At the corporation’s booth, based on their latest presentation tool, brand proposal, and the corporation’s next-generation retail interior design concept, “Augmented Retail ~ Mixed Reality ~,” SEMBA CORPORATION has combined various fashion and music contents into one same VR/MR space design. Using STYLY’s latest function, Multi-player Mode (available in β version), SEMBA has created a space where multiple users could simultaneously enter one similar space, allowing visitors to travel between the real and the VR/MR world to experience this next-generation design content.

Coordinating both the real interior designs with virtual designs during its creation, the exhibited content this time is an experimental content that fused the uniqueness of virtuality with reality.

Users who are interested in creating the next generation of retail interior design which combines realities with virtuality should contact SEMBA CORPORATION’s Corporate Communication Division (https://www.semba1008.co.jp/).

 Content Overview

<Main Theme>
—Augmented Retail—

As the next generation of technology, with which the real world is augmented with virtuality, is just one step ahead, how will retail interior design changes cope with the new possibilities of the future? Don’t miss your chance to experience SEMBA CORPORATION’s next-generation retail interior design, which encompasses our vision for the future.

<Conceptual Content>

・Portal
An entrance where users can quickly approach the corporation’s “interpretation of the world portrayed through MR and VR.” This entrance also serves as the gateway leading to the following four scenes.

・Portfolio
A floating VR gallery portraying the corporation’s portfolio until the present day. As the gallery is presented in a seemingly infinite virtual space, users can freely experience SEMBA’s various projects from both Japan and overseas at any time and from anywhere.

・BIM/Photogrammetry
A special performance that combines BIM data, photogrammetry, together with the uniqueness of VR/MR. Different from models created by foams and paper documents, with this content, users can experience various models directly at real scale. With this new technology which creates highly realistic sensations, SEMBA aims to establish a new service that employs pioneering VR/MR technologies as a communication tool.

・Apparel
A content where users can directly experience the future of apparel shops. As the world of fashion embraces fast digitalizing trends in designing, SEMBA aims to create a new way for users to experience the latest fashionable expressions through VR and MR. Including the detailed coordination of the products being displayed within the stores, with these new technologies, users can directly confirm the feelings given off from the clothes in addition to simulating their own coordination within the digital space.

・Music
This content represents the future of music stores. With VR and MR technologies, music stores of the future can not only provide users with their personalized music list but also create a new dynamic digital space combining both music and spatial expressions, allowing users to experience the songs of their choices. Based on this concept, SEMBA has brought two different themes to visiting users: “Meet your new music” and “Delve into the music you love” with the exhibited contents.
