10 Inventions That Will Revolutionize Retail

Since the first shopping list was etched on stone 8,000 years ago in Mesopotamia, Homo sapiens have relied on certain objects to navigate our path to purchase (or gathering). In the current era of rapid technological advancement, many of the objects that will have the greatest impact on our shopping experiences are just now being invented. The next 10 years will bring more change than the past 50.
Working with Intel, who use a Futurecasting approach that combines social science and data with a splash of science fiction, David and Jon have developed a glimpse of the retail future through objects not yet invented or commercialized. From holostores and sentient stores to intelligent shelves and biosensor-enabled smart clothing, we’ll discuss how to harness the power of innovations yet to come in a retail world that is increasingly globalized, digitized, polarized and personalized. We’ll also discuss what we can learn from Asia, which is at the forefront of retail innovation.
