3 Uses of Augmented Reality For Customers

The future of Augmented Reality is helping customers shop and access business information in an easy way. Businesses have the resources to easily create AR experiences. Smart shoppers will learn how to access this experience and use it to their advantage.
In this guide, we will go through 3 practical examples of augmented reality in the consumer business world.
Comment at the bottom of this guide with your favorite augmented reality examples in the real world.

Clothes Shopping

Clothing store owners can utilize AR experiences to provide shoppers with an interactive way to obtain product details.
For example, a store could show off their entire inventory in augmented reality. Then, customers can browse in their own home, preview how clothes look on them, and virtually shop without visiting the store at all.
Inside of the store, AR can provide extra information about the clothes you are looking at. Some examples include where a garment was made, if it’s part of a sale or promotion, or if it uses sustainable materials.
Shoppers can conveniently view this information on their mobile device and then share it on social media or other digital channels if they choose to.


Restaurant consumers will be able to use AR in the future to view information about the place like never before. Customers can use augmented reality to get detailed information of ingredients and nutritional value of food items in restaurants.
Or, what if you wanted to preview how dishes look in front of you before you order? Or present daily specials in a visual way that was never possible before.
In turn, this might encourage chefs to experiment and create new recipes more in tune with what consumers want to consume.
Restaurants are already going mobile with features like mobile ordering and pickup and mobile rewards. The next logical step is for food businesses to take advantage of augmented reality and engage with their customers.

Real Estate

Augmented reality can make house shopping easier and more interactive than ever before.
AR developers are creating elaborate visual presentations that immerse potential clients in a specific property. It offers views of the home or building not previously available, such as aerial views and 3D renderings of yet-to-be-built developments.
Maybe you want to view a virtual walk-through of the house you visited in person to make sure you are buying the right place. Or you want to view a house virtually before you make the trip to a house for sale in another city.
These virtual tours give property buyers the power to make a more informed decision, and can help them decide if a home or building is worth moving forward on.
