Walmart gets 3D virtual shopping

Soon you will not have to leave your home... if some of you still do

Walmart is introducing 3D virtual shopping on its website that would help customers browse and choose items for their homes.

 The new feature will allow customers to take a virtual shopping tour of a curated apartment showcasing about 70 items from national brands, besides Walmart’s private label offerings.

 Starting from July, the company said it would allow customers to add a group of items to a cart that will provide a complete look for their apartments and homes.
The US retail giant is pouring billions of dollars into beefing up its e-commerce business and recently announced partnerships with logistics companies to deliver groceries ordered online.

Walmart’s technology incubator, Store No 8, bought virtual reality startup Spatialand in February to build VR products for the retailer’s stores and websites.

It has the advantage that rather than just buying what you need,  you can end up impulse buying or seeing something new. You also don't have to worry about checkouts and other humans standing in the way of the thing you want to look at.
