The Challenge Of Integrating iPads Into Stores With the launch of its second popup shop in New York, women’s accessories startup BaubleBar teamed up with design and development firm Gin Lane to explore a new challenge faced by modern retailers: given the impact the Internet has made on how we shop, how can the digital world augment a traditional in-store experience? Most in-store displays today act like smart banners; they either exist for branding purposes only or function as interactive ads. But recently, it’s become increasingly common for stores to experiment with everything from giant, Windows-powered touch displays to the all-familiar iPad. The goal of this experimenting isn’t to look ultra modern or to blindly throw around cash, however. Bringing digital experiences into physical spaces has a certain allure to it.

Indeed, he quoted me at the base commenting that it's not all wine and roses, especially if the roses turn up crushed, or the wine's the wrong variety when it's dropped at your front door. If you bought from a shop, you usually hold the goods in your hands prior to purchasing, but outsourcing that to online involves both a level of trust -- that it'll turn up -- and a hands-off approach to pre-purchase interaction. Traditional retail has long been about the hands-on experience, and that's not something that online retail can easily replicate. It's something that's seen the rise of more experience-based stores -- concepts like Apple Stores or Nescafe's Nespresso stores being the most obvious examples locally -- as well as "pop-up" stores that temporarily spruik a particular brand or range. That's no longer the case.
