A New Type of Shopping


Shopping is getting a new look and big stores are buying into the latest technology.

When it comes to snatching up your latest desire more people are skipping the stores and heading online. But that doesn't mean brick and mortar stores are on their way out. Instead they are changing the way they do business in order to keep customers interested.

For example industry experts say one of the things they expect to see in stores of the future are holograms in dressing rooms. These will allow people to try on clothes without getting undressed. Or if the store doesn't have the coffee cup or picture frame you just have to have shoppers will be able to print out full versions using 3D technology.

Shopping will also become easier for household items. Soon a well-connected home will sense when a light bulb is about to blow out and order a new one. Or your washing machine will put in a request for more detergent when you're running low. Looks like all you have to do is pick it up from the front door.
