What if we could try the products before buying online?


We love buying products online, not just because we don't have enough time to visit a store because it's easy to search for what we want from a variety of choices. Even we get great deals sometimes. But it still has one problem that we can't try things or look at them in real life. What if you could try things before buying online. Augmented Reality(AR) brings that superpower to you.


Instead of imagining how the glasses will look on you, you can try them.
Team Lenskart in India brings the feature with '3D Try On' option. Where you can virtually visualize and interact with the glasses like changing the color of the frame or entirely changing the frame.

Facebook recently introduced AR ads in its News Feed. Where you can try different shades of a lipstick on your lips to find which one suits you most. Or you can check how perfectly the center table fits in your living room.

Snapchat released a similar feature in April calling it 'shoppable AR'. Where they show ads within the lenses with an included button to the shopping page, an app-install page, a video or a website.

The giant Amazon has it too!  Its called 'AR view', which lets you view product in your home before you buy them. You can see how they fit in size or match in color with your room.

AR brings an entire shift toward the future of online shopping. In few years we will be trying the products as we check the product image these days.
