Online home décor shopping website mebelkart.com has launched their augmented reality app Funterior to help buyers get an idea of how their selected furniture would suit their home spaces.
The app provides buyers an option to choose a home decor product of their choice from the Funterior catalogue, adjust it in their rooms through their mobile devices, get a look and feel of how it’s going to look in their living rooms and make an informed choice.
The app also has features to click pictures and share them through popular social media websites.
Funterior is intended at providing assistance to users who are unsure about how the product would actually look after the purchase and also at reducing returns for online portals.
Here is a video on how the app works:
