Gestural interaction and virtual sales tools

New man/machine interfaces (particularly "gestural" interfaces) and virtual worlds are growing fields of applications. Here we show that such technological environments can be considered for sales in the not-too-distant future. We offer a tool controlled by gestures, allowing customers to browse and interact within a virtual 3D retail space. The presented prototype offers a vision of online sales that goes beyond the methods currently used, while putting forward numerous motivating issues for research. In all likelihood, this class of tool will see substantial growth.
