But Korea turned their marketing business to a whole new virtual reality. They have just made the first virtual store. It may seem look like a regular store but what it differentiates to the other is that instead of having a real item, all they show you is pictures of goods which carry a small barcode. For you to be able to shop, you must now bring out your smartphones instead of baskets. Shoppers should be able to download an application called Homeplus and can purchase by taking pictures of the barcode. Goods will then be given upon payment. Homeplus can also be used even when you are nowhere near the virtual store. Just open the application, choose your item, and it will be then delivered on your doorstep.
