Still trapped in thoughts that how it is gonna work, what’s the advantage and what will be the disadvantages??
Huh!! Take a chill pill.
Let me give you a tour and I hope at the end you will get all your answers.
What It Is Now – Present
Truly said by Frank Biocca that Virtual Reality is the first step in a grand adventure into the landscape of the Imagination.
I can bet you also faced the situation when you saw something online but wasn’t sure whether to buy it or not because you wanna see it personally.
What if that product will magically come in front of you?
Virtual Reality shopping can make that possible and believe it or not, it can be done right now from your browser.
It’s true you can read it again, now the e-commerce industry is also taken by VR.
Do you know Virtual Reality was introduced in 1968?
And from then it is getting better and acquiring every type of industry.
From games to 360 degrees VR videos, there is plenty to dig into, there are also Gear VR apps that will leave you surprised by its results.
VR e-commerce is giving a different agenda to the customers from 2016 but still vendors and firms are not ready to take the advantage.
In 2016, Alibaba the Chinese e-commerce giant introduced a virtual experience that could be accessed with a VR headset knows as Buy+.
This allows users to roam in the store, look through the items and you can also add items to the cart by just staring at the product for a long time.

By this, I hope you can see how VR is setting goals for the online shopping experience.
This doesn’t end here there are many examples of VR in the e-commerce as it is improving customer experience by providing them lifelike feel.
Ikea also Opted VR to give a boost to their business. This version of virtual reality shopping feels like a more enveloping version of Google street view.
You can wander into the store and can design your furniture the way you like it.
The big firms such as Amazon is also in the race of adopting Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality as their weapon to take over the market.
Audi does the same with cars at their showrooms other than this the e-commerce firm eBay also launched the virtual reality departmental store which is simulated by a web of floating objects rather than a physical store.
How can VR transform shopping experience?
The answer is when the user shops with VR headset on they are given the opportunity to encounter the products from every angle with the freedom to move, rotate and zoom in on them however they choose.
It will end the barrier between ‘Real’ and ‘Virtual’.
When we merge AD and VR with e-commerce, the user gets an incredible ‘WOW’ factor as experience. These are the words of the people who tried to see the future through VR.
Virtual reality doesn’t completely replicate the in-person shopping experience, but yeah it’s reaching there.
It’s also getting cheaper and more accessible, now you just need a smartphone and a VR gadget to endure the best VR shopping.
I can say that soon AR will become increasingly desirable in any market strategy.
Don’t Just Dream, Do – Future
Different can be scary. It’s unknown.
But different is good and pretty incredible, really.
If someone would have asked me what will be the future when I was 6 years old, I would have said some mystical things such as flying cars, robots as cops or might be something stupid.
But yeah all of that is happening right here in front of my eyes.
30-40 years ago the games were more of physical tasks and you also needed different things to play the games such as football for playing football.
But now we have photorealistic, 3D, virtual reality augmented reality like technologies which changed the whole experience of gaming.
Imagine if you could be transported to Rome or you can feel the thrill of speeding Lamborghini by just slipping on VR headset.
You know what now I can’t say that anything is Impossible because VR and AR proved that now we don’t need to be physically available to endure something. We can encounter the same simulated feel at sitting home on our couch.
From PokemonGo till now the AR and VR totally changed the perspective of looking at the market.
These technological trends are covering every sector and getting the attraction of people in retail e-commerce.
Might be after a few years you just need a phone and VR gadget for merely everything from shopping to traveling or for all your thrilling desires.
Don’t speak anything because you can’t say what future withholds in it.
Let your imagination go wild and trust me they will take you to the heights of success in your business.
Soon, the AR and VR technologies will rule over the future of e-commerce.
It’s prophesied that 200 million VR headsets will be sold by the year 2030.
I think till that VR company would do well to focus on enhancing the price, quality, and style of the VR glasses.
No matter what sector you belong to, VR absolutely holds a significant place in it. While the technology is perfect yet, it does hold extensive potential for sales, marketing, and branding.
Though it’s a future talk, it would be wise to jump on board now.
Otherwise, you could virtually get left behind.
Unexplored Feasibilities – Scope
Richard Ollier said it right that the future of real estate is the virtual tour, where you can change everything inside the property, repaint the walls, change the flooring, add your own stuff inside, and teleport yourself into your future home.

And while smartphones have taken the AR and Virtual Reality applications that fit comfortably in our hands, how much long-drawn will it until we start seeing ordinary wearable glasses that let us experience AR hand-free?
There’s still a lot to figure out, but as will all game-changing technology that was once newborn and untapped, it is only a matter of time until the world of tomorrow becomes today’s.
Start with a powerful vision. Have clarity on what you’d like to accomplish, understand the technologies that can make your vision happen, then recruit developers who can turn it into a reality.
And don’t neglect that virtual reality technology should be more about experiences than technology. No matter what type of VR campaign you have, make sure it offers value and gives users an experience they won’t find anywhere else.
Paint the walls according to your imaginations friends, maybe they will get a shape tomorrow.
