(TheStreet)  China-based e-commerce company Alibaba announced last week that it is about to introduce new technology that will allow customers to purchase goods online by simply nodding their heads. The new method is possible thanks to virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) technology. Consumers who shop the company’s virtual shopping mall through VR or AR goggles will simply be able to nod to make a purchase, rather than taking off their goggles and fishing for their mobile phones or wallets.
“It is very boring to have to take off your goggles for payment,” said the head of the project. “With this you need never take out your phone.”
