How would you feel if you relax on your couch and it would talk to you about your day? Well, this imploding idea certainly seems unconventional, but furniture retailer IKEA is ready to embrace its world class furniture with AI systems.

Company’s innovation lab Space 10 is contemporarily surveying people regarding their views on having a virtual assistant embedded in their furniture. The survey contains various questions like the gender of AI system, its religion and the services it should offer.

Although IKEA has already enabled its furniture with some smart solutions like Wireless Charging and Smart Lights, this move of making furniture smart will certainly revolutionize the entire market of AI systems.
