REVIEW: Raise The Red Laser

REVIEW: Raise The Red Laser

As a novice in the world of young professionalism making my way through “the big city,” I know how crucial it can be to save a dollar here or there, and though I am not much of a compulsive buyer, I’m always looking for opportunities to soften the blow of big purchases…and the small ones too. The Red Laser Barcode Scanner is one such app that helps to accomplish this.

Couponing, to me, is a little too much of a chore. I am, however, a compulsive comparison shopper with practically everything that I buy. Red Laser builds off of this concept and basically provides its user with a personal price check right there on their phone. Using the phone’s camera as a barcode scanner, simply hold the phone over the desired product’s tag and voila! The app produces a list of store locations where the item can be purchased at competitive pricing. Users can toggle between online and local deals, details about the product, reviews, and suggestions of other products that may be comparable to the one being considered.

Some time ago, the human race united in collective pursuit of a dream. That dream was to never have to leave their homes for anything again. Press forward some centuries and countless advances in technology later and what started as a cockeyed fantasy put forth by our ancestors is very close to being realized.

This particular step towards actualization is brought to us by the team at Fits.me; a European company that hopes to revolutionize the way that people shop for clothes online. What they have created is a virtual model that allows users of affiliated shopping sites to see how clothes would look on their exact body type before they purchase them online. They call it, The Virtual Fitting Room.

To use, customers simply click the extension that looks like this on their favorite shopping site.
