From Interactive Shopping Signs to Futuristic Shopping Beacons

 - Aug 7, 2014
The rate at which retail technology innovations are developing is exponential and puts a distinct emphasis on ease of use for consumers. The retail game has changed; consumers are walking into stores with headphones on, staring at their smartphones or simply shopping online. As such, retailers are trying to make for a push back into stores by appealing to a preference for technological integration.

Instead of trying to push the benefits of a face-to-face experience, these retail technology innovations highlight ease of use and interactivity to effectively make the experience both physically and mentally rewarding for shoppers. Whether it be the utilization of beacon technology that tells you about a flash sale on another floor or the use of augmented reality, these retail technology innovations are as fun to browse through as they are to experience.
