3D shopping on Cyber Monday - an immersive online shopping experience

I'm not a big cyber Monday guy, although I do find this cool, 3D shopping experience to be way cool... reminds me of the speculation how virtual Worlds will soon invade cyber shopping in the future as we have companies like Google adding more reality to the experience every day... I'm guessing pretty soon we'll be using Google maps to zoom in using the street side imagery as we walk down the street. Then we enter a store (generated with SketchUp and the amazing 3D renderings that are possible with the tool). Then we can start shopping using a second life to look at products, pick them up, rotate them, and then check out... here's a cool 3D bookstore from Kinset that offers an immersive online shopping experience... the future of shopping for sure!
