AR for marketing
It is nothing new anymore that visual content is indispensable for convincing the customer to buy. AR brings a new level of marketing experience and creates many new ways to present products. The user now dives into a digital world of a product and is able to experience it before buying. An emotional connection can be build and used as persuasion.
While the place for information of physical products is nearly always limited, with AR there is infinite place and possibilities to give more information about the origin, production process or other background knowledge about the product.

• give a better user experience
