Conventional shopping has lost its traction. Where people used to scurry around the city centers and malls to get their fashion kicks, they now surf the internet to research the lowest prices possible. But what if you want to try on the newest sneakers, that pair of glasses you have your eye on or that dress you need for Jessy’s Bar mitzvah? Augmented Reality of course!

Retailers like amazon have already started using your pictures to put a frame upon your nose and show you what those 200 dollar frames look like before your very eyes. Likewise, by stepping in front of a mirror and projecting a dress onto yourself you can see what you are going to look like before even touching the fabric. Stores like Topshop have already started incorporating these features in their brick and mortar locations. 

But you can even find this phenomenon within home design. Ikea for instance has an app for your phone which shows you how that “Billy” closet looks against your wall, or even that “Vindum” rug on your floor.

It doesn’t stop there though. Our food industries have taken note as well. Grocery shopping can take for ever if you don’t know what you are looking for, or better yet where, to find it. Apps like Retail AR guide you to your designated product within no time. It’s even possible to give you nutrition facts and price quotes for each product within the store.

Like I’ve said in an earlier blog, the future is digital. Innovations like AR will give us a more efficient way to complete chores and even make us enjoy it more.

Let’s talk again soon.
