Sony Launches and Augmented Reality TV Picking Tool

Posted Fri Aug 26, 2011 at 09:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

Want to see what a huge TV would look like in your living room without shelling out the big bucks? Now you can!

It’s the age old problem with picking TVs. You want something that’s nice and big, but not something that’s going to fill your whole room. You also want to make sure you’re not grabbing something that sounds big but ends up looking tiny when set up.

Sony has a new tool out for those that want to try out a few sizes without having to bring an actual TV into the house. It’s not the quickest process, but it’s simple enough to do.

You’ll have to print out a symbol on a piece of paper and attach it to the wall where you’d like your new TV to go. Then you take a photograph of the location and upload it to Sony’s site. From there you can play with different TVs and find the one that works best for you.
