I own an Oculus Rift that I use for gaming purposes, recently I have been experimenting with my VR hardware's when shopping for online games on Oculus home and to be honest the shopping experience is exciting and effective since I can get to see in real-time the products and services I'm about to purchase and even test them when I'm still at home.
When I was shopping using my Oculus rift, I thought about incorporating the technology with my business, the problem was the infrastructure needed to enable my customers experience this kind of shopping experience will crush my small business with extra charges and I decided to hold it for a while until the business financial is favorable enough or until the cost of such infrastructure are affordable.
Technology is growing at alarming late, fast forward to today I realized I can incorporate Virtual reality shopping and combine it with modernized operational processes all for free thanks to Scanetchain and blockchain technology.
In this blog entry I'm going to cover the features of the Scanetchain projects that I love the most and I believe will be beneficial for my business and also improve the user experience of my clients.
Scanetchain: Open Market platform.
Scanetchain is a platform where entrepreneurs like me can upload their contents and sell them just like an online store, but with more benefits such as smart contracts capabilities, immutable records keeping and for my clients they will be able to get a market which is brought together by an interlinked ecosystem of small businesses that powered by blockchain technology – something like a virtual shopping mall.
Users will be able to access the platform both on chain and off chain, where users will be able to access the platform when on the internet and when offline. When users are offline they can be able to access scanetchain services but will only be able to make changes and modify their contents when using the on-chain parts.
Scanetchain blockchain has several layers, the core layer and the application layer where businesses can build their applications for their businesses. The application layer has benefits of both the core blockchain and the custom application layer they have built.
The applications layers will be used to manage operations of their businesses such as managing contents and transactions while the core layer maintains and supports the applications layers. The two layers communicate through the REST API which is supported by the parent blockchain.
Cloud-based AR streaming system.
Small businesses like mine will be able to reduce charges they have to pay when hosting their services in traditional ecommerce sites through a cloud-based AR streaming services provided by Scanetchain.
Users will be able to stream contents straight from the online Scanetchain platform to their VR without incurring significant data costs and storage problems in their devices.
To enable streaming of contents Scanetchain has built an AR module that will be responsible for streaming services, AR module is customized to allow accurate products identification and render them in 3D format.
Scanetchain Photo Magnet.
Business like mine will be able to use the services of Scanetchain through PhotoMagnet to order events and videos and place them on Scanetchain. This means that I will be able create phot-magnets to advertise them where users will be able to access them when online and offline the platform.
