Immersive Retail: Connected Shopping in a New Era

With the pandemic accelerating changes in retail, the movement from brick-and-mortar to online is now inevitable. To survive post-pandemic, physical retail outlets will have to become an experiential destination.

What major initiatives is the industry pursuing to enable the widespread proliferation of AR/VR and 3D content for e-commerce and retail?
