How can you make online grocery shopping more attractive? - is 3D technology an option?
I definitely also agree that the technology at the moment is not that far in order to be able to simulate feels, smells or similar product aspects. But who knows, technology might be able to solve these issues soon. In terms of the Relay Foods: I really like the look and feel of the Homepage, but have a question to the business model. As far as I understand, Farmers pick the fruits for the customers, so they won't have this experience of self picking either? How did you achieve that customers "trust" you to pick the right ones?

Do you think a 3D-real life like experience could give you that feeling that you descried in your last sentence? Or is this too early? Generation Z and Y(partly) grew up with the internet and use it for everything. They communicate online, play online, hang out online, don't you think they would maybe also like to shop online? it's convenient, they have more time for themselves etc.?

I agree it's all about answering these questions. But I was more looking at retailers that have an existing platform and assumed they did their groundwork right. I believe the online shopping objective is to home-deliver groceries (or whatever product) in order to save time and for convenience. If you have a look at current online shopping pages however, they are tedious and most of the time you hardly find the product if you don't know the brand or its name. I believe 3D technology could catch people who never shopped online before because they weren't happy with the technique, were not born in the internet generation, or were simply not interested in online shopping because it didn't offer an experience.

I believe if you combined 3D technology with a good and efficient search function you could make a customers life much easier. Just imagine rather than having a list of products with tiny pictures where you have to click through 10 pages in order to find your product (because you might not know what type of toothpaste you are looking for) you're standing in front of a virtual shelf where you exactly know where your product is... ? I think this would have potential if it's not too much 2nd Life like.

Under what circumstances would you share a taxi with a stranger?
Thanks for your answer Fritzie, you're right, the idea is not new and I'm aware of this, but in my opinion there has not been a single successful implication of this idea outside of the "airport to city" routes. I know there has been a few start ups recently in the US who tried to do the same but there has to be more behind the fear of sharing privacy with a stranger. Talking to people i've heard sentences like "if i take the luxurity of a taxi, then i want to enjoy it myself" or "what if this person then does something to me?" I guess safety or a perceived safety are the most important thing in this concept, but I have not figured out properly how this could be achieved.
