Submitted by Legal.Troll

Lowe's has announced they will be testing a new tablet-interfaced "holoroom" designed to allow customers to see a visual representation of kitchen installations in real time while they browse. An iPad with custom software will be used to conduct the user-driven product demonstration. The thing only looks about ten times creepier than a giant MRI machine, so I have no problem being one of the first to walk in and let it project laser beams at me so that the sales force can be laid off!
