Furniture #3: Ikea

Ikea has always been an innovator in the interactive space. Which makes perfect sense considering their shopping experience.

I found another room planner, and while it's not Ultimate! (there's an echo when I type the word), it's got a more playful personality than any of the others. Actually it's got a bit of personality...where the others don't.

This planner is made specifically for planning a door room:

There's a How It Works section that plays videos showing you how to use the app. This section is mainly going to be for the parents.

There's preset themes you can modify yourself. The menu is below where you can drag and position the items in the room. This is the Dance Machine theme. It's just missing the huge bong hookah.

Here's what I ended up with. You can't really see it in the pic above, but they tally the prices. Just over 500 bucks for this. Not counting the xbox, computer, stereo system and plasma tv. Which I would have wanted, but not had.

And we close the chapter on furniture. What fun we had.

I'm a Digital ACD in Advertising land. I have been in love with the internet for over 10 years now. And I have a Red Bull problem. There I said it.

I travel around different industries every week or so and look for interesting and tasty interactive bits. I hope to make this a place for ad folk to keep up to date. And I just enjoy the spelunk.
