The Virtual Reality of Shopping

The Virtual Reality of Shopping

We've all been there: your 'inseparable' group of shopping friends drifts apart as life takes its toll and you move away. Perhaps you'll have a reunion every now and then, snatching a moment of the good old days back for all-too-short a time. Sounds rather dismal, doesn't it? Luckily for all of us, the days of social shopping are coming back in force.

Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality shopping, once seen as impossibly futuristic, have now been with us for a couple of years already. Of course, it's all well and good putting a chunky headset on to look at the same old Amazon store page you're familiar with, but new developments in the technology are starting to bring the 'shopping' part back into our lives.

Crucially, you'll be able to bring your like-minded friends along with you, because who wants to go out shopping on their own? Share your favourite shops, browse together and 

The UK High Street's own VR and AR apps transport you right into a fully virtual High Street where you can stroll around visiting shops at your leisure - and leisure is the key word here. Too often is online shopping a mad dash to the cold and impersonal checkout, a desperate race to leave sterile marketplaces behind so you can get back to the warmth of life. By offering you a slower, friendlier pace and bringing your friends along for the trip, the UK High Street is bringing back the fun of shopping without all the constraints of travel holding you back.

VR shopping shows no signs of slowing down, either. Thanks to the explosion of VR and AR technology and the unique ability to preview goods as if they were in front of you Goldman Sachs predicts spending through VR will reach $1.6 billion by 2025, and estimates keep rising! You can be sure that the moment VR headsets hit the mainstream there'll be an explosion of interest in virtual shopping, so get your feet on the ground early with the UK High Street!
