3 Ways to Shop Using Virtual Reality

It wasn’t that long ago buying online  was a game changer. However, it was a hassle if you got the wrong size or color. The List’s Teresa Strasser shares our list of companies that have reinvented the way we shop with virtual reality.


1.  VR Platform for Makeup

Facecake partnered with Cargo Cosmetics to create this platform that only requires a webcam and browser. These allow you to try on different shades of lipstick and eye shadow before you buy.


2.  Full-Body 3D Dressing Room

FX Mirror created this virtual fitting room that measures your body dimensions in real time.

Switch from one outfit to another instantly without the hassle of trying on and off clothes.

You can then easily share your fitting results on social media.


3.  Visualize Remodeling Projects in 3D

Imagine a place where you could take your ideas and make them real. Welcome to Lowe's Holoroom, where you can design home projects in a 3D space, instantly changing counter tops, paint colors, and cabinet finishes. Using Oculus Rift goggles, you'll be fully immersed in the room you created.


That’s what we call shopping a virtually new way.
