Virtual supermarkets are popping up in subway stations in South Korea, where commuters can virtually shop for items while waiting for the train to come. Customers simply scan an item’s QR code using the free “Homeplus” app and can have it delivered to their doorstep before they even get home.

Wow! I kinda love this idea.
considering how long I put off getting groceries because I don’t want to bike to the store, this would be so useful and awesome. Especially since the home delivery is free.
