Retail Evolves: Shop Out In The World With Visual Search | MobileBehavior

With tools like RedLaser, Amazon, and Google Product Search all running on our mobile phones, retail stores have come under threat of becoming simple display rooms. Users get hands-on with products, decide whether or not they like, and then price check or order online.

Frog Design looks even further into the future, envisioning the entire world as a display case.

In the future nearly every visible thing will be cataloged and indexed, ready to be instantly identified and described to us. Want to go shopping? In the future we won't need big retail stores with aisles of objects on display. We'll be able to shop out in the world (see image, above). Do you like that new car you saw drive by? Or those cool shoes on the woman sitting across the room? All you’ll have to do is look at it and your mobile handset or AR-equipped eyeglasses will identify the object and look up the best price and retailer.

With recent developments in image recognition technology, and Google's acquisition of Plink, this seems entirely possible. While this is definitely further down the road, think about how brands would get their product out into the marketplace. Product placement would take on new meaning.

  1. Anyway err on abercrombie Outlet the side of caution and choose the abercrombie and fitch larger size. If the abercrombie sale size 20 blouse is too big, but abercrombie & fitch the size 18 is too small, choose abercrombie the larger blouse. This will enable you to have it fitted. A seamstress or tailor abercrombie uk can't do anything with a garment that's too small abercrombie london -- he or she can, however, tailor a garment abercrombie and Fitch Polo that's too big to fit you to a T.Most plus size abercrombie Polos women's clothing will fail to fit one particular part of her body.
