Optimal AR UX for Complex Purchases — How immersive technology boosts shopper success for personalized, configured products
|Augmented Reality for eCommerce is everywhere. Major retailers and Shopify have mainstreamed 3D. But so far, nearly all product shoppers do is simply “see this in their room.” For complex, configurable, personalized purchases, this isn’t enough.
This session focuses on effective AR uses that increase user success with planning and decision-making. Think of projects such as a kitchen redesign — design aesthetics, myriad features/options, physical characteristics, and lack of buyer knowledge all stand in the way.
I’ll discuss wide-ranging aspects of AR’s potential and provide a framework for planning product-focused applications. I’ll share lots of examples and insights from recent projects, plus others I’ve found along the way, including UX principles for image-based visualizers and configurators refined over 2 decades. This knowledge with help spur ideas for your own projects.
Going beyond, I’ll align user expectations with present and future capabilities of 3D platforms/engines/hardware, giving you a working knowledge for the next generation of 3D: Mixed- and eXtended-Reality.
