 "Fujitsu Forum 2019" will be held on May 17 at the Tokyo International Forum. The theme for 2019 is “Human Centric Innovation: Driving a Trusted Future”. Prior to the event, a press conference and a demonstration tour were held on the 14th .

Approximately 100 services utilizing virtual reality (VR), artificial intelligence (AI), and 5G are displayed for each theme and industry. This article introduces the VR shopping service "FUJITSU Business Application SNAPEC-EX" that left a lasting impression.

SNAPEC-EX is a service that enables online shopping using VR technology. The VR content base is handled by GAROU, an American startup company. It is exhibited at the booth of "Digital Marketing Department".

In the living room of a high-rise apartment, you can see a stuffed toy in the shopping experience.

Conventionally, even if you can see and experience products in VR, you have to make purchases in the real world. With this service, you can purchase it through e-commerce (EC) after browsing. In addition, it is also possible to take photos of the products and post them on Instagram and other social media platform.

The company says it is also interesting in the tourism industry. At the exhibition booth, in addition to the stuffed animals mentioned earlier, they also showed how to sell travel tickets to New York. We hope that users will be able to experience sightseeing at Central Park in VR, which will lead to actual visits.

As nearly 300 professionals from the architecture, engineering and construction industries watched, AECOM Tishman’s Anthony Pastore, Santiago Calatrava’s Gabriel Calatrava, Garou’s Gaspard Giroud, and Epic Games’ Marien El Alaoui met-up inside a full-scale virtual reality version of the Oculus during Build: London ’18. While stationed at their offices in New York, Paris, and London, the team highlighted the stunning design features and construction practices employed to build the icon.

Approximately 800 square feet, the Oculus is the pinnacle of the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey’s Transportation Hub – an instant icon of the rebuilt World Trade Center site. It’s comprised of 11,000 tons of steel fabricated in Northern Italy, which arrived in 588 parts. The curtain wall is comprised of almost 800 panels of glass and functions as an operable skylight, called the “wedge of light.” In addition, the structure contains over 300,000 square feet of marble – all pre-layed, assembled, and cataloged prior to shipping.

If this virtual reality technology existed prior to the Oculus’ construction, the team would have been able to mitigate conflicts by trouble shooting every minute detail to ensure it all worked together. Today, it can allow project teams to experience what the finished building’s height, width, and depth feels like before picking up a single tool; see how plumbing, electrical, and other utilities fit into the structure; and share exactly how they intend to deal with challenges – all before breaking ground.
