How People Would Shop using VR Technology
Statista.com says,

“The aim of VR is to create a sensory experience for the user sometimes including sight, touch, hearing, smell, or even taste. “

There are many ways in which we can imagine how customers would be able to enhance their shopping experience. For example, a customer could take a 3-D photo of themselves and try all sorts of apparel virtually, right from shirts and trousers and sarees. As another option, a shop owner can create a virtual model of a room. Customers would then be able to readily see which furniture looks good in an environment and decide what to purchase. With further advancements coming up in the future, using VR for shopping will get even more simple and easy.
