A step into the future of immersive commerce

If you look at 2D images, text presentations, and videos, then those mechanisms in the existing online world are built to scale very well in width, but require attention per point. That means brands can only acquire one or two seconds of attention, which is, in our opinion, not deep enough to present world-changing products and opinions, especially given the average consumer’s short attention span.

Now, immersive online experiences are actually the opposite. They capture visitors for much longer through curiosity; they stimulate the idea of, “I want to look around; I want to know more.” And that is exactly what we are doing for our clients: We have created this beautiful online experience in order to accelerate the future of online shopping.

"The execution is impressive." - Forbes
