Nexter.org has gathered the most futuristic or recently announced technologies for customers.

Here’s how shopping will look like in the nearest future!

Virtual dressing room 

Gap announced last year it will let customers try on clothes without setting foot in a physical store.

The firm unveiled a new pilot app, called the DressingRoom, where customers can ‘try on’ clothes in an augmented reality experience.

Shoppers simply select a Gap style, choose their body type and a digital mannequin wearing the garment appears – and you can also purchase the item from the app.

Amazon’s AR mirror

Amazon has patented a mirror that dresses you in virtual clothes.

You can try on different outfits in virtual locations. A camera at the top of the mirror tracks the user’s body and then a screen behind the reflective panel works with projects to illuminate the picture.

You could, for example, visit a virtual beach and then have the mirror dress you for the part with virtual t-shirts and shorts that follow you as you walk around.

eBay helps in shipping

eBay launched an Android app with AR feature to help you pick the correct box size for shipping.

The AR feature is pretty simple: point your phone at whatever it is you’re trying to ship, and it’ll superimpose an augmented reality box over it so you can figure out if it’ll fit.

Ikea’s Place app

Ikea’s Place app for Android is an augmented reality application that gives you access to 3,200 items from Ikea’s inventory.

With the help of this app, you now can see what they’d look like in your home by placing their 3D versions over your phone’s live view.
