TelePresence Tech kiosk: Virtual shopping comes to life

By Chris Cook - Mar 24, 2011

While television manufacturers are working to bring the best that 3D viewing has to offer to the comfort of your living rooms, it seems TelePresence Tech intend on using the technology for retail purposes.

They will bring a whole new meaning to virtual shopping by bringing it to life with their 3D kiosks. The TelePresence Tech Kiosks were spotted at CTIA 2011 where demos were being provided for those fortunate enough to be there.

The kiosk makes a 2D image seem like it is floating and seemingly all angles can be seen of products being d=advertised as if they were actually there. Touchscreens accompany the kiosk allowing shoppers to scroll through like a catalogue and pick which items they wish to get a virtual image of.

Overall this is a less expensive way of bringing products to customers, obviously without the need of a store, and customers can even get face to ‘face’ customer service through the kiosk and buy the items they desire.

More details about the TelePresence Tech technology being used can be found at their official website by clicking the link. What do you think of this new way of virtual shopping? Let us know in the comments below.

    What is an ERP System? Micro Group 2

    ERP stands for enterprise resource planning. The definition of
    enterprise resource planning is, at the core, an integrated software
    solution used to manage a company�s resources. Business planning systems
    have been evolving for decades, and ERP is the latest generation. ERP�s
    direct predecessors, MRP (material requirements planning) and MRP II
    (manufacturing resources planning), focused on running the manufacturing
    and accounting resources of a company. As ERP evolved from these
    two systems, all business management functions, including planning,
    inventory, materials management, engineering, order processing,
    manufacturing, purchasing, accounting and finance, and human resources
    became integrated under the new ERP software system.
    An ERP
    system is technology with a company-wide scope. It joins methodologies
    with software and hardware in order to put together the critical
    back-office functions of a business. Made up of a series of modules that
    are seamlessly linked together through a common database, an ERP system
    enables various operating units such as Accounting, Purchasing,
    Finance, Human Resources, Production, and Distribution to coordinate
    activities, share information, and collaborate.
