Seolleung station in Seoul houses the world’s first ever virtual supermarket. The supermarket itself is located simply along the pillars inside the subway station because, funnily enough, it doesn’t need to take up any room.
It was built and designed by Home Plus — a company that is owned by both Samsung and Tesco.
You can browse a lot of different products that the average supermarket stocks - and a photo of each product is used to make each ‘shelf’ life-like.
To buy a product, simply download an application to your smart phone, beep the barcode (as you would with a barcode scanner) and voila! — the product will then be purchased through your phone and delivered accordingly to your home. Snazzy.
