See What Your Furniture Looks Like In Your Home Before You Buy It!

Susan Dickenson writes in "Home Accents Today's" June, 2011 issue that the iPad may revolutionize the home furnishings' selling process. 15 million iPads were sold in 2010. IDC market intelligence predicts that 70 million units will be shipped 2012. The iPad, Dickenson writes, "...has found a niche with sellers of home furnishings as a more efficient way to sell lamps, wall d├ęcor, accessories, rugs and accent furniture."
"For those early adopters, the iPad is replacing product photos and catalogs, enhancing their sales presentations and keeping them organized."
Now in Technology comes "a virtual reality interior designer that lets you try before you buy" Using both an iPhone and an iPad, you can upload your floor plan, project a life sized room and add life sized sofas and accent furniture. Then, using an iPad application, see the room in 3D.

It's not here yet, but technology is changing the retail environment.
