07 virtual mirror

One of the main problems that people have with online shopping is that customers usually don’t get the chance to try out what they’re purchasing and they never know how it’s going to look on them, especially when they shop for clothes or accessories. Well, it looks like we’re one step closer to solving that problem. The folks over at boutique accessories in Australia are now making use of augmented reality technology to offer customers a chance to try on ear rings, necklaces and other accessories before they buy them. All they have to do is allow the website to interact with their webcam, calibrate their position on the screen and they’re good to go. With a few clicks you can decide or not whether those earrings suit you and you can even take snapshots for your future reference. Head over to Boutique Accessories to give the virtual mirror a go.
