At Hammacher Schlemmer, we take great pride in being the first to bring you revolutionary new technologies, usually via the pages of our long-running catalog. But with our First Augmented Reality Catalog, the innovative technology is the pages!
After downloading the free Hammacher Schlemmer app for iPad, simply scan the specially marked interactive pages in our catalog to overlay a three-dimensional image that literally jumps off the page and onto your iPad’s screen. You can zoom in and out, spin the item 360º, play videos, and access helpful information such as user manuals and customer reviews with just a touch. Items can even be purchased directly from the app. It’s the next best thing to visiting our landmark Manhattan store in person.
Hammacher Schlemmer’s reputation for innovation usually centers on its products, with good reason. Among the revolutionary items we’ve introduced are such household staples as the pop-up toaster, the microwave oven, and the cordless telephone.
However, throughout our 166-year history, we have also pioneered progressive conveniences that greatly enhanced our customers’ shopping experience. We were one of the original 271 subscribers to the Bell Telephone Company, one of the first stores to install electric lighting, and among the first online retailers during the 1980s. Augmented Reality continues this rich tradition of innovation.
Blending the familiarity and convenience of a traditional catalog with the multimedia capabilities of the iPad, our new Augmented Reality Catalog lets you interact with our unique products in a new way that’s not possible with any other catalog. It’s the next evolution of catalog shopping, and it’s only available from Hammacher Schlemmer.
