A unique shopping experience with 5G

5G is radically changing our ways of shopping. That’s a relief for anybody who hates digging into piles of clothing or is opposed to fitting rooms with a five-piece limit. Are you looking for highly personalized shopping advice? All your wishes will be granted.

Fitting clothing in augmented reality

Not into physical shopping? That’s okay. Thanks to the ultra-fast mobile data-exchange of 5G, clothing boutiques can present their latest collections with the aid of augmented reality goggles. Put them on to select clothes filtered by size, type or color and create matching outfits. You’ll also know immediately whether a piece is available or not. If you really like something, you can also ‘try it on’.

Check your outfit in a ‘magic mirror’

In the future, it’s possible to virtually try on clothes, without really wearing them. You are facing a mirror, full of camera’s connected to a mobile network. The algorithms will reflect an image of yourself wearing the outfit, with the possibility of a 360° visualization. Ready to buy? Throw your pants or sweater in your virtual basket and check out, ready to discover the next store.

Highly personal advice

You don’t find what you are looking for? Or you really can’t make up your mind? Shop assistants are still there to help. Based on your client profile, salesmen will be able to dig up the perfect outfit from a virtual stock. They can point out reductions, so you’re always dressed to the nines.

The requisite, powerful 5G network

The new technology will unleash a true shopping revolution. In order to develop its full potential, we need a powerful mobile network that accommodates for a massive exchange of data, the storage of virtual collections and real-time browsing. Such a network exists, it’s called 5G. When it will be used as the new standard in communications, shops will benefit greatly.
