IS "A.R." SHOPPING BECOMING THE NEW NORMAL?







CHANGE (verb)


To make or become different.


Since the start of the quarantine

online shopping has become the number

one hobby for us all.


Online business has been booming

for many companies due to the

nationwide shut down and Amazon alone has made over

$33 Billion since Covid19. These numbers are based on the ridiculous bulk shopping that many of us are guilty of and we have yet to notice how we are changing our economy day by day.


Soon online shopping will become the new normal, and going into stores will be a thing of the past. Now that we are forced to use ecommerce sites we are finding everything we need at a push of a button. From groceries, electronics, furniture, and even appliances we can have anything and everything delivered to our doorstep!


Even before the pandemic, back in 2019 GOAT sneaker marketplace released an AR (Augmented Reality) feature, that allows you to virtually try on high end sneakers. According to hiphopwired.com “This isn’t the first time the online sneaker marketplace utilized AR. GOAT used the technology to unveil Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG’s before they officially launched.”


With this new technology there will be so many different alterations of shopping that will adjust to our current lifestyle. AR shopping has recently been the go to for those who usually stand in line for the latest release of shoes or exclusive items. Virtual shopping could be the start of being able to virtually “try” before you “buy” just about anything, from clothes, cars, shoes, or even a home!
