Why AR is not being used in commerce?

Hi there,

I have been thinking about how AR should be used in retail and e-commerce, however, as I am thinking about it more, it seems like AR hasn’t really taken off in helping people preview products before purchasing them.

I know there are apps like Augmented and Wanna Kicks that attempt that but AR doesn’t seem like a mainstream thing that people use. I think we are still at the stage where we would rather look at a photo of the product rather than 3D model and I am not sure if we will ever change.

One thought that came to mind is that we do not have AR glasses, simple explanation.

Wanted to hear someone else’s thoughts on why we would rather buy shoes and other products by looking at an image and not 3D model.

Thank you!
