Following the release of iOS 11 and Apple’s much-hyped ARKit augmented reality platform, Ikea’s new furniture-testing “Place” app has officially landed in the App Store.

Ikea Place lets users take advantage of AR technology to position furniture from the Ikea catalog in their own home. The “try before you buy” concept shows off ARKit’s impressive ability to handle 3D scaling with millimeter-accurate positioning.
