S3E2 Retail Transformers - Neil Redding - Auki Labs

Season 3 | Episode 2
1h 12m | Jun 16, 2023

How will retailers embrace immersive commerce? Will it be via AR or VR or both? To answer this question, we meet our latest Retail Transformer – Neil Redding, head of product at Auki Labs. Plus, we welcome special guest host back to the show, Jeff Roster, host of This Week in Innovation podcast. Together we explore why AR and spatial computing may be the answer retailers are looking for to give digital assets a physical presence in the shopper journey. We also examine the impact of Apple’s new Vision Pro mixed reality headset and how this both legitimizes and forever changes the AR/VR landscape. Join us for a unique discussion where we unpack why and how this matters for retail – our conclusions may surprise you!
