Korea's Got the Coolest Stuff

A friend of mine sent me this link and I was like: "A virtual grocery store? Brilliant!"

But the thing is, if anyone can do it, Korea can. They are so technologically advanced and service orientated, it's totally expected.

Basically, it's a shopping experience catered for those too busy to shop. Tesco (similar to the American version of Walmart) has created a virtual supermarket in a subway station. While waiting for your train to arrive, why not get your grocery shopping done in the meantime?

I know, it's a busy mom's dream come true.

First, browse through the products on the wall. Then scan the bar code of the item you want with your cell phone. And viola! A basket of your goods will be delivered directly to your apartment!

See? It's cool. Very cool.

Yes! Thanks for the link Jen!

I could see something like this being very helpful to those who are house-bound but can get on the computer. What a service that would be!

Marcia said...

I can well imagine something like this coming. Very neat way to fit your shopping in!

Oh, that is very cool. Sure beats staring at the floor or the ads you've read a million times.

Very cool...but I love going to the Saturday market here in France. I guess it all depends on the experience!

I didn't know Tescos had branched into Korea, they are a British firm but we haven't got anything like that over here.

The Golden Eagle said...

I wish there were things like that here! It sounds very useful.

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

We had Tesco in the UK too, but I never saw anything quite this cool! How awesome!

Christina Farley said...

Yes! Tesco is a British chain, but I a lot of the items they carry are Korean. It's kind of like what they did with Costco (American company) and added in Korean items too.

Medeia Sharif said...

How cool. I'd love to shop like that.

Talli Roland said...

Holy mackeral. This is awesome. Could they put one in my bathroom so I can shop while waiting for my daughter to do her business? That would be a real time-saver.
