The Accenture Technology Labs presents weshopAR – the latest demonstration in retail technology. weshopAR is a mobile application that incorporates augmented reality experiences to the weShop concept. The weShop system brings together the social graph, customer behavioral patterns and customer context to provide a personalized in-store shopping experience. Using the customer's social graph and augmented reality, weshopAR provides insight into the shopping activities of friends, networks, and people with similar social profiles to help the customer make a purchase decision.
