Buy Groceries In A South Korean Subway Using Augmented Reality. Future Rules.

Welcome the future, where everything is amazing and glimmers. Save for when it’s rotting in glorious dystopian fashion. Anyways. Busy? Need to snag some groceries? Now using the power of augmented reality, South Koreans can get their shopping done. In the subway.


Called E-Marts, these virtual stores are stocked by supermarkets like European grocery store giant Tesco and Home Plus – but they sell their goods via glowing pictures on subway platforms. Shoppers waiting for a train can simply look at the walls to view potential groceries, scan the respective QR codes with their smartphone, and then have their groceries delivered by the time they reach their homes.

So fucking swag.
