Trading Depot, an online bathroom retailer, has been named as the first KBB trader to employ technology from the Virtual Worlds Augmented Reality app.

The app, which allows installers and users to visualise any display model before they purchase it, has a library of 3D branded product models. This library enables customers to see how different configurations and finishes work, using augmented reality technology. It is marketed as an innovative solution to the high premiums placed on showrooms and display models.
