO that encourages the potential customers and the existing ones to experiment with the store’s products. Moreover, the application can provide recommendations about the sizes of the products that will suit their rooms or their houses well. The application successfully brings the real experiences visiting the store right at the existing/the potential customers’ hands. All in all, this will boil down their decisions on whether or not purchasing the products.
