The stunning and innovative technology that will change online shopping experience
This year at the RAE’s Internet Retailing Expo, Augment Paris HQ will be showcasing their stunning technology that sets a new trend for internet retailing: Augmented Reality.
Augmented reality (AR) is a technology that layers computer-generated enhancements atop an existing reality in order to make it more meaningful through the ability to interact with it. AR is being developed into apps and used on mobile devices to blend digital components into the real world in such a way that they enhance one another, but can also be easily told apart.
Imagine the needs and benefits of visiting a local physical retail store being replaced by AR. Even more accurately, it aims to improve and bring a brand-new shopping experience to consumers by using a digital model of a product to simulate its existence in everyday reality. This highly customised online shopping experience is what retailers desire to implement in their businesses. RAE’s surprises don’t end here; many more exciting features and technologies await visitors.
In addition, more exciting retail technologies will also be showcasing at RAE. More information on exhibitors and products, please visit: www.retailasiaexpo.com/hk/
