Customers of a 7-Eleven convenience store in South Korea can literally go dancing in the aisles…

The new 7-Eleven Smart Convenience Store allows customers to enjoy virtual reality based on IT technologies. On the second floor of its Chinese Embassy store in Seoul’s Myeongdong, 7-Eleven placed six smart tables where customers can enjoy web surfing, gaming and watching Youtube videos in partnership with SK Telecom.

Among the six tables, one features virtual reality technology. If a customer pushes a button saying “Together with Hyeri” (a member of K-pop girl group Girl’s Day), he or she will appear on a wide screen in the floor standing together with Hyeri, a spokesmodel for 7-Eleven.

Customers can dance with Hyeri, and even take photos with the idol star. The photos will be forwarded directly to the customer’s smartphone.
