SHOPBOX are salvaged shipping containers converted into pop-up stores where hoppers use their phones to checkout.

SHOPBOX may be the new way to shop in the future. Scattered around Brooklyn, New York are salvaged shipping containers that have been converted into pop-up stores. In each container, you will find ready-to-be-bought items from local artisans but you won’t find a store clerk. If you want to see an item more clearly, you can use the remote to control the lighting and move the displays. It gives window shopping a whole new meaning. When you are ready to purchase something, you simply register your details on the mounted iPad and text message your order. The product will then be shipped directly to your home.
