Shopping Assistant App based on Sony SmartEyeglass

Augmented reality application for Sony SmartEyeglass to assist shoppers. The application was developed to be presented at the 5th Sweden-Ukraine Business Forum to survey practical uses of augmented reality devices.

 

SOLUTION

Initial app idea was to read barcodes with glasses camera and get full product info: name, country of origin, price, weight, etc. However, in the process of development it was realized that barcode reading itself in AR context has little practical use. Therefore, next version of the app was rethought and adapted for daily life.

After rethinking, main functions of the app are as follows:

  • scans product barcodes with a built-in camera,
  • get product details on an augmented screen, e.g. product type, origin country, and price,
  • add products to a virtual cart, and
  • calculate the total cost of the products in the virtual cart.

The application not just allows a customer to easily receive comprehensive information about the product. Since a customer can add or remove the scanned products to the virtual cart, they are always aware of the total price of goods placed in the cart.
