World`s First Virtual Store

5 years ago

Browsing through my facebook, a friend of mine posted this article about the World`s First Virtual Store in Korea. Interesting, I thought, so I googled about it.

Turns out, there are stores all over Korea named <strong>Homeplus</strong> whose idea was to "let the store come to the people." Basically, all the items are presented to you as pictures through LCD screens. None of the products are actually in the store, and when you check out, you don`t carry the items out with you. How does it work?
1 - You scan the QR code of the product you want to purchase with your phone.
2 - The product will be listed in your online/virtual cart where you can adjust how many you want.
3 - After you pay for it through your phone, your items are delivered to your house.

Quite weird I thought. But if you`re stranded at a subway station and you need to buy groceries, you can simply check out using this system and it`ll be at your house by the time you get home.

<strong>What do you guys think?</strong>
