Online shopping has improved drastically in the last few years. Those little videos of the models actually moving while wearing the clothes? Super helpful. But we're about to see the biggest technological advancement yet: 3D online shopping.

Maybe it'll be something like this? Either way, your online shopping habit is about to get way more extreme.
