Walmart may soon let you shop in VR

Walmart has been getting serious about VR and its next project could be a virtual shopping experience. The company has applied for twopatents that describe a virtual reality showroom customers could visit and shop from through VR headsets, Bloomberg reports. In February, Walmart acquired the virtual reality startup Spatialand as part of its effort to push VR initiatives, and in June, it launched a virtual shopping tour that let users peruse a virtual apartment in VR.
